King of Random
A few years ago my brother showed me this hilarious video of some pudgy kid playing the guitar and singing about how everything is gay (The Super Bowl Is Gay). I couldn’t stop laughing! Then a couple of years later I saw The Andy Milonakis Show, and I was like, “WOW! IS THIS REAL? OR AM I TRIPPING?”
Andy Milonakis’ viral videos gained the attention of Jimmy Kimmel, and Milonakis appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live Show between 2003-2004. His own Andy Milonakis Show aired on MTV between 2005-2006. He has since been in feature films, including Waiting, Still Waiting, Two Dudes and a Dream, and Extreme Movie. According to his recent Twitter (05/14/09), Milonakis was just fired from the LOST movie. Bummer.
The Busboy’s Paradise EP was the last official rap release Andy Milonakis appeared on. He has since collaborated with J-Kwon, Kyle Lucas, and Dirt Nasty. Currently you can purchase an MP3 of his latest song, “Let Me Twitter Dat.”
Unfortunately, Andy didn’t seem too keen on interviewing via phone, but I did receive a MySpace message on 03/07/09 with the following answers to some of my questions.
Listen to Andy Milonakis’ sick tracks: myspace.com/andymilonakis
And subscribe to his You Tube channel: youtube.com/andymilonakis
Jaime Winters: You started your comedy career by making funny videos for the Internet. You have since been in major motion pictures, yet you continue to post random silly videos on your You Tube channel. Why?
Andy Milonakis: Your question implies that YouTube is there for people who haven’t already “made it” but that’s not true at all. There are plenty of popular music groups, actors, directors, etc… The internet is taking over and people are starting to watch You Tube more than TV. So to answer your question, I have no idea. It’s fun. I’ve been making stupid videos for the internet for years before You Tube and I’ll be making them years after YouTube, ALL PRAISE OBAMA. CAN WE MAKE INTERNET VIDEOS? YES WE CAN.
JW: Is that your music studio I see in your videos?
AM: Yes, I’m currently making music errrday .
JW: You’ve said you gotta call people out sometimes. Have you had to be blunt as fuck lately?
AM: Yes, actually my bluntness is at an all time high. Pun kinda intended after formation of sentence was completed. Fuck people. There are a lot of sucky people in this world that think they can be an asshole and get away with it…. I like to call them an asshole and perhaps get one of my large friends to break their arms so they realize they can only get away with it sometimes.
JW: What’s your favorite prank pulled?
AM: I guess the pizza guy coming when I was tied up and I had peanut butter on my face because it was my first prank for the show and we had to do it 5 times because every time I dropped the Chinese food on the floor, it was so heavy and greasy that it made a loud thud so I started laughing and ruining the gag every time, it took us hours to get a good one.
JW: Do you consider marijuana a drug?
AM: Marijuana is good for you, it’s like water but it’s dry. The only thing is these Hollywood hookers don’t suck your dick for weed, only coke. DAMN, I wish coke was as good as weed because I’d be getting my D essed a whole lot more.
JW: If you are as into weed as it seems, have you been to Oregon?
AM: No, does Oregon have good weed? I want to play Oregon Trail while smoking weed. YOU KILLED 2 CARIBOU. YUMMMM, I WANT TO EAT CARIBOU. Your wheel axle is broken. DAMN I GUESS I SHOULD CHILL IN My WAGON AND SMOKE MORE WEED.
JW: I know you like space science. What do you think about dark energy?
AM: It’s kinda like, I don’t know It’s 11am, I went to bed 2 hours ago, me and my friends killed 6 bottles last night and my head feels like a Miley Cirus AIDS test.
JW: You post rap songs on MySpace regularly, any forthcoming albums?
AM: Yes, hopefully in about 3 months, then I might plan a tour.
AM: I’m hung over, I deleted the questions I didn’t want to answer, hope that’s enough for you. pEACE
