As your teenagers have told you, Twilight’s latest installment “Eclipse” was released to millions of views at Midnight on Tuesday. Without commenting on our view of the series or Vampires or which team is liberal or conservative, we here at MKCB decided to interview a moviegoer waiting in line that night to see if all the hype has had an adverse affect on our society. Here is what we determined:
Meet Mary and Jenna-two fans camping out in line to see “Eclipse” on opening night.
MKCB: So Mary, I see you have a blanket made out of the movie poster-how did you get that?
Mary: OMG! It is so awesome! I copied the picture off of the internet and took it to Walgreens and had them make this totally awesome blanket–which I so totally needed for tonight’s showing.
MKCB: And so how long have you been camped out here waiting for the movie to begin?
Mary: Since October 17 of last year.
MKCB: Ummm, wow, that is amazing. You do know don’t you that it will likely be showing all summer and you could probably see it this weekend without much trouble?
Mary: Shut-up! What kind of Team Edward player would I be if I didn’t show up and show Edward how loyal I am to him? What would he think?
Jenna: Yeah, and what would Team Jacob think?
MKCB: Probably nothing, because he has no idea you are actually here today.
Mary: You did not just say that!
MKCB: So how have you been able to survive sitting here for 8 months?
Mary: Well, I brought a laaaaaaaa lot of chips and cokes and stuff and Jenna and I take turns watching the stuff so we can eat and go to the ladies room and stuff like that…
MKCB: Well have you been keeping up with the news? What do you think of the oil spill?
Mary: Dude, they totally cleaned that up years ago before that Palin chick was ever even heard of.
MKCB: No, I mean the new oil spill.
Mary: ummmm…. well….
MKCB: Nevermind, what about the Al Gore sex scandal–have you heard about that?
Mary: Ewwwwww…. seriously, that is gross and no, I’m so sure that did not happen.
MKCB: Well, enjoy the show, I just wanted you to know that the movie is 126 minutes long so you have been sitting here 2.06 days for each minute of the movie.
Mary: BOOM! Dude my brain just exploded.
Jenna: Yeah, mine totally did.
MKCB: Funny, I don’t see any loose pieces lying around…
