Celebrities can be the worst, from their pretentious self-involvement, to their trendy pseudo-religions, to their baseless restraining orders when you were just peering in their bathroom window because you thought you saw a spiderweb that looked like Jesus, okay? Putting celebs in their place: Not Cool, Celebrities.
Conceived by a pair of writers (including a Chi native) during an inebriated night in Vegas, NCC's meme-style, occasionally fact-based jabs at the wealthy elitism of famous folk take them down a peg, although even the NFL's New York teams don't pay their kickers THAT much. A sweet sampling:
My middle name was Steve before I got rich: Not cool, Lou Diamond Phillips.
I adopt children and call them "rescues": Not cool, Madonna.
I rode a bike once. It felt like poor people: Not cool, Harrison Ford.
I wrote a book called If I Did It. [I Did It].: Not cool, O.J. Simpson.
I bought a house in New Orleans. Like, ironically: Not cool, Brad Pitt.
They're adding more celebs by the day, including Ashton Kutcher, Tupac, and Jennifer Lopez, but no Gwen Stefani yet, which is just as well after you got busted trying to walk into her spiderwebs.
