television history

i’ve been trying to explain this sketch to people for years

there is literally no way to explain this sketch it’s just a thing you have to see and even then I’m not sure why it’s so funny

I think it’s because it uses a trope. The dramatic shooting that comes out of nowhere, the sad music overlaying it, the look of horror and betrayal, the slow burn aftermath.

then the betrayal as something unexpected happens to complicate it and compound the tragedy, as the scene repeats itself. And you think that’s how it’ll end, a double knockout.

And then the absurdity just goes up by a magnitude for every additional person, until by the end the trope is just laying on the floor full of bulletholes with MM WHATCHA SAA~AaaAYY thrumming in the background.
