Celery -- Just some bros hanging out. Probably a bit NSFW.

At first I hated it, and then I loved it.

Yeah, i have a feeling it will get equal amounts of both.

So basically this is a video of two guys making out after mocking a third guy for being gay for ordering / eating celery?

Okay then.

This feels the same to me as watching wrestling on tv.

I want to dislike this, but that was a super-hot makeout.

They made out pretty good, I will give them that.

The key to good physical comedy is commitment, and those boys certainly have it.

I support dudes making out, so I support this?

people! For the love of god please light your scenes correctly! I could barely see any tongue

Hah, hah, gays!

That was funny, if a bit amateurish. For instance, did you notice when the two actors broke character and started making out?

That was a queer video.

Boys making out = good. Boys making out with mouths full of celery = slightly less so.

So when the Frat Dudes In A Box art thing was going on, I wonder how many people held up "20 bucks if you make out" notes against the glass?

I have to admit, I did not see that coming. If they'd been dressed in suits and in a Congressional chamber, I would have, though.

I grew up in a redneck logging town back in the dark ages(70s and 80s) and to this day I am convinced that some of the most homophobic dudes from that time were actually gay which is why I enjoyed this more than i thought I would.
posted by Phlegmco(tm) at 10:45 AM on March 9, 2011


i liked the part where they made out
posted by nathancaswell at 10:56 AM on March 9, 2011


I could have done without the celery, to be frank.
posted by uncleozzy at 11:00 AM on March 9, 2011


The only question I'm left with, is how do they plan on splitting the bill?

That's likely going to be confusing and disturbing for them.

In this day and age, tax and tip add 28% to the cost of the meal, which is not an insignificant amount.

lol

I saw this a few days ago - really funny! I quite enjoyed it and several of their other films.
posted by Craig at 11:03 AM on March 9, 2011


It was funny when the bros made out. A little gross too, because I kept thinking, "what if some of the celery that was in bro#1's mouth gets into bro #2's mouth?"

I always thought celery comes with wings.

I don't mind their swapping spit but chewed up celery! ugh.

MetaFilter: that off menu really super hot sauce.

Celery is probably about halfway down the list of food items that would gross me out if they were in somebodys mouth while making out with them. Probably like this from best to worst.

1) hard candy like cherry life savers.
2) werther's originals
...
50) celery
51) carrots
...
100) half chewed pot roast.

That's just me though

Dammit. It never even occurred to me to put half-chewed pot roast on my list. Now I have to revise.
posted by rusty at 12:01 PM on March 9, 2011


Any kind of Indian food is the worst thing to have in your (or their) mouth when you're making out.
posted by Mister_A at 12:03 PM on March 9, 2011


Equal parts awful and awesome.

Nonsense. There's nothing more romantic than ABC Skoal shared between bros.

Only at places that are trying to justify $15 for 12 or some equally ridiculous price.

Two things: When I was in highschool, there was a jock named Ron who'd follow me around threatening to kick my ass and calling me all sorts of ugly homophobic crap. He was huge and I was scrawny and so I never really found a way to put him in his place. It was too frightening contemplating his fists against my face.

A couple of years after highschool, my then-bf and I were out on the town and who do we bump into in the street dressed in the most outlandish Little Richard looking dragschtick? Old Ron. A giant bouffant, pumps, lipstick, Pointer Sisters era gown, the works. And hanging on the arms of an older queen who'd given me lots of peptalks when I wanted to take a knife to my wrists in my youth.

Some very interesting looks were exchanged as you can guess.

Years later and I'm dating this amazing lady. She'd grown up in Nevada and had had very little exposure to black people. Perhaps due to her whiteness she didn't really get how the power of words could really do damage to a person.

On a junket in a stolen car down the westcoast she asked if I wanted to try an experiment. I would call her any scandalous thing for white folks and she'd do the same against my blackness.

I was a bit trepidacious to say the least, but I loved her and wanted to see where this would go. Well we started and it quickly turned into her laughing and continuing and me stopping too quickly and bursting into tears. It cut just too quick.

Watching that video brought both of those moments back to mind for me and all I could feel was a bit of sickness watching it.

I get the joke and it's not too far off from being funny, but the kid in blue looks like Tom Cruise, Jr and the one he makes out with looks like he's on a mission from the realms of straightness. Not far enough away from the ugly and that kiss was not real enough for me.

But hey, everybody's a critic, right?

I got to "Make it snappy because the last time wasn't..." before I had to tab out and avoid punching my laptop.
posted by dantsea at 1:55 PM on March 9, 2011


dantsea: yeah, that's kind of part of the point of the whole video, I think. There is really hard-core jerkatude going on for so much of that video, complete with fratboy homophobic and sexist mocking of someone sitting at the same table as them (let alone the abuse of the waitstaff)...

And then the whole thing takes this surreal left-turn and becomes something else entirely.

As I said above... I hated it at first. But then I loved it. I think if just anyone had tossed this video at me, I would have quit around the same point you did. But, it's MetaFilter, and it's empath, and those two things together helped me hang in through the hate and to discover the true joy that is this short little skit.

Yeah - the awful is really, genuinely awful. The awesome is equally so (although more in my astonished pleasure that this got made at all than at any really superlative quality in the acting.)
posted by restless_nomad at 3:07 PM on March 9, 2011


I liked it, thought it was funny, then went on to watch many of their other films, all of which were more funny than not.

You mean, strangely arousing?
posted by en forme de poire at 7:52 PM on March 9, 2011



That was exactly as it should have been. And then, it was all a little too real. I mean, when you're not in the situation, when it gets told to you by someone who was there - it's wild and funny and totally nuts. But when you're the guy who ordered the celery?
