Funny Story: I was going to start up a new editorial, looking around the internet for some inspiration, when, all of a sudden, I saw probably the greatest title I’ve ever seen for a video: “#FreeTheNipple (Topless Women Campaign)” (by Onision no doubt). Yep! It’s by UhOhBro, an Onision subsidiary. You know what, I’m not going to do any research for this one, I’m just going to jump right in, and see where their psychotic train takes us. Care to join me?
Note: I will be linking to parts of the video as I bring up each point, so you can follow along if you want, or if you can’t access the video, you can read along, and I’ll try to help you understand the best I can.
Before the actual video starts, in the first frame, I’d just like to make it clear that Onision is wearing a fur hat, and a ski mask with a cartoonish, stitched up joker smile drawn on it. I have no words...
(0:05) – Ok, ok, first words spoken by Onision in this episode: #FreeTheNipple. Ok, so far so good, but then, then, then (I wish you could see my face while I’m trying to write this) He has a Elmo hand puppet, as in, Elmo, the one and only host of the closing act of Sesame Street, “Elmo’s World”. This is just too funny! Is this some kind of joke? Well, let’s just see where this goes...
(0:12) – I want you to look at this picture above me, and tell me honestly what you think about it, because every time l look at it, I laugh uncontrollably. What is this video?!?! Whenever I ask myself if Onision’s word can be taken seriously, I’m going to remember this frame, and that he actually said this on camera, and edited those words in with Elmo in the background, and put this up online.
(0:29) – So, he brings up a Twitter page supporting the aforementioned “Free the Nipple Campaign”, then, then, then, he goes into a bit with his puppet about porn on YouTube... what?!?! Next point, please! This is going to be easy article, I don’t even think I need to say anything to tell you how stupid it is, you just already know.
(0:47) – Onision goes off to talk about male nipples, for some reason, calling attention to some stupid guy with tape all over his chest using the hashtag (mentioned previously). “You’re missing the point” he says, but I think Onision’s already off somewhere else entirely.
(1:00) – So Elmo talks about sex... tell you what. This is going to be a short article. I’m going watch the whole video, and tell you if there was a point to it or not, then get back with you... Sound cool?
So here we are, at the end of the video. Was there a point? Yes, but it was pretty well hidden behind all the stupidity. Should women be constantly sexualized? No, but are they? Most of the time, but how is letting them go around with no shirts going to help? Maybe this is something I just don’t get, but hey, that’s just my two cents.
Thanks for reading everyone. As I mentioned before, this is not what I planned on doing today, but once I saw it, just sitting there in the recommended video slot, I just couldn’t resist. There will be a new editorial out tomorrow, and the Cam Reacts I planned for today will be out Thursday, so I look forward to seeing you then, and remember: If you liked the article, please leave a like, or a comment, if you would like to further the discussion. If you’ve become a fan of my work, be sure to keep coming back for more content, and don’t forget to tell your friends!
