Here's the thing. This guy definitely represents pretty much everything that is wrong with the world in a one minute video. However, it is funny. Actually, it's HILARIOUS. Whether you hate the Rangers or some of the overly pretentious people that call themselves Rangers fan or not, you absolutely have to laugh at that video. With that said, you don't have to feel like you are laughing at a person that you loathe. I absolutely refuse to believe the person that I just watched give that interview exists in society. What are there chances someone that absurd got selected to speak on national television? The guy that I watched grab his chain mid-interview, and talk about paying for a $4,500 dollar ticket in all 'Benjamin Franklins' is not a real life person. No person that incredibly preposterous is sober. Alcohol would be the only excuse that someone would have to be that fucking obnoxious.
Watching that interview is basically the same thing as watching a parody video on YouTube. That guy was like the 'Saturday Night Live' version of a pompous, bombastic Rangers fan. It was a self promotional video. Was it exaggerated? Yup. Was it douchey? It was basically the personification of the word. That's the point. I highly doubt that's the last we have heard of Will Rouse. He's a persona that doesn't exist behind closed doors. The character he just played in front of the entire nation is perfectly sculpted to be a character on a reality show that people love to hate. For fuck's sake 'Jersey Shore' consistently had like a billion viewers and this guy puts their entertainment value to shame. That's why it is okay to laugh. You aren't laughing with him. You are laughing at him. You are laughing at what he represents. If by some slight chance that I am wrong you have full reign to tee off on this guy if you run into him in public. You have my full blessing to steal his chain and take him for all his hundreds. Until then he's just another person using a fabricated personality to go viral for the first time, and I got to say, he did a hell of a job.
P.S. "Benjamin Franklin's is killin' the gammme" is an A+ line, and if you aren't jealous that you didn't come up with it first then you aren't being honest with yourself.
