BABY MASSAGE
Possibly the funniest image next to seeing David Cross dressed as a cigar was Jay Johnston painstakingly applying massage techniques to a baby. “Crazy Devil Kiddy Massage Cream penetrates layers of cute chub to kill pain where it starts,” says the commercial

BABY MASSAGE
Possibly the funniest image next to seeing David Cross dressed as a cigar was Jay Johnston painstakingly applying massage techniques to a baby. “Crazy Devil Kiddy Massage Cream penetrates layers of cute chub to kill pain where it starts,” says the commercial as a baby lies there having his aches and pains taken care of. What could be stupider than a baby having aches and pains from stiff old muscles that have barely even begun to form? Nothing according to most bourgeois parents here in the 2007s. Baby massage has become so popular amongst the Baby Einstein generation, parents feel like they’ve let their kid down if they don’t get in there and kill the pain where it starts.
Mr. Show: 1 Reality: 1

“It’s become almost impossible to make fun of things,” says David Cross from his ostentatious apartment in New York City, “I can’t even think of something that won’t exist in five years.” “I can” ads Bob from LA, “A snake with wings that tells people to fuck off using sign language.” All right, well, they didn’t say that exactly but I sent them these quotes asking them to sign off on them and they both basically said, “Whatever.” Actually, David said, “I don’t care” and Bob said, “What do you want me to say. It’s a magazine article and magazine articles are always about as funny as my last two movies which is not much.”

I think the fake quotes are a little more apropos.

    you could also do the daily show repetitively using “NAMBLA.” But that’s not exactly reality I suppose.

  2. […] Besides the part about having sex with animals, this invasive use of a lie detector being used for hiring mundane jobs seems like another instance where Mr Show sketches become reality… […]

  3. […] year I wrote about seven Mr Show skits that became reality. Since then there’s been a few more. Street Carnage reader Eddie Essey pointed out […]
