No One Can Ranch The Human Serviette
Hitting play on the Nardwuar interview with Eric Andre posted today, we immediately assumed it would be a match made in Heaven. Andre, the anti-comedy godson of Tim & Eric who recently found himself trending online for softly storming an Alex Jones rally outside the RNC, is a noted music nerd. He often hosts underground-ish artists such as Killer Mike, Mac Demarco, and Flying Lotus as the closers on his unlikely hit Adult Swim "show" The Eric Andre Show. For some reason, I assumed that the pairing of Nardwuar and Andre, two oft-misunderstood geniuses, would yield excellent educational material as well as the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Alas, as was learned within the first couple minutes of the video, not all pairings are made to be, with Andre attempting to disrupt the Nardwuar flow at all turns of the interaction. As is the case with the Canadian interview savant, Nardwuar was unbreakable, failing to take the bait that the ranch-master threw at him. At around 9:30, Nardwuar actually out Eric-Andre's Eric Andre, asking the comedian, "You love cock, don't you?" before gifting him with a strange penis shaped toy called the 'Merry Monk.' Around this time of the interview, Andre the agitator appears slightly agitated, telling Nardwuar he's gotta leave for his sound check. He sticks around a couple extra minutes, but one gets the impression that Mr. Andre had finally met his match. On this day in late August, the Internet has given us a battle of historical porportions, and all would be well served to consume said content.
