Only in America will you see an ass that size on the streets (and that isn’t a hit on America’s trouble with obesity).
Comedian Kurt Braunohler, known for hiring a skywriter to sketch out the phrase “How do I land?” over Los Angeles and spending part of last summer driving a Jet Ski down the Mississippi River in a tuxedo-print wetsuit, is now driving a giant, double-sided ass across America to promote his new show.
Via A.V. Club:
The 14-foot-long papier-mâché ass is the hook of a pilot Braunohler is shooting for Comedy Central and will make stops in Las Vegas, Denver, Kansas City, Louisville, and Washington, DC, among other butt-friendly cities. As Braunohler notes in a post on his website, driving the butt—which weighs almost a ton and sits on a flat-bed truck—is about “inserting absurdity into stranger’s lives to make this bleak world a little bit brighter.”
JUST THE FACTS ABOUT THE BUTT Today I will begin driving a butt across the United States of America. It is a large butt. It is 14-feet tall, 15-feet long, 8-feet wide and weighs 1600 lbs. It’s actually a double butt. It’s got a butt on both sides. A front butt and a back butt. So no matter what angle you see it from, you get all the butt. The entire journey is a part of a pilot I’m making for Comedy Central called, “Better. Dumber. Faster. with Kurt Braunohler”. The show is all about inserting absurdity into stranger’s lives to make this bleak world a little bit brighter. So we’re driving a butt across America. For no other reason than it’s dumb and funny and hopefully will surprise people. I will be joined on the journey by my co-creator and show runner, Scotty Landes, and my wife, Lauren Cook I have no idea what this will be like. It’s a large, flat-bed truck I’ll be driving. I’ve never driven a large, flat-bed truck. Much less a large, flat-bed truck with a giant butt on it. So here’s our proposed route – who knows if we’ll be able to stick to this schedule. We’re gonna try. We’re dropping the butt off in my mom’s driveway in New Jersey. She is not aware of this yet. THE LOVE BUTT TOUR 2015 June 30th – Las Vegas, NV July 1st – Moab, UT July 2nd – Denver, CO July 3rd – Kansas City, MO July 4th – Louisville, KY July 5th – Charlottesville, VA July 6th – Washington DC (mid-day) and Asbury Park NJ (night) If you run a comedy show on any of those nights in any of those towns, send me a message and maybe I’ll bring the butt by and do a set. Or if you’re just having a party for the 4th of July, I’ll bring the butt over and you can do body shots off the crack. If you see the butt, take a picture and tag it #TheLoveButt. I’ll be sending updates from the road on Twitter (@kurtbraunohler) and Instagram. Follow me there to get the whole journey of #TheLoveButt. I now welcome all of your horrible ass puns.
This bodacious booty is like the embodiment of a classic rap song. Kurt will probably have more than a few awkward encounters with dudes telling him to “shake it like a salt shaker,” or that he’s “got back.” But, it comes with the territory. You don’t drive around with an “Ass Like That” and not expect a few jokes. Kurt, who is you playin’ wit? Back that azz up. .
