Eh, I thought the video was fairly humourous when I first saw it. I don't think it's valid to say that finding humor in it is making light of sexual assault...because she wasn't sexually assaulted. This video is totally separate from sexual assault.

Part of the reason it's amusing is because both the mom and the daughter are being rather stupid about the whole thing. The daughter certainly could have been safer about meeting someone from the internet, but generally speaking the odds were on her side in terms of safety. The mother, on the other hand, comes across as one of those "everyone on the internet is a murdering rapist!" people...and the fact she geels the need to call all of her daughter's friends when she didn't get home by 10pm is just further evidence of that paranoia and overprotection.

As much of a jerk as the brother was being, I think he was probably the only one who saw how ludicrous both of them were being.

Brothers that age do stupid shit like that. It's the mother laughing at it that makes me cry.

You know, it's funny or it would have been if it had remained in the family. The brother is an obnoxious ass who needs to be smacked upside the head. The mother is can't parent her way out of a paper bag.

It's a sitcom for the era.


Where it stops being funny is when the idiot brother posted this for everyone to see on youtube.

That's just cruel and mean to his sister.

Lack of respect isn't funny.

it's a good look into the lowest common denominator of america, which is why it's FUCKING HILARIOUS.

you all can act like it doesn't exist but this is video proof of why people suck

I don't think anyone is acting like this video doesn't exist. It's just that some of us wish it didn't.

It makes me a little nauseous. They're all terrible people, or at the very least depicted at their absolute worst (I hope).

I'm not denying that it exists... I just don't find it funny when it is real. If this was some sort of sitcom... it would probably elicit a chuckle (in the butt could even be a catch phrase that would sweep the nation).

When it's real? Not so much.

I had mostly the same reaction as you: the brother is a douche bag.

I can only hope the sister posts the sequel video (meant to "stay in the family") of her beating the shit out of her younger, meaner brother.



This gives me an idea... Imagine a real life sitcom where people video tape the horrible horrible things that happen in their homes and post them online! It will be dynamite. It might even get better ratings than the show with Ustwo and WillRavel as roommates. Why are they roommates and in college still, you ask? Just work with me here, it flows better than them being neighbors. It'll be dynamite.

Pretty funny but goes to show that most people that make bad decisions don't think they are bad decisions when they make them and teens typically take the longest to realize and/or admit that their decision was indeed bad.

Is no one else picking up the subtext in the video?

It's obvious that both the brother and the sister consider that meeting someone from the internet is not a serious issue, but the mother has paranoid concerns about her daughter meeting a "stranger" from the internet although she is 18 years of age.

He's using catch phrases he's probably heard his mother use hundreds of times.(Get some SENSE in your head, You could have been raped, that could have been a pedophile, etc) He's mocking the situation because he knows that there was as low a probability of his sister being raped/murdered/raped IN THE BUTT as if she were to meet a stranger at a party for five minutes and hit it off.

In reality, he is mocking his mother's attitudes about the nature of the internet, probably due to scare stories she's read/seen in the media; rather than making light of rape and murder. (although there is a little of that; I don't think he believes it could happen to his sister, and if it did i'm sure he would not be laughing.)

America already has a show that reveals home wrecking and family ruining details about a person- Moment of Truth.

jesus

you know what makes me cry?? people taking this so seriously. it's not like he went into a shelter that housed abused and raped women and started making fun of rape. read between the lines a little bit people.

if people on here (me and others who will be obvious) joke about nailing crack head hookers and killing people.. is that so wrong? it's obviously not because it's not called out. so if you're going to have a nut sack because someone says the word rape.. then use it on all offensive stuff. just remember.. what's offensive to you isn't always offensive to others. all this "what if" stuff is amazing. it's black and white.. it's put out in a video .. yet as soon as the word rape or whatever comes up.. "OH MY GOD! He's disrespecting women and she could have been raped and here's stats to prove it!" .. seriously.

Damn them! They have somehow stolen my idea and ingeniously devised a way making it appear that they came up with it first... Their trickery must know no end.

The fiends! At least you can still work on the reality show: Grassroots Heros, where you document the lives of Trailer Trash and ask penetrating questions about the braided rope that is their family tree.

BWAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! This thread is HILARIOUS! and no offense to you Shauk, love, but i cant see how it went on for two pages?

ok, so, please don't shoot me /me covers head with arms but i kinda get what Jinn is saying...

However, this was not the thread for it... and i'm sure we all get what Jinn was saying, cos we are not DOF (STCHUPID) peeps.

We all know that rape is serious and is not something to be joked about ...

but seriously, SHE WAS NOT RAPED! i look at this video and i laugh cos had that been my brother, and his friend was there, i would have just nicely asked my bro to hand me the cam please, ask his friend to keep on taping and kicked the SHIT outta him and the still put it on you tube.

how this thread took such a turn is beyond me.

when i first saw this thread i thought it might have been a sequel to the song in some thread that escapes me now... "I said what what, in the butt, i said what what, in the butt!!! you wannadoitinmy butt, in my butt!" LOL

WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

wierd, i just watched it and the only person who really spoke any sense was the brother. the mum simply grounded her but the brother drew out exactly what happened. perhaps it wasn´t the best idea for the girl to meet this random guy at his friend´s house. not sure she´s going to do it again after such a grilling from her brother. i think his method was poor but i think he was the only one to get any serious sense across to his sister.
