    What Would Brian Boitano Do?

    Ladies and Gentlement of this message board --

    I apologize for posting the "What Would Brian Boitano Do" thread.
    I scanned through just the first three paragraphs, and it sounded like a cute little ditty about the great Brian Boitano.

    However -- after reading the entire "poem", I clearly saw that the author got off on a rather nasty tangent, with some off-color words, etc. Obviously, this kind of stuff does not belong on this very nice message board.

    I do not advocate this kind of junk. Please disregard the original post.

    Thanks!

    SkateFan4Life,

    I take it you are not familiar with 'South Park'. This song is from the movie 'South Park-Bigger, Longer, Uncut'. I think Brian Boitano got a kick out of this song - so much that he did a number to it one year in his Holiday Spectacular show. 'South Park' (both the show on Comedy Central and the movie) is definitely for adults and not for everyone - I just happen to love its irreverance.

    On another note: another song from this movie - 'Blame Canada' - was actually nominted for an Oscar for Best Song.

    I love this song, too. I think it's a great compliment to Brian, actually. I
    wish I'd been able to see him skate to it.

    I thought it was funny, but I'm not a *fan* of SP so I've never heard it... the title was enough for me to laugh LOL

    Blame Canada... Robin Williams performed it on the Oscar stage that year, didn't he?

    It was a riot in the movie.

    After the big power outage last week, Canada was pointing the finger at the US, and the US was pointing the finger at Canada. CNN went so far as to play "Blame Canada" on air.

    Didn't Brian actually skate to it at one of his shows? The other skaters dressed up like Cartman & Co. and the Brian came skating out triumphantly in his Team USA jacket.

    It was pretty hilarious.

    I've always assumed that the obsequious behaviour towards Brian Boitano in that movie has something to do with him beating out Brian Orser for the gold in 1988, thus thwarting a Canadian victory. Why the cast doesn't feel the same way about Scott Hamilton for his perfomance in 1984 is anyone's guess.

    That's kind of odd. I guess CNN doesn't get the point of the song. Or what the Canadian creators of South Park were implying.

    When Brian used this song in his special, the reporters asked him, "But Brian, don't you know that this song is making fun of you?"

    Brian answered, "Hey, I'm just glad that somebody thinks I'm famous enough to make fun of!"

    Actually, though, I think it's making fun of the phrase WWJD (What would Jesus do?) I don't know how Brian Boitano got into the mix.

    Like Idle Racer, I always thought that Brian was a Hero to the South Parkers for beating a Canadian in a well publicized battle. It would be hard to get that impressed by Hamilton since his LP was not as good as Orser's.
