Nick & Myke’s #2: The Apocalypse Will Be Sponsored

Nick & Myke’s #2: The Apocalypse Will Be Sponsored

Myke Johns and Nick Tecosky are the producers of WRITE CLUB Atlanta. In an ill-conceived bid to remain hip and relevant and also to vent their anger and bile at people who actually are hip and relevant, they have devoted themselves to reviewing the #2 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

For the week of February 3rd, the #2 hit on the Billboard charts is:

MYKE

I’m sure there are a lot of pop songs about things falling down, but for some reason the first one that comes to mind is Fergie’s “London Bridge.” The only thing I remember from that song is a really loud drum beat and a million autotuned Fergies shouting about their London Bridges going down whenever I come around, wondering why that was, and suggesting through context that she rather liked it. That’s all I remember: drums, voice and that stupid chorus forever seared into my memory, probably in place of some cherished childhood memory.

In which Jason and comedian Jake Head discuss the trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man.

J: Welcome to this review of The Amazing Spider-Man trailer, Jake. Just right off the bat, does he seem that amazing? I think he’s coasting on the ability to shoot webs out of his hands. Or his wrist or butt. I don’t know where the webs come from. Glands, maybe? Possibly his heart or tear ducts. That would be something, wouldn’t it? If all that spider webbing was just the tears of a man. A spider-man. He doesn’t seem that sad. Don’t be fooled, criminals! If you were considering giving up crime because you thought your thievery or murder or whatever had brought a spider-man to tears, don’t be hasty. I mean, be hasty with your crime, because breaking the law is not something you can take your time with. Get in and get out, I say. But don’t turn your back on lawlessness. Emotionally, Spider-man is fine. He clearly thinks he’s amazing.
