Ruining the movies on FML Friday

Hello regular Unknown Studio readers, my name is Jay. You may recognize me from such podcast episodes as last Season’s “Oscar, meet Jay n’ J.”, Season 2’s “Summer blockbusters”, or my own podcast Jay n’ J. I am writing to you today to showcase what I am proudly calling GIF Theater.

You see, occasionally on Twitter I post a more sophisticated version of a #FollowFriday (or #FF) I like to call #GIFriday. It’s usually a clever tweet followed by a fun or mocking animated GIF. At they same time the wonderful and talented Adam Rozenhart usually posts these wonderful FML Fridays. So, being the magical and mysterious human being that I am, I thought “why not combined the two!” And thus GIF Theater was born.

Behold it in all it’s glory!

Theatrics in the theatre

Today, my family and I went to the movie theater. There weren’t enough free seats near the front, so I sat a few rows back with my grandpa. He kept throwing our snacks at my parents’ heads all through the movie. He claimed he’d been asleep the whole time, and I’m now grounded. FML

F your seemingly boring L? For reals? Your Grandpa sounds hilarious! I mean, if this is a first time offense for him then I can understand being confused, but Fing your so called L? I don’t think so. And if it wasn’t the first time he’s done something like this then you should have joined in! If you knew you were going to get in trouble anyways, why don’t take some stress out on your parents? I mean I don’t really condone being disruptive at theatres, but it sounds like this was a particularly boring movie if your cool Grandpa was that bored at it. Seriously though:

Lonely mobile phone sadness

Today, I didn’t even bother to turn my cellphone off in a movie theater because I knew no one would text me or call. FML

Seriously, I think some of you people need to re-evaluate your so called Ls. You get to go to a movie! Uninterrupted! You know how hard that is for some people. I see it all the time at the theatre. People getting (and answering) texts. People calling each other. Be greatful. Sure it’s lonely, but the cinematic experience you’re going to enjoy will be worth it. Unless you’re REALLY lonely:

Today, I paid 11 dollars to see the new Wolverine movie. I arrived an hour early and waited patiently for the movie to start. 3 minutes before it began, a drunk guy stumbled in and took the last empty seat in the theater… next to me. He talked to me the whole movie. FML

Sorry FMLer, this one on you. You went to go see The Wolverine? An hour early? Did you not pay attention to the internet at all? It got nothing but horrible reviews. And I’m not going to lie, the drunk guy talking you the whole time was probably a better experience than watching the movie. So if anything you should be THANKFUL. Thank you drunk guy for saving this poor FMLer from the crap hole that was The Wolverine.
