26 Sep Bo Burnham’s Take on Music: Repetitive, Very Repetitive
Comedian Bo Burnham dropped a new music video recently for “Repeat Stuff,” an irresistibly catchy (and slightly bloody) tune featuring a small appearance by Paul Scheer as Burnham’s high powered agent. Even better is the comment Burnham left on the video for his fans:
MUCH LOVE TO ALL MY FANS. SHOUT OUT TO SATAN, THE ILLUMINATI AND BUILDING 7. DEATH IS COMING AND CANNOT BE STOPPED. I AM SO HUMBLED BY YOUR SUPPORT. I AM IMMORTAL AND THIS SKIN IS TEMPORARY. I NEED THE BLOOD. LOVE TO ANY ONE OUT THERE WHO IS STRUGGLING. THE NONBELIEVERS WILL TASTE FIRE. THE DARKNESS APPROACHES. ACCEPT IT BUT STILL FEAR IT. I AM SO BLESSED. XOXO
It’s obvious that this is a harsh stab at adolescent music tastes and what America does to encourage it, but Bo turns this point into reality by making the tune extremely catchy… Shit.
