I’ve reached out to both Dr Pepper and Comedy Central regarding the “Dr Pep-er” situation, but so far I’ve heard nothing back. Granted, I only e-mailed Comedy Central about five minutes ago, but Dr P’s had since Friday to phone me back with an explanation. Guess they needed the entire weekend to cook up an elaborate cover story for what is clearly a Project Blue Book-style conspiracy.
Stay tuned, pop junkies. This investigation might culminate in an ambush outside the Eugene O’Neill Theater where Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s immensely popular Book of Mormon is playing. I’ll force those rich sons of carpenters to swear on a Bible they aren’t being paid by Dr Pepper (or get punched trying)!
At least not based on this clip that leaked a couple days (weeks?) ago.
“Har har, we’re on a new network.” I hate to say this, but “Family Guy” did that yarn better. Also, is it just me, or does the animation in this clip not look very fluid? Like they kinda half-assed it?
Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still watch the quote-unquote triumphant return of “Futurama” tonight at 10, because the original seasons are some of my favorite entertainment ever. I’m willing to give it a chance. Let’s face it, though: those DVD movie were iffy at best, and can they really take the Leela / Fry romance any further? After that whole “Fry shaves his head and hangs out with whales and becomes Leela’s alternate lover” plot line, I kinda stopped giving a fig.
Alls I’m sayin’ is there better be some motherfuckin’ Slurms McKenzie up in these new episodes. Whimmy wham wham wozzle!
