Funny or Die: "Foreskin Intervention"

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I don't know if I'm allowed to link to this video or not but it is a little comedy film on funnyordie.com

 

I am not sure how I feel about it. A group of family and friends confront a man and try to persuade him for his own good to get a circumcision. They spew myths and the man counters that it is mutilation. On one hand the pro-circumcising family is shown to be absurd so, hopefully, that subversively points out the absurdity of circumcision itself. On the other, I don't think it counters the myths enough and I wonder if the typical viewer will see the truth. Will they see "male circumcision is absurd" as I see when I watch the video? Or will they see "Having an intervention to ask a grown man to get circumcised by a mohel is absurd. We all know he should go to the doctor and discuss it privately or he just should have had it done when he was a baby."

I don't think it's as anti-circ as most would probably like, but it makes the pro-circ arguments seem unhinged and absurd as Jared is the voice of reason. And the fact that the girlfriend was utterly clueless as to what a foreskin was at the end kind of reinforces the "what's the big dealness" of it all.
