How refreshing it was to stumble across the YouTube page of a one Elizabeth Zephyrine McDonough. Led there by her F the Internet, and made to laugh by that perfect ode to anti-comedy, I couldn’t help but probe further. Why am I writing like Melville? Good question, fuck this. Less pretentiously put, McDonough’s digitized middle finger to Cyber Monday takes a pretty hackneyed “throw back” form and elicits enough guffaws to send one down a (reasonably short) wormhole of noteworthy stuff. What lead me down said hole of worms? Performance. Perfect performance. That’s it, and that’s a lot.
