Trapped in the Closet

No...not talking about Slyde. Although he still refuses to come out. Who is he foolin'?

I'm talking about R. Kelly and his opus, his Hip-Hopera...Trapped in the Closet. I know I'm a few years late in talking about it. It was released some time in 2005, but IFC has been playing it late at night in recent weeks and I have to tell you...it is brilliant!

I don't know much about R. Kelly besides claims that he is a pedophile and he likes to piss on women. His music sucks...that I know. But the man, whatever his faults are, is a comic genius.

Case in point. Watch the following chapter (there are 12 or more of them) and you decide. Brilliant or the end of civilization as we know it. I'm not quite sure. The action picks up after a short intro by some British dude. Enjoy!



My favorite part, besides the midget revelation at the end, is when the cop repeatedly asks her to move. Move. No. Move. No. Bitch move! She moved! I don't think Stanley Kubrick could have filmed that scene any better.

By the way, the midget turns out to be named Big Man...because he's blessed. You know...down there. He also shits himself and passes out a few times. Good times.

Weird Al actually did a 10-minute long parody called "Trapped in the Drive-Thru" that was hilarious.

Avi - I remember that, but I'm not sure this thing even NEEDS a parody. Works that way on its own.

The British dude is Charlie Brooker, he's a genius. A very, very funny man, who does TV reviews/comments in The Guardian. Here's a sample.

badger - Thanks! I hated to be so ambigious, but I had never heard of him before.

This may just be the Clockwork Orange of the new generation. The new confused generation.

maybe I can get through that film after getting through one of those good-looking Michter's jugs down there.

Lotus - the crazy gun-toting generation.

Limpy - they do look tasty. Alas, no more.

Slyde - no rick-rolling here. It's one of the chapters from the "Trapped in the Closet" video/movie/opera. You will definitely get a kick out of it.
