Then they actually include David's scat footage. In an interview, David says that people will be able to say they heard "every damn question up in that flow" and that they understand him and see his perspective, and that's who he's reaching. Wow, he really doesn't know what an ass he is making out of himself, does he? In an interview, Danny says that they showed David with his shirt off, and then David standing next to nice cars that don't belong to him, and what they had was "a bad rap video." Danny nailed it so perfectly that I need to award him another ten points. This footage looks exactly like a bad rap video, or actually like a bad Boyz II Men video. At one point, David actually pulls out a cell phone and pretends to talk on it, all while wearing no shirt. He really has no shame, does he? The footage ends and David in the studio says, "Absolutely tight! We'll be right back." If I were sitting at home and that crap came on the air, I would either flip the channel immediately, or more likely, call all my friends and tell them to turn to channel seventy-seven because you would not believe the bunch of losers that were on television.
Now it's sixteen minutes into the show and Melissa is saying that the people of New Orleans are concerned about issues like cleanliness, the education system, and police brutality. She says that they talked to a lady in a clock shop, and Danny gives the cue so that the footage of the lady in the clock shop comes up. I think we are supposed to surmise that things are going pretty well at this point.
Now it's twenty-one minutes into the show and Matt is talking about corruption, and he says it's not just police but also in businesses, and that some people think that corruption festers here in New Orleans. Wow. If I lived in New Orleans and I turned on my television and saw this group of idiots talking trash about my city, even if it were true, I would be pissed. It would have been so much more effective there to show a clip of a New Orleans resident saying that corruption festers in New Orleans. Look at me, I'm all Holly Hunter in Broadcast News all of a sudden. Next thing you know, Joan Cusack is going to slide under a file cabinet drawer to deliver me a videotape just in time. I'll be waiting, Joanie!
Now it's twenty-five minutes into the show and David is saying that alcohol is a "pressing issue" and that it's the "backbone of New Orleans" and once again, I don't know that it's a good idea to trash the city hosting you. Kelley says that the "number-one things bringing tourists into town is alcohol and food." I'll cut her some slack on the grammar because it's the end of the show and she was probably just relieved that David didn't take his shirt off or start scatting again. Danny is giving commands in the control room, and Melissa wraps things up. They all start yelling at the camera, which is scary. Danny counts down to the end of the show and they all cheer. In an interview, David says, "Can you say 'success'? Oh, man, it felt good." In an interview, Melissa says that for all the stressing and arguing, they pulled it off.
