At one point, the 1984 documentary Mondo Elvis was on YouTube in its entirety. For whatever reason, those days have passed, and that's a shame because holy fucking shit the Internet needs this! It's a half an hour of people still reeling over the death of the King and saying insane things about him as a result. My favorite lines are in the video above. My favorites of those favorites are:
Artie Mentz (Elvis impersonator): "I don't imitate Elvis. I don't try to be Elvis. I just do his music and dress in the style which he did."
Judy Carroll: "I almost died at birth. I was stillborn."
Frankie "Buttons" Horrocks: "There's no way I would choose the singin' over the screwin' any day!"
Also LOVE Artie's wife's repeated use of the word "mystic." Her ability to work it in where it isn't appropriate is what's really mystic.
So yeah, it's your daily dose of outlandish people saying outlandish things. The freaks and weirdos are what keep me going.
Update: Holy shit, guys - I highly recommend you check out the actual video page on YouTube for this so that you can watch it with YouTube's Beta captions, which are entirely inaccurate and thus entirely hilarious. My favorite voice-to-text (/nonsense-to-nonsense) translations are below...
Coons! This reminds me of a section in "Fight the Power": "Elvis was a hero to most, but he never meant shit to me you see / Straight up racist that sucker was simple and plain / Motherfuck him and John Wayne!"
And now, a trend:
YouTube captions: giving you the world news whether you want it or not.
I assume that Sonya is the one who's writing these. So yes, thank you, Sonya. Afghanistan you very munch.
