For someone who considers herself to have a pretty broad and forgiving sense of humour, I'm getting all punch and no line from Vice cofounder and so-called comedian Gavin McInnes, who simulated a wrestling match with his 10 month old in a video entitled "How to Fight a Baby."
It's all good clean fun, mostly. There is some old-fashioned tickling going on, yet some of the rough-housing is a bit worrisome, as it involves flipping an actual BABY.
"You've got to be more careful," wrote a commenter on YouTube. "You can accidentally hurt the baby throwing him around like that."
Aside from any safety concerns, the video smacks of (adult) desperation and wholly lacks charm, but that could just be me having a sense of humour fail.
For some reason McInnes is into mixing kids and aggression for laughs. According to an article in the Huffington Post, an earlier video, also titled "How To Fight," depicted the dad battling it out with his toddler daughter, referred to as "the thug."
Not surprisingly McInnes doesn't care if his video "makes people mad or not.” In fact, I'm willing to wager that's exactly what he wants, because publicity is publicity, after all. Methinks it's time for some new material, bud.
What do you think of the video? Is McInnes funny?
