1990S - Inaction Jackson by jbwarner86 1990S - Inaction Jackson by jbwarner86

Apparently there's some kind of sporting event happening today? I don't know. But 25 years ago, the big draw wasn't so much the game itself (ho-hum, another washout for the Bills, who didn't see that coming?) but the halftime show, starring America's most beloved white-skinned black guy. This strip isn't exaggerated, by the way. He just stood there for the first two minutes and people ate it up. He could've just gone for the whole fifteen and I bet no one would've minded.

What strip do you have in mind for Beavis and Butt-Head?

So I was wondering if you would do a strip based off of Michael and Janet's "Scream" video when you get to 1995...

And about a decade later, Prince probably gave the most memorable halftime show.

Well, MJ did snap his head to look at the other end of the Rose Bowl every thirty seconds; that should count as some sort of action, right?  Anyway, it sure beat what the N[o] F[un] L[eague] used to put on as Super Bowl halftime 'entertainment'.  Brian Boitano?  Up With People?  Sheesh!! :yawn:

Are you gonna do a strip based off of the movie Groundhog Day?

"When people pay 500$ to watch you fuckin' existing."

Somehow, that line couldn't be better made.

I remember this. Exactly why did Michael wait so long to start his performance?

Good timing, too, that episode premiered literally the day before this happened :)

There was also the poofing of the stunt doubles. That was a thing. It was so long before there was an X-Men movie, too.
The word is heckling, not riffing.

Riffing works too.

No it doesn't. It's too official sounding from a bunch of kids who don't know enough about what they're doing- imitating, really- to even get the name of what they're doing right.
MST2K may call it riffing, but that's because it's an intentionally created comedy skit where they razz a movie's soft underbelly.
It's like the F16 kids are using a different name incorrectly in intentionally trying to block out the concept that they're acting like Statler and Waldorf from the Muppets. Doing it because the target is stupid is one thing (Spaced Invaders), but not even getting it right (and therefore being stupid) is another. JB doesn't take suggestions, but if Joel ever realizes all that, I can only expect a proper "what am I doing with my life" scene of Joel curled up behind the sofa.
