The infamous OH SHIT! challenge, (the only challenge, that in the history of Inspirado has never been picked) is one show away from, possibly, seeing its day. Brick rejoiced last night as they defeated the almighty Simpson, Barker & Jones LLC in what some may call the “milkiest” Inspirado ever. It all started with the trash talk, Chris Simpson pulled up a Facebook post that his mother left him, calling for him to beat Brick. Brick team captain, Jamaal Sedayo, countered by saying, “mmmm”…tell her I say hello. OH SHIT! That was some MOTHER- FUDGIN’ trash talk!
Simpson, Barker & Jones LLC went first and chose a dumb challenge and received Sit, Stand, Breast-feed; at all times someone needed to be either sitting, standing or breast-feeding. From this birthed a number of breast oriented scenes- interviews, school meetings, and friendly neighborhood gatherings. One of the highlights was probably the 7 foot tall breast-feeding 7 year old who got all the (freakish) nutrients he needed from his mothers milk. Another highlight was the tense trade of the coveted “silver plated nipple” for a lifetime subscription of fishing magazines (pretty great trade). The rest of the piece was filled in with a breast feeding mongoose, bowls of buffalo milk and the office where “every employee sucks on a tit for an hour a day”. At the end, there wasn’t a person in the audience who wasn’t craving a glass of milk.
In their 7th week on the Inspirado stage, Brick chose a stylistic challenge and received Call Now!; they had to perform a piece in the style of a telethon fundraiser. A frustrated produced did his best to direct a celebrity filled show to raise money for aids. Adam Sandler and Winona Ryder hosted the evening with an ASL assistant who was really a frat guy who was dared to show his ass on TV (he did). The piece was filled with video montages with poignant messages about aids; “things are really bad when you get aids”, “don’t touch things if they have aids on them” and “block-building is possible when you have aids”. We were graced by Will Smith, Laurence Fishburne and Jada Pinkett-Smith. High points of the show were a Will Smith action montage, a Mr. Deeds action montage (topped with an Opera Man impression) and a 2 minute stand up set about 90’s bands, delivered by the ASL assistant. In the end, it would be Warren Buffet (who pledged $50,000) and Brick who were left standing at the top.
With the seventh week in the bag, one has to wonder, who will stop Brick from their undefeated run on the Inspirado stage? The only answer is…DOUBLE DATE. This 4 person indie powerhouse is not only hilarious, but they stand to unseat the 7 time Inspirado champions with ease. Will the champions be de-throned? Will Brick continue on to the OH SHIT! challenge? There is only one way to find out! Thursday, 11pm at INNNNSSSPPPPIIIIRRADDDDDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
