If you saw “Superbowl” in the headline and thought, “Why is this nerdy?” check out one of the many fake monikers included in the skit, above. Yes, it’s a newer version of the running gag where they make fun of weird football player names and the approximate geographic regions of the country such specific weirdness is likely to come from. And it cracks me up every time, even though I barely know a damn thing about football besides touchdowns. (Edit: which is why I didn’t initially know the sketch above features actual football players.)
Comedy Central should have actually run this at half-time; I’d watch it over puppies or Katy Perry.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
