I am a man. I communicate with other men by spouting off quotes from movies and shows I think are cool or funny. That’s what men do. If you aren’t familiar with this surface-level method of interaction, bless your heart, but that seems almost impossible. Men need you to know about the sweet stuff they dig. We’ll do it at home, abroad, or at work.

Just look at WGN’s Josh Frydman. The Chicago-based anchor ladled in a heaping helping of references to Tim Robinson’s Netflix show I Think You Should Leave. I’ll be honest and say that I didn’t expect this to be funny. I was wrong. Frydman takes the show’s genuine weirdness and pushes it on basic cable, and the results are tremendous.

I would be hard-pressed to try and highlight every reference in the video. While some feel a tad forced, his delivery tows the line between joke and calling an NFL game. I never thought I would be interested in NFL footage again, but here I was, gladly watching my least favorite sports league.

Men are gonna men. Most of the time, that’s bad. Other times it can just get annoying like all the poor people who had to listen to Dark Knight enthusiasts explain what a RICO charge was yesterday. This video is an example of someone using the annoying powers of men for good.
