I wonder if the person who ripped Blake Boston’s picture from Myspace and turned him into an internet meme had any idea that the dude under the iconic hat was actually, legitimately, a hilarious character.
Surely they must by now. Scumbag Steve is one of the most ubiquitous image macros of our time! And while he may have hated it at first, being a meme seems to be working out well for Boston.
I hate to break it to y’all, but the real Scumbag Steve is actually a nice guy. He’s Cool, funny, polite… Not a scumbag at all.
Everybody at ROFLcon was loving him, myself included. THAT ACCENT kills me. SCAHF!
Don’t be disillusioned though, kittens. Scumbag Steve is about so much more than one photograph of one guy! The face of the meme may be Blake’s, but the humour stems from what we think about the scumbags in our own lives.
BWAHAHAH! I did that, man. I did that.
Annnnd blogging of comedic YouTube rap videos, I’ve been meaning to post this Krispy Kreme video for a few weeks now. I may have included it in a linklist already, but whatever. It’s good enough to blog twice.
The YouTube comments on that one are golden. Aren’t they always? Here’s a gem I got on an old video today:
I HAVE 400 HOUSES.
This… is exactly what it looks like: Antoine Dodson, Chuck Testa, Scumbag Steve, Double Rainbow Guy, Copper Cab and a few more accidental internet celebrities dancing on stage at a bar in Cambridge, Mass.
It’s been real, ROFLcon. F’real.
