Funny or Die's take on the Internet's problem with TV wives

Posted on

You know who’s the best? Dudes. Especially dudes who spend their time cooking drugs and banging chicks and killing folks.

You know who’s exponentially less cool? The wives who are always nagging those dudes to, you know, stop killing people and drinking so much and stuff.

Or at least that’s what “the Internet” tends to scream about TV wives. “Skyler White is the worst!” “Betty Draper sux!” Funny or Die put out a video on Tuesday that parodies this attitude by showing what would happen if the real world responded to wives in the same way the Internet responds to TV wives. The “real world” happens to be depicted by cops and those cops happen to be jerky idiots.

So, in the real world, who’s actually going to make your book-club e-vite list: Skyler or Walt? (Hint: one choice might lead to a boring book club, but the other most likely leads to a few of your friends dying before they get to share their thoughts on The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.)
