Another week, another new Beavis And Butt-head! (Ha, wow, that’s still funny to type out.) This latest episode was great. Come check out both segments after the break because “I understand your frustration!”
Our dynamic duo are on the couch watching an olde-tyme program in which a man is asking his girlfriend’s father for “her daughter’s hand” in marriage. Unfortunately, they miss that last part and assume that by asking a girl’s father for “their daughter’s hand”, their chances of getting handskis goes up significantly. Butt-head, always the lead idiot, takes charge by consulting with Victoria’s father, a well-to-do nice guy who appreciates their chivalry, but suggests it will be ‘quite a wait’ as she already has a boyfriend. So what do they do? They chill on the curb. A neighbor tells them to try again and the dad rejects them once again. When they inadvertently reveal their ulterior motive, he just about kills them when the neighbor steps in, advising the father to ‘keep his hands to himself’. The light bulb goes off: they should keep their hands to themselves. …that’s right.
Real Life: I’m A Psychic Medium (“I predict you’re not going to finish your wings and I will eat the rest!”), Katy Perry’s “Firework”, and 16 and Pregnant (dumbass dude sits around playing Xbox, seriously).
“I understand your frustration.” I could not count how many times I felt uneasy watching this because of how accurately they portray over-the-phone customers. When our stupendous pair go to find the abandoned drive-in and chuck rocks at the snack bar, they find it’s been paved over and replaced with an office building for a tech support firm. They wander in and upon hearing in on Hamid’s calls (“I have only been working here for a short distance!”), he tells them to pick up headsets and go at it. This works well as they advised customers to kick their computer and “to shut up and tell me how to get porn.” When Hamid complains to his supervisor, he advises Hamid to adapt to their quick resolve style (“Uh, ma’am, could you say trackball again?” “I am Hamid, I am Chinese. Do not hang up on me!”). Hamid does so, causing a meltdown at the local power plant which pulls power throughout the complex. Beavis and Butt-head have had enough, grabbing a monitor and a keyboard, and leave. Passer-bys think they’re looting the place and crash their truck through the glass facade to get in on the action.
