But throw in someone getting hit in the balls and I’m sold

I saw this Visa commercial recently and, watching blank-faced as a portly man danced goofily, but not remotely entertainingly in a hotel room, I wondered if people really still think that it’s inherently funny to see fat people dance.

Then, while I was on the YouTube enjoying the comedy stylings of my friend Joe Minolfi at Carolines — funny stuff — I got distracted by one of the “related” video suggestions on the right side of the page.

This video, called My Humps, posted by user fatboygetdown, is clearly just two minutes and thirty-five seconds of a fat boy getting down (to the Black Eyed Peas). Why would I want to see this? Better question: Why have over one million one hundred and ninety thousand people watched it?

Oh, right, because people really still think that it’s inherently funny to see fat people dance. Sigh.

  1. It’s not that we think it’s funny. It is funny. Even watching them try to run to make a light is funny. Swear to me that you don’t have to stifle a smile.
