Rifftrax is the center of the universe

June 29th, 2009 by Bill Corbett · 23 Comments

Mark Gormley played by someone very familiar to Rifftrax fans! *

(* And many millions of other people.**)

(**OK, so we’re not the center of the universe. Fine!)

    Weird Al as Gormley! Pop Culture has indeed come full circle.

    Wow. I missed the whole Gormley train first time round. I hafta say he lends hope to lumbering old dolts everywhere…you too can achieve a modicum of fame as an intarweb laughing stock, and maybe Weird Al will play you on TV one day.

    Aw hey lookit! Smuttynose! Old Brown Dog is my very favorite.

    Oh man, I just had a horrible thought. Michael Jackson was 50. Billy Mays was 50. Weird Al will be 50 on Oct 23rd. I hope the celebrity purge is over by then! Be careful out there, Al!

    Weird Al is the most hilarious human being to have ever lived.

    Saw the white nerd video. Loved when he did the vulcan greeting at the end.

    Bill,

    If I were to confess that Rifftrax is indeed the center of my universe would it elicit praise or pity from you?

    “Craigslist,” as a Doors homage

    I think this is another test of our faith, in the series of tests that began with the impossible combination of Donny and Marie, Fred Sanford, and Star Wars. I seem to recall Paul Lynde too, but it’s been a harrowing eleven days, and it’s possible that part was a dream. Anyway that “center of the Universe” thing, I’m not sure if I’m to fight it, agree with it, ignore it…. which? I must have more time to ponder.

    Thanks for the link!

    Funny stuff.

    Withdrawn? Uh, oh.

    Looks like witless minions of G4TV will soon have a price on your head.

    Probably the sum of 50 tokens at Chuck E. Cheese.

    Blasphemer!

    According to the holy book of GOP, Rush Limbaugh is the center of the Universe.

    If only by virtue of sheer body mass.

  • 16 Erica on Jun 30, 2009 at 8:23 am

    Well if that’s true, I want to move to a new Universe.

  • 17 jfe on Jun 30, 2009 at 9:37 am

    That was great, thanks, Weird Al is the best!

    G4 has to hold on to good content. It’s not exactly like they produce gems on a regular basis. Ninja Warrior, this, and then what?

  • 19 CrowTeeRobot on Jun 30, 2009 at 1:16 pm

    And who would I contact about collecting these tokens for said, um, “item”?

  • 20 chrismartindeed on Jun 30, 2009 at 1:35 pm

    Check under the toilet seat in the Mens Room at your neighborhood White Castle.

    (There isn’t any secret packet taped there. I’m just curious if they ever clean it.)

  • 21 Earl Fando on Jul 2, 2009 at 5:49 am

    If the answer to cmi’s question is, “No” those tokens are all yours, pal.

    So the vid’s been pulled from YouTube. However, it’s available on Hulu. Here’s the link

    Funny that a show based on grabbing clips from YouTube and the like (do they even pay anyone??) wont’ let their videos go on YouTube
