Here’s the annual ‘Gathering of the Juggalos’ infomercial you asked for
Oh good. I guess it’s that time again. Time for the annual “Gathering of the Jugglos” infomercial—a disheartening yearly reminder that Juggalos are still a thing somehow, and also that they are really terrible at acting.
This year’s video stars a dude named “Chops” who gets hit by a meteor, and despite being an all-around terrible human gets to go to heaven because he is a Juggalo. Because in case you forgot, it turns out the Insane Clown Posse are actually born-again Christians who believe that god is real because how else do you explain magnets or something. In actual heaven, naturally, there is the Gathering of the Juggalos, complete with “Juggalettes” who are looking for love.
I did not watch the whole thing. I watched about half, which was long enough to see that Gilbert Gottfried will be performing on their comedy stage. Which, though certainly odd, I cannot think of anything to say about except “How weird would it be to watch Gilbert Gottfried with a bunch of people in clown make-up?” That may be all anyone can say.
Even more startling is the fact that there are apparently myriad other acts for whom dumb face painting is a thing, most of which also involve white people rapping. You’d think that would get old, or that people would decide to have their own schtick, but apparently not.
Apparently they had to change their location from Cave-in-Rock, Illinois to Legend Valley near Columbus, Ohio. Which is good for me, because I live in Chicago and would not want my bosses to get any ideas in their head about sending me to cover said gathering of Juggalos. I worked at the mall in high school and have had enough of that for one lifetime.
