Insane Clown Posse Release the Infomercial for 2013's Gathering of the Juggalos
Many festivals create introduction videos. They're always boring, with one exception: the annual infomercial for Gathering Of The Juggalos, through which Insane Clown Posse introduce their chthonic circus with a flamboyant collage of horrorcore rappers, cartoonish gore and Juggalette flesh. The infomercials always feature some kind of narrative conceit—this go-round, Insane Clown Posse don wigs, suits and the personas of Guy Corfey and Fats Pepper to host a talk show called Weekly Freekly Weekly on "Hatchet Action News", dedicated to "slapping the news upside your bitch-ass." They don't disappoint. Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope are joined by the "voice ninja," which gravel-throated, disembodied narration-bot provides the most viscerally abstract use of language so far this year when it informs attendees of Slick Chik's oil wrestling tent that they're "guaranteed to see wet slippery nipple buttons poppin' out of titty bras." Guy Corfey comes in close second with his labyrinthine explication of sludge-metal outfit Soulfly: "They are soulful, they can't fly, but nonetheless they are still called Soulfly because the vocals fly through the air, and they are full of soul. Very soulful. Very, very soulful." Honorable mention to Fats Pepper for his pronunciation of Brotha Lynch Hung's last name as "Ung" and Corfey's summation of the Kottonmouth Kings as "weed smoking, pot toking, and hash dwizzling." My takeaway? The less a subculture cares about taste, syntax or production values, the more fun I estimate it's members will have this summer.
