Gersh Kuntzman

I had low expectations for this video, but it was actually hilarious:

hahaha ok ok, this video was definitely worth it.  I’m always skeptical because usually after something becomes sort of a “meme”, it just gets absolutely beaten to death and I end up wading through dozens of videos that are all basically the same.

Born-To-FeelIf you’re not familiar with what this video is a parody of, read this Gersh Kuntzman article on how firing a horrifying AR-15 for the first time basically irreversibly destroyed his soul.

Thoughts?

Did his nose smash into a million bloody pieces?  Watch to find out:

thinking-facehaha naturally his nose was fine.  No bruise, not broken as that dramatic diva of a journalist Gersh Kuntzman would claim happens when you fire such a horrifying beast of a firearm.

1.3M views on the above video means it’s making some rounds haha.   Naturally, many of the comments are so far beyond retarded I wonder how some of the people making them can even breathe and type at the same time without some serious concentration on both.

Thoughts?

Gersh-Kuntzman-AR15

Oh wow, this is hilarious.  But also quite sad since the “journalist” Gersh Kuntzman was dead serious.  Here’s a couple highlights:

It felt to me like a bazooka — and sounded like a cannon.

The recoil bruised my shoulder, which can happen if you don’t know what you’re doing. The brass shell casings disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The explosions — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary form of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable.

You can read the full article and the followup article where he doubled down.

LOL who let this slide?  I’m not going to call him names, because I really don’t care if he likes guns or the AR-15 specifically.  I can’t imagine how an AR-15 could upset him so much though, and actually “bruise” his shoulder.  Are we talking about the same gun here?  Sounds like he thought he could write a dramatic article and be hailed as a hero by those who thinks AR-15s should be arbitrarily banned.  Writing articles with incorrect information or having a strong opinion either way is genius as far as pageview maximization strategies go.  Look at the number of facebook shares alone on both those articles – 133474 on the first and 18433 on the second.  It’s pretty safe to say that overall reach of that article is well into the millions of people in a very short amount of time.  That means big ad money.  I’m sure NY Daily News is patting him on the back right now and readying an article on abortion, religion, and maybe a combination of all those with guns in the mix.

Oh and you need to check this out.  My dude Drew Hopkins off IG posted this related video haha:
