post #16 of 30
the ASK A GAY MAN vid taught me that if you are gay, it is okay to be a closeted racist (i refer to the JNCO blackfacery bamboozledishness)

Obviously he doesn't really know what he's talking about, but I was the most annoyed by the bit in which he makes fun of tight-jeans-wearing "emo" kids in spite of his incredibly stereotypical emo kid haircut.

He has another video in which he implores people to dress nicely when they go to the mall (presumably by popping their collars and sporting low-rise, bootcut jeans...).

On the surface, I LOVE this guy's videos. His sense of humor, personality, style, and bluntness is very much in line with me, which is probably why he appeals to me. Whether he meant to or not, he's tapping into a great mechanism for finally conking a few people over the head with fashion; can you imagine how many terribly dressed teenagers are going to see those videos now that he is featured on the YouTube main page.

When you start to watch more of it and think more about his personality, he's kind of funny. I almost wonder if he is parodying the stereotypes of gay men, not just because he has a line on his MySpace, "shh i'm straight," but also because he occasionally will comment on women being attractive and is ALWAYS doing the stereotypical little gay mannerisms. I don't care if the stereotypes about gays are true or not, but no one conforms to them all the time. Also, he seems pretty well-off...but all that on a Gap salesperson's salary?

i think the irony that this thread is calling attention to is that he is one of those terribly dressed teenagers and his sense of humor, personality, style, and bluntness do not fall in line with his rather bland and MTV inspired fashion style. there are certainly much better dressed people on this forum who are quite respectful of the "trash" in overalls at the mall. the dude is just a cartoon.

I think I'd agree. It's depressing that there are so few men--and women, for that matter--who no longer care about the impression their clothes give BUT at the same time I would not broadcast to the world a comment encouraging people who wear overalls and sweat-shorts to jump out a window. Even in jest, that does strike me as over the top.

i agree. in fact, i can empathize more with the single mother of three who didn't go to college because her family couldn't afford it, works two poor paying jobs, and wears winnie the pooh overalls to the mall because it's all she can afford than i can with fence walking, bottom feeding, insipid college freshman who wear whatever the gap throws at them and then talk about it on youtube.

then again, maybe i should take it at face value, which is just another stupid thing i saw on the internet today, and not get so worked up about it.

I always take my fashion advice from a guy in a pink lacosta polo with the collar popped or with one of those funny, retarded t-shirts that all the kids by from Wal-Mart.

Or guys who spell Lacoste "lacosta" and buy "by".

The video with the gay guy with the popped collar was so unbelievably pointless ...I can't even believed I wasted my life to watch the fag pop his collar over and over again. The gay guy was nice to push Mondonation and Gap Red but he's way too freaking judgemental. Yeah women who wear overalls look stupid, leave them the f*** alone, it's their choice weather or not they want to dress that way.

Ignoring the fact that he works at the GAP (supposedly), he does name drop the GAP very frequently... flashing new products from them in his videos, "I love love love the GAP... it's amazing what you can find there", yada yada.

Is he just another shill? Has GAP caught on to the idea of viral marketing?

Not to be rude, but I also don't have much respect for anyone who refers to gays as "fags."

Yeah, I hear that. This guy isn't gay. He's just a cunt. Do I really need prescriptive fashion advice, stolen forth from holy writ, from the Gap? This is laughable unintentional self parody. It's one thing to be poorly dressed. It's another thing to be utterly without value as a human being. That he is both is just... entertaining. Briefly.

That occurred to me immediately as well. I checked his personal website registration and dug up his address and home phone number, both of which predate youtube by nearly a year and this video by more than two. His home address, assuming it's legitimate, is a real residential address in Paducah. If he is a shill, he's using his real identity in plain view, which would be spectacularly fucking stupid. Having known people who've worked for the Gap and how heavily they emphasize employee indoctrination, it's honestly not too surprising that he pushes Gap products and "humanitarian" efforts so heavily. He may be a viral shill, but the odds are fairly slim. I personally find it more probable that he genuinely believes the Gap is a good place to work and buy clothes.

This guy sucks, but don't be so disrespectful. I'd much rather you censor out "fag" and leave in "fuck" than vice versa.

Everyone's entitled to his or her own opinion, his just happens to be wrong.

I was going to throw in an "opinions are like assholes" line, and mix it with some very crude gay humour, but I don't think I should go there.
