I’m Never Going to Norway (or WTF was that?)
I’ve seen some disturbing things in my life. I remember being in the backseat of the car as a child on Christmas, where a car had gone off the interstate and flipped a few times. Somehow, I was watching when Earnhardt crashed and died (which means I wasn’t at my house or I wouldn’t have seen it). I’ve seen the “Faces of Death” movies — which are more disturbing for their cheesiness than anything else. I remember watching the original (crack loving) LT mangle Joe Theismann. My mom watched Regis and Kathy Lee when I was growing up, which was enormously troubling at multiple levels. Lots of things that are permanently burnt into your consciousness. But nothing could have prepared me for this video. Nothing.
Maybe I only speak for myself, but I have many memories that have been permanently altered. I’ll never watch Top Gun with the same reverence again. Ever.
