The hell was up with that billboard? Are the aliens wearing the glasses from They Live?

Squirrel: Isn't that wonderful?!
Alien: No, it's terrible!
Me: EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE


Also I nearly died laughing at that 1992 Olympics cut in. Random fun fact, that was the year of my birth!

fuck this, i'm finished.

Fandango said...

Instant klassic.

Trish said...

At first I thought this was a straight random weird kids movie that decided, just because, to spend several lines of dialogue in the beginning explaining why their aliens happen to speak English. And then it became... something else. Something *special*.

I must say the 1992 Olympic stamp commercial was well played.

But... The aliens had perfect grammar from the beginning. Why would they need to improve their grammar? This would have made more sense if they weren't speaking normally from the beginning. :/

The part about gerunds is really fucked up.

Ms. President? How progressive.

But really WTH? Why are there obese squirrels? Why does that one puppets have a lantern jaw and why was that talking dog painting that billboard????

BiggerJ said...

The aliens probably assumed that the understandable trouble they had learning grammar the usual way would cause massive problems, and wanted to expedite the process for when the time comes to teach their entire species.

Aside from some creepy animal puppets, I found this actually pretty adorable. I would have watched the shit out of this as a kid. Oh hell. I would watch the shit out of this *now.* Hee hee.

Rspringar said...

I swear to non-existing god i watched this in elementary school!

English's master plan? Isn't this what Jared Loughner believed in?

I really thought this was another Christian kids' video at first. I was pleasantly surprised..

Is that a 4-digit rotary phone at 1:40?? You'd think that aliens would have more advanced communications....

Brennan said...

That was amazing.

Pudding said...

First he learns English from some old guy at a NY deli, then he grills a pair of squirrels in novelty wigs over the methodology of human linguistics? And he's the leader of a race of beings who just one day somehow FORGOT their own method of communication, with a second-in-command who can't even hold the basic premise of their mission in his memory for the length of time it takes to reach Earth. So apparently, if marauding aliens ever do invade us, all we have to do is pelt them with Adderall and 7th grade text books and they'll leave us the hell alone!

i think part or their trouble comes from "watching earth radio", unless they can see shit i can't (likely with those sweet triangle eyes.)
