Video: Goths Visit Bed, Bath & Beyond in Portlandia Sketch


Hooray for the new season of Portlandia! I felt the show ran out of gas after the first couple of seasons but returned to form last year with a new format, increased production value and extra laughs. And so far so good with the latest one, which just began, too.

Having invited Glenn Danzig himself onto the show as a special guest and using a Misfits t-shirt as a focal point for another sketch last season, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein have seemingly realized the humor potential inherent in punk and metal: the goth characters from the Danzig skit are back, this time for a sojourn to home goods staple Bed, Bath & Beyond.

I don’t think I need to explain the endless possibilities for hilarity that such a situation presents, so here, just watch (or go here if the embed isn’t working):
