I am so confused



Okay, I think I’ve reached my limit. I can no longer discern what is real and what is parody on the internet. It seems like it’s something that , with just the tiniest bit of reasonable thought, would be easy to figure out…but no. I saw something just now that was pretty much the straw that broke the camels back.
Allow me to introduce you to Pinkletank

Wait…what? So, this is the first thing I saw about them and I was leaning towards it being a joke. I mean, it could be some Tim and Eric shit starring two kids with downs syndrome. That would make sense and bring order to the world…but no. There’s more.


First off, that’s an ILL truck stop stage. Secondly, I have no idea what’s going on in the clip. Is this guerilla marketing? And, again, downs syndrome?

I guess they hate rap…or do they? I CAN’T FUCKING TELL ANYTHING ANYMORE.


So this video was the first one to kinda let me inside to what’s really going on. Gauging from this, the kids is actually just deeply southern and does not have Downs syndrome (a common mistake I’m sure tons of people make when evaluating deeply southern people). His name is “Tank” which leads me to believe his sister’s name is “Pinkle”. Obviously, he’s the mind behind the music. He’s the composer and he’s the one banging out the hot jams.

And , finally, the unforgettable cover of everyone’s favorite Adele song

So, my final synopsis is that Pinkletank is real. So real. So, either they have the most delusional parents on earth or the meanest parents on earth. That’s really the question for the ages though so there’s no way I could ever answer that with any certainty.

  1. You just don’t get it man. The first time I got tankled I fell in love with their music. Tank is one of the most talented guitarists I’ve ever seen and their lyricism is so complex and unique you could listen to one of their songs over and over again. I am looking forward to their next release with anticipation

  2. Went to one of there shows awhile back…they weren’t quite rehearsed like they are in these videos but if you paid for one of their tickets with meth, you got a free white hood and pitchfork. I kid, I kid, they actually sounded great then too.

  3. Thanks for the daily crack-me-up. I literally look forward to reading your crappy awesome blog everyday at work.

  4. The saddest part is that full grown man in their live videos that apparently isn’t even allowed to be in the shots.

  5. i thought this was obviously very real. little kids with shitty music tastes playing bad music is pretty common, and i guess some adults with bad taste thought it was cute and put it on the internet. i feel like i’ve seen shit like this a hundred times.

    this is the sort of laughing-at-you-not-laughing-with-you stuff that goes viral every week, like tay zonday. that guy obviously doesn’t have a clue how ridiculous he is, but the rest of the world does, that’s why he went viral. on the other hand, the “unforgivable” videos are clearly a joke and they went viral because they’re a good parody (although for the first ten seconds or so of watching it its not very clear)

    riff raff would be better fodder for this discussion

    • Captain buzzkill over here. Can’t these clips just be ridiculous and funny? Also, judging from the view counts, they haven’t really gone viral yet. I’m sure they will though.

      • yeah, it can be ridiculous and funny, but it seemed like you were genuinely confused about its authenticity!

  6. I wonder how long before this kid realizes his sister is holding him back from greatness. I mean he lays down these killer tracks and she just comes along and fucks them all up.
