Adult Swim’s The Eric Andre Show is one of the more gleefully madcap shows on television. In the last episode, Andre trashed his set, fell through the ceiling of a cellphone focus group, pretended to saw his hand off in front of wrestler Chris Jericho, carried a bed-bug-infested mattress around New York, and stripped naked for NBA player Roy Hibbert. Meanwhile, his typically demure co-host, Hannibal Buress, kicked rapper Flavor Flav in the face.
Let’s go to the tape.
And the GIF.
That will never get old.
It’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s fake on The Eric Andre Show, and how much the celebrity guests are in on the joke, but Flavor Flav really wants everyone to know that, no, he wasn’t actually whomped in the kisser by Buress. “People asking about that B.S. Eric Andre show,” Flav wrote on Facebook. “That kick in the face, NEVER HAPPENED. That’s some Bullsh*t editing done to disparage Flav. Yo Eric Andre – F*CK YOU for that move gee.”
In an earlier episode this season, Andre accused Amber Rose of tweeting something super racist, said he’d bathe and poop in front of her, and murdered his talking desk (it makes sense in context… sort of). So, if anything, Flav — who nearly flew off the handle when a stagehand tried to grab his penis — got off pretty easy. But days later, he was still furious, tweeting to Hannibal, “keep sucking that D*ck you Boyz !!! Must be nice for your mouth you f*cking a*sholes.” I guess you’d be mad, too, if you got… clocked.
Sorry. I’m certain there’s more to this story to come.
