Why Is This Comedian Driving A Giant Butt Across America?

Summer’s a great time to go on a road trip with your best friends. You know, if your friends aren’t giant butts that want to travel the country. But in the spirit of freedom (and a Comedy Central pilot), Kurt Braunohler is hitting the highways with a 1600 pound butt (hey, almost as big as your mom’s!) that’s sure to please every last person who sees it out in the wild.

Here’s what Braunohler said about the trip on his Instagram, the No. one place for news about his giant butt:

Today I will begin driving a butt across the United States of America. It is a large butt. It is 14-feet tall, 15-feet long, 8-feet wide and weighs 1600 lbs. It’s actually a double butt. It’s got a butt on both sides. A front butt and a back butt. So no matter what angle you see it from, you get all the butt.”

All the butt. Got it.

“The entire journey is a part of a pilot I’m making for Comedy Central called, ‘Better. Dumber. Faster. with Kurt Braunohler.’ The show is all about inserting absurdity into stranger’s lives to make this bleak world a little bit brighter. So we’re driving a butt across America. For no other reason than it’s dumb and funny and hopefully will surprise people. I will be joined on the journey by my co-creator and show runner, Scotty Landes, and my wife, Lauren Cook”

You know that insertion joke’s intentional, right? I do, and I salute it. Just like I would salute this giant butt if it rolled into my town and parked in my driveway (which I would totally be open to, FYI).
