We’ll have to assume that you’re at least vaguely aware of the hurly-burly surrounding the time slot conflict between Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien.
Nope? Have you been living under a rock? An Internet rock?
Anyway. Here’s the lowdown, in 2 minutes of rad Taiwanese animation (this neat little segment was originally produced for something called Apple Action News, shown here with the English translation):
They nailed one thing–everyone quickly jumped on the O’Brien bandwagon (Jen and I cheered watching Jimmy Kimmel tear Leno apart on his own show last week). Not just because Leno is criminally unfunny, not just because–though he’s getting a slow start on The Tonight Show–O’Brien is a beloved underdog. The whole idea of takebacks is totally DICK–it ain’t cool on the playground, it ain’t cool on TV.
And check it out: Asians are totally rallying for Team CoCo! Heck, we knew Intern Jasmine on board, but it’s inspiring to see that our friend Phil at Angry Asian Man has gotten, well, pretty angry about the topic. He spoke out about it, joined by cutie-utie-utie pie actors Karin Anna Cheung and Eddie Kim, as well as… RUFIO! Peep the video:
Why break up a united front? LET’S RALLY!!
RUFI-O! RUFI-O! RUF–oh, oops. TEAM COCO! TEAM COCO! TEAM COCO! TEAM COCO!!!
