One of the best Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers songs as soundtrack to one of the most frustrating things I’m forced to endure: waiting for the daily White House Press Briefing. (The video is as hopelessly boring as my wait is, but the song is awesome. And, again, I was B-O-R-E-D.)
From the second I first saw the ST opening sequence I thought of the brilliant Seven Nation Army video & wondered if I was right about how similar they were.
In deciding to compare them I found myself also putting together a little, hastily made promo for you; vastly disarming myself in my ability to use cool clips because of your extreme anti-spoiler mindset.
But the main question remains: how do the 7NA video & ST opening sequence compare? Was it just me?
(I realized it might actually be difficult to tell them apart, so for your assistance, here’s the money shot of the ST Op Seq, twice as fast as its normal speed & with the last few seconds chopped off.)
And here’s my quickly made comparison vid turned sorta-promo, which I’m calling Eleven Nation Army, because our hero’s name is 11, due to the tattoo on her inner wrist.
And now… Eleven Nation Army
I like Stephen as Stephen, but until now, I didn’t love him like I did on Colbert Report, but in this monologue he makes up all that lost ground, and more in the most succinct, pointed, funny, and patriotic commentary I’ve seen thus far on Trump’s despicable, ignorant, racist, NFL/National Anthem bullshit.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is going to purge the scourge of racism from our higher institutions of higher learning.
Why? “If American colleges were any whiter Jon Snow would build a wall to protect us from them.”
Yeah, I know, it’s neither North Korea, Russia, or even nuclear.
