EBS Induced Trauma: Brain Pops

Okay, I just wanted to share something that traumatized me this evening.

I was switching channels, which is now a new thing for me. I was doing it because my cable company has changed the channel line up...again. So the channel number and channel order is new. That means I've got to learn and remember where the channels I view are again.

I was flipping through the channels when, unfortunately, I saw this:

Basically, a bunch of Korean housewives singing "Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Ole Oak Tree" with two hosts who really shouldn't be singing on TV.

I get it. Sit the family in front of the TV and learn English by learning easy to sing pop songs, but oh...the pain.

Now they're showing clips for the next show and on that they'll be singing Michael Jackson's "Ben". I fucking love that song.

Now I'm scarred for life.

Thanks EBS, Educational Broadcasting System, and Brain Pops.

  1. that just broke my brain.

    this is like the gong show for failed children's entertainers and musical theater castoffs.

    sometimes I need a reminder why I don't have a tv. thanks, eh?

  2. I'm glad I could help keep you focused as to why you don't own a TV ;)

    It was just so BAD, so I had to scar everyone on the net with it. Isn't that nice of me?

  3. So, it looks like EBSe is still alive.

  4. Wow...I'd hate to see what a sing-along by something from 2Live Crew would look like.

    Love the blog.


  5. Nah Fly Bro,

    First, thanks.

    Second, you DON'T want to see that.

    Well, you do, but I certainly don't ;)
