I don’t know what it is about this video that is compelling… But there’s something. And it’s not just the celebrity angle. I mean, yeah, it’s interesting that Jonah Hill and Kanye West are playing Connect Four in some random green room… But, it’s not that interesting. In fact, the premise is completely uninteresting if you ask me.
But this is a video of two dudes playing Connect Four, and for some godforsaken reason I watched the whole damn thing. And I laughed! Then I shook my head at myself.
I’ve made some observations and formed some questions about this oddity:
- Why is this interesting? Why did I laugh? Is it actually funny or am I high? (clue: I’m not high. Swear.)
- If this were a video of two non-famous dudes, would we give a shit?
- Why is Kanye so superior to Jonah Hill at Connect Four?
- Did Kanye just sing along to his own hit song to celebrate his victory?
- No, seriously, did Kanye just play his own song!?
- Where is the footage of the Connect Four board releasing, and therefore forfeiting the game?
- Is there anything A-list celebrities can do that won’t eventually become a YouTube hit?
What do you think?
