All together now: MOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!
Yesterday on Today, the One Direction of Australia, 5 Shits of Summer (or whatever their name is), performed and hundreds of crazed tweens lined up for them and some slept on the sidewalk for almost a week to see them. Well, I guess Fifty Shades of Grey is the 5 Seconds of Summer to the boxed wine-drinking, Honda CR-V-driving mom crowd. The trailer that makes Fifty Shades of Shit look like a story about a soulless animatronic serial killer who ties up a homeless librarian with bad bangs was shown on Today this morning and some people lined up while holding signs. Those women only have one fuck to give and that fuck is for Fifty Shades of Grey! A lot of hos who read mess read it in the back of a darkened closet with a flashlight and anytime someone came into the room and turned the lights on, they’d scream, “TURN OFF THE LIGHTS! I don’t want you to see me like this!” But not these moms. They proudly read that shit on the subway during rush hour and they are not ashamed to show up to Today on International Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer Day and show their faces in the daylight.
And I shouldn’t say that only moms lined up, because I see that man in the turquoise polo. On the outside, he’s saying, “I was dragged here, I’m just their ride, I don’t know what a Fifty Shades of Grey is,” but on the inside he’s squealing, “OH GOD YES OH GOD YES! I’m Gay for Grey!”
If moms are lining up for the trailer, I can only imagine what the premiere is going to be like. It’s going to be more chaotic than a 75% off “everything must go” sale at Chico’s.
And who ever came up with the idea for this sign should be handcuffed and jailed:
Matt Lauer winking while holding a gigantic pair of handcuffs with his toddler hands? That’s Fifty Shades of NOPE.
