The humor of 10:10: No pressure

I love horror movies because they’re really fun. They tap into those wonderful primal emotions.
Margot Kidder—actress

I have not previously blogged about the 10:10 No pressure film because I thought it was being sufficiently covered on the blogosphere. According to the 10:10 organization, the film was supposed to be humorous. I guess one might say it fell somewhat flat in its humor. It has managed to outrage a large majority of those who have seen it. With a little luck, it may single handedly set the Green movement back about 20 years.

After reading the comments to the 10:10 blogs in Watts up with that, http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/09/30/o-m-g-video-explodes-skeptical-kids-in-bloodbath/ http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/10/01/1010-exploding-skeptical-children-video-disappears/ http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/10/01/a-message-to-1010-sorry-just-doesnt-cut-it/ http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/10/01/wuwts-story-on-1010-3rd-most-popular-on-wordpress-globally-even-in-new-zealand/ http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/10/01/blow-me-up-blow-me-down/ (Most links to the film have been disabled, but if you should want to see it, the last one still has an active link as I am writing this.) I did find some humor, not in the film, but in the comments.

In just a quick scan, I found the following critiques to the film. There are many, many more.

It appears that the 10:10 organization has acquired 20:20 hindsight.

“Hey! Hey! Ten-ten day, how many kids did you blow away?”

Welcome everyone, sorry our first episode blew up on us, but onward and upward.

On reflection, I found it Hitlarious.

Intolerance, thy name is environmentalism.
