Burning Man summed up in a hilarious 4 mins
Poking fun at Burning Man always makes for a good laugh. A comedian known as Kevin Oeser took a stab at answering the question of “How was burning man?” in a YouTube skit.
In the Burning Man skit, the guy gets home from the dusty festival and his girlfriend then asks him how it all was. He goes on to deliver a passionate lecture on the values and beauty of Burning Man. And, not just that, he also makes sure to scoff at his girlfriend’s unknowing and unenlightened view on what Burning Man is all about. He does this, fully aware of the fact that she has never been.
He doesn’t care though. He is simply too busy basking in the afterglow of his experience. In fact, he reintroduces himself to her, informing her that the man who left for the festival is not the same man that has returned.
She goes on to chirp in with other lame questions such as “did you have fun” and “did you do lots of drugs”?
He tries to enlighten her with the ramblings of someone fresh off the burn train, feeling fired up enough to change the world.
“Fun is what you have down at the water park, eating cheese burgers and playing grab ass. The burn is the entire spectrum of human experience, concentrated nothing short of literal fucking magic. I wanted a popsicle at one point and you know what happened? One appeared, a popsicle.” He says
The girlfriend then makes the grave mistake of saying that Burning Man sounds like Coachella.
This comparison really gets him going…
“What did you say? Ooooh ooooh. Comparing the burn to a corporate suck off like Bro-chella is like comparing jello to ice hockey. One is like a Coldplay concert in a field and the other one is like a metamorphosis of uh uh uh.” He trails off again as he struggles to think of what might come after the word metamorphosis
And then out of the blue he reveals…
“This pill completely reinvents your personality.”
