ANOTHER GATHERING OF THE JUGGALOS INFOMERCIAL? WHAT DID WE DO TO BE SO BLESSED?

570

In June, ICP released their annual infomercial for their annual Gathering of the Juggalos, the largest music festival I still can’t believe a) exists and b) has never been napalmed. That commercial ran twenty-seven minutes long, or about a minute for every IQ point of your average Juggalo, so you’d think that everything there was to be said about this ridiculous event had, indeed, been said.

But you’d think wrong. Not only has ICP now released a second infomercial for the Gathering, but this one is THIRTY-THREE MINUTES LONG. To give you some idea of how crazy that is, keep in mind that a single episode of a half-hour network sitcom only runs about twenty-two minutes (the other eight minutes being, of course, devoted to commercials).

Why do these things have to be so friggin’ long? Do Juggalos really need to be convinced that they should attend this thing? Did adding Charlie Sheen to the line-up merit more than another half-hour of material? Or did some poor starving child ask the group for a donation, and they were just like, “Fuck you, we’re making a thirty-three minute commercial for our festival instead?” The mind boggles.
