Let’s Remember When Quentin Tarantino Slapped A Cameraman Outside A Starbucks To Make For One Of The Best YouTube Videos Of 2008


I’m going to see Once Upon A Time in Hollywood tonight and I’m STOKED. Smoke a little weed, wear my most comfortable pair of undies, treat myself to a large popcorn and butter that bitch until it’s wetter than my girlfriend when she sees DiCaprio and Pitt onscreen together, maybe get a pack of Family Size Jujufruits if I’m feeling extra fucking naughty. Stoked.

Anyway I’ve been muff diving into a Quentin Tarantino rabbit hole to try to learn more about the biggest anomaly on the planet, and it didn’t take long for me to stumble across this video of comedians Chris and Matt D’Elia reminding me of one of the most tensely confusing one minute and eleven seconds of footage ever posted to YouTube.

The incident occurred over a decade ago and the video is titled Tarantino Slaps A Cameraman, but it’s so much more.

What a goddamn rollercoaster of emotions, huh?

For that first 30 seconds I thought Tarantino was going to reach out of my screen and strangle my dog and the next 30 I thought he was going to ask me to go to his bachelor party.

Interesting to note: Tarantino is catching a earful for portraying Bruce Lee like a hack who can’t fight worth shit, but I think that only holds weight if he’s comparing Lee to himself. I mean these moves are lethal, I do this all the time when I’m trying to shoo the swans back into the water at the park.

I am legally allowed to hate on Quentin because I revere him for the content he’s brought into the world. It’s like messing with a good friend, who doesn’t know you and wouldn’t find you interesting.

P.S. For anyone still questioning, we have our verdict: Fame makes you fuckable.

P.P.S. Listen to Chris and Matt D’Elia reacting to the video. Very funny.
