September 10, 2021 / Posted by:

The first trailer for the film adaptation of Dear Evan Hansen had barely hit the internet when people began roasting it like a marshmallow, mostly cracking jokes about how the film’s star, 27-year-old Ben Platt, looked more like he should be playing a grown man stressed out about missing a mortgage payment than a high school student.

It always turned out to be pretty solid advice, and contestants who didn’t heed his warnings were usually sent home. I always imagined those losing designers slipped quietly away to careers in the circus or on the drag circuit. But judging from the runway at last night’s Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, some of them went on to have lucrative careers making costumes for remakes of popular movies.

It’s been over 10 years since The Hurt Locker won the Academy Award for Best Picture. That means it’s ripe for a remake. In this version, Mustard has the nerve wracking job of diffusing Mariah Carey’s Lush bath bombs. It’s a dangerous job, but Mustard’s just the man to do it. Look, he’s on the hair brush right now, getting dispatched to his next mission. They’ve found a Bom Perignon in Mimi’s toilet!
