I hate April Fools Day. Hate it. It’s a day filled with weak attempts at elementary school shenanigans and absolutely zero pay off. All it accomplishes is annoyances and aggravations. It should be banned alongside The Hills, Madonna, and the Sham-Wow guy.
Now that I’ve vented, I must make mention of one of these horribly useless pranks on Adult Swim’s late-night lineup.
Adult Swim usually plays a couple of episodes of Family Guy at 3:00 and 3:30AM. Being a big fan, most nights I’ll throw it on and watch, especially because at that time of night, there’s very rarely anything else on. Last night when I changed it over to watch, it appeared that there was some kind of soap opera on. This confused and scared me. After a few minutes, the Adult Swim logo appeared at the bottom, so I knew mischief was being had. After a few more minutes, it was made known that I was watching something called The Room.
Now, when it comes to the description “Worst Movie Ever,” it’s something that’s used very liberally and very rarely does it hold any water. As I continued watching this odd film, still confused at Adult Swim’s logic, I quickly realized that it may indeed actually be THE worst movie ever made. As absurd as it sounds, though, I just couldn’t stop watching! The unbelievable amounts of horrid material that I was witnessing demanded that I keep watching, that I keep taking it all in. I’ve never once felt so vulnerable in my entire life.
