Tenacious D

[Comedy Rock] Saturday, July 28

As a freshman in high school, I worked illegally (age) in a kitchen with two other guys working illegally (green cards) making waffle cones. Every week, we would argue over whose music to play. The Mexican kid liked gangster rap. The Czech guy liked ’80s pop. But we always agreed on Tenacious D. And though there wasn’t one fluent language between us, Jorge, Alexandr and I understood each other perfectly for 50 minutes and 49 seconds a day. And for that, we had Jack Black and Kyle Gass to thank. Also, “I’m like a fucking one man band, I’m like a fucking one man band.”
