Quentin Tarantino was on “American Idol” last night. Did you see it? Well, good for you and the other 22 million people in America. Don’t you just feel fucking special that you got to watch some meagerly talented teenagers sing their hearts out for the chance to be owned and manipulated by a massive corporate organization that will eat them up, shit them out, and pull the gold teeth out of their turds.
Anyway, Quentin Tarantino was a mentor or something or another, and during the course of the show, there was a short little featurette about Inglourious Basterds that spliced together scenes from the flick and Quentin Tarantino on the set, being a little obnoxious (hopefully for the sake of “AI” viewers, and not because he always acts like an overenthusiastic gym coach on set). Not much here you haven’t seen from the trailer, except a small shot of Mike Meyers and, well, I may never get tired of Brad Pitt saying he’s gonna kill some Nat-zees (that’s not true; I’ll probably be sick to death of it by the time the movie opens in August).
At any rate, here’s that clip. It’s definitely worth the 41 seconds it takes to watch it.
