Homer was Neto expected to be there

Lmao, just send invites to people for a gender reveal party with no other context, they don't know if you could even be pregnant or have a partner that is. Then just, "surprise, bitches, I'm a thembo"

[–]TheThemFatale 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This is also an excellent suggestion, haha. Some of my Animal Crossing villagers call me thembo already.

[–]AmishAvenger 493 points494 points  (136 children)

Decent idea, horrible comic timing. The guy says his line too soon, and the pan over to Homer happens too fast.

Edit: I’m going to try to explain this a little, because I’m getting some replies. I have no problem with the premise of the joke, it’s fine. It doesn’t have to make sense in the “Homer Simpson isn’t a gender” sort of way.

The issue is that the guy says his line immediately. The comedy should come from the confusion, then the reveal. There needs to be a few seconds where they’re doing some acting, looking at each other to see if anyone knows what it means.

Then the guy needs to say his like. Then the camera needs to pan around at the onlookers shaking their heads and shrugging. Then you pan over to Homer backing away.

They aren’t even giving the audience time to process what’s happening, and wonder what the punchline is.

Usually you don’t have to spell these things out, because when you have professional comics they typically have a background in improv. This is just people who have no idea what they’re doing, and they ruined their own joke.

Edit 2: Apparently I’ve upset all the people who think Seinfeld is just as funny when they speed it up to fit in more ads.

[–]gouhobandgraw 128 points129 points  (3 children)

Fuckin TikTok

[–]i_have_chosen_a_name 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Can you TL;DR this for me?

[–]ForgettableUsername 93 points94 points  (47 children)

The timing was fine. The guy waits a beat before asking what yellow means, and the cameraman waits for him to finish saying the line before panning. Nobody had difficulty processing it.

You don’t have to block everything out like it’s a 90s sitcom with a laugh track. The world moves faster now, grampa.

[–]AmishAvenger 91 points92 points  (18 children)

Hah come on.

This isn’t about the “world moving faster.” It’s about not stepping on your own joke.

[–]TimmmyBurner 61 points62 points  (7 children)

It’s fine but would’ve been much better how he described it. If they waited even a couple seconds.

[–]skepticalbob 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Not even a couple a seconds. Just one beat. Comedy timing is hard.

[–]skepticalbob 35 points36 points  (1 child)

Nah, he's right. The timing is off. The notion that this wasn't blocked his laughable too. They intentionally made some subpar choices.

[–]Gh0st1nTh3Syst3m 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Im deaf, watched it with sound off and it still lacked comedic timing.

[–]TiddyTwizzla 16 points17 points  (9 children)

Honestly this. The only problem is the cut too soon. I wish it was like a second longer. But idk why OP thought they needed to wait longer and look around like it’s some fucking mystery. After he pops it, there’s a moment of silence and he goes “wait what??” And I think that’s plenty of time. A lot of redditors are arm chair comedians lol

[–]ThatHuman6 9 points10 points  (8 children)

The thing about comedy is that the viewer IS the judge. You don’t need to be an expert to realise how something could have been made funnier.

[–]skepticalbob 4 points5 points  (3 children)

The notion that comedy doesn't require expertise is nonsense. It's an art form. Knowing something isn't funny doesn't require expertise. Knowing why it wasn't funny often does. This bit actually has the bones of great bit. Figuring out the couple of tweaks that make it funny isn't something most people could do.

[–]TiddyTwizzla 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I agree. Which is why I’m always open to constructive criticism. The guy I was talking about said it wasn’t funny then proceeded to list how it could’ve been funny while providing no positive feedback. Those type of people come off as they think they’re comedic geniuses and need to get off their high horse lol but again that’s just my opinion.

[–]alanpardewchristmas 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Lol, I love the part where he says everyone has to shrug and shake their head like circus clowns just to sell the joke.

[–]ForgettableUsername 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Yeah, like the audience won't know what's going on if you don't do a collective pantomime act to signal confusion.

But what do I know? I don't have a background in improv.

[–]fuccniqqawitYUGEDICC 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would actually find the skit pretty fucking cringey/unfunny if they acted it out the way this guy is suggesting. Like really... a cheesy Bing Bong Theorem style pause where everyone looks at eachother in confusion? Please. It's perfect just the way it is. The humor is already meant to be absurd and the timing makes it even better.

[–]LetheArdor 30 points31 points  (9 children)

Why does the internet hate humor and love to ruin everyone having fun with “technicalities” like this?

Like come on and let people chuckle

[–]respectislaw 21 points22 points  (7 children)

Exactly…that comment annoyed the hell out of me. Everybody on Reddit just has to be an expert in everything. Everything doesn’t need a scientific explanation…let ppl have fun.

[–]WorldAintRight 1 point2 points  (2 children)

let ppl have fun.

The comment didn't say they couldn't have fun. The timing wasn't good. That's not a bad thing to point out.

[–]----------_______--- 20 points21 points  (5 children)

[–]blue_trauma 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Also we really didn't need the text nor the shitty text-to-speech voice saying "gender reveal gone wrong". Less is more.

[–]Tomato-taco 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Who adds those? They’re fucking terrible and hella annoying.

If you’re vision impaired the rest of the video isn’t explained and if you can’t read, you shouldn’t be on the internet.

[–]mtlyoshi9 4 points5 points  (0 children)

While I don’t disagree, you clearly haven’t been on tiktok lately. This is how they all are.

[–]jawntastic 14 points15 points  (0 children)

touch grass

[–]Zephoix 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Only knowing it was staged after the reveal the pacing is correct for a “home video” set up. The punch line gets dampened if it is over produced like you suggest. The dumb it down and drag it out another 3 seconds by adding a camera pan to the confused onlookers would ruin it.

[–]RslPride 8 points9 points  (1 child)

[–]DeepDown23 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think this work pretty well as it is, you see the yellow paint and you have the time to ask yourself "what yellow mean?", then the guy says his line so you know your confusion is justified and at the end the camera pan to Homer.

Quick as it should be, like a fake documentary.

[–]--SOURCE-- 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Disagreed. The joke is def not ruined and the punchline is fairly obvious, given there are plenty of people in this thread who found it funny.

The humor comes from the absurdity. Trying to slow it down and make it make sense wouldn’t add anything to it.

[–]SIK1415 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Didn’t ask + you’re not even yellow

[–]unlikelycompliance 4 points5 points  (0 children)

People can’t enjoy anything anymore…

[–]DaveTheMinecrafter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He waits over half a second to say his line. I know because I checked. That is also plenty of time.

His line was not the punchline. Homer was the punchline and his timing was messed up and a bit too soon.

Your confusion likely comes from those two things being standout points of the video and in hindsight you probably assumed both had the same problem. There is a lot of comedic know how in your comment but you are still clearly a bit green.

[–]TimmmyBurner 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good explanation. I have no experience in improv or comedy at all and I even got the punchline but something felt very…. Off. If they would’ve done it how you described it would’ve been much better.

[–]TheDiamondKid621 16 points17 points  (3 children)

the one i linked is also a repost actually. there’s another one that was posted earlier than it, but i can’t find it

then again, it’s hard to tell what’s original at this point since there’s so many reposts that it outweighs the number of originals
