Wow. That seems like the only appropriate word. Here on FilmDrunk, we’ve long been familiar with the most esoteric, tight-knit interest communities — vanners, Avatards, Twihards, Trejotos, the Dutch — but perhaps the strangest and most devoted of them all are the Juggalos, the dedicated fans of Insane Clown Posse, whose relevance to pop culture for the non-fan basically burned along with Woodstock 99.
Which is all just an elaborate way of saying, “Holy crap, it’s 2010 and an Insane Clown Posse Western is something that actually exists.” It’s called Big Money Rustlas, premiered in Detroit over the weekend, stars (of course) Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J, and had a $1.5 million budget. It’s set in olden times, but the heroes are guys who obey the tenets of late 90s rap rock. And why not? Because as future history books will teach, when a few guys from Michigan put on clown makeup and sang sh*tty wigger rap, it touched a cultural nerve that transcended generations. And then it took a bong load.
