A. Quinton — Nov. 5th 2012
I discovered this wonderful sketch from The 1491s via a tweet by Kate Beaton this morning. It’s from way back in 2009 (from the dark days when people cared about Twilight), but I laughed and cringed all the same. In fact, I reveled in the unassailable correctness of Native Americans skewering the faux-tribal stupidity of the Twilight “werewolves”. If you don’t crack a smile at the scenes of these guys (including a nebbish who looks no more native than Taylor Lautner) pretending to turn into werewolves, please just go ahead and add Werewolf News to your hosts file.
The 1491s are a comedy group “based in the wooded ghettos of Minnesota and buffalo grass of Oklahoma. They are a gaggle of Indians chock full of cynicism and splashed with a good dose of indigeneous satire.” You can check out more of their work at 1491s.com.
