In case youâ€™ve been living under a rock with neither internet nor cable access, you mightâ€™ve missed this recently unearthed clip of Bill Oâ€™Reilly experiencing, um, technical difficulties on the set of Inside Edition during his pre-FOX days. Itâ€™s good to see that the fame and fortune he gained from The Oâ€™Reilly Factor really hasnâ€™t changed him that much â€” heâ€™s still the same unhinged, unstable, belligerent blowhard he was when he had hair, and Iâ€™m sure tantrums like this date back to his infancy. And this guy actually thinks heâ€™s an authority on raising kids?
Oâ€™Reilly has tried to laugh this off, but thereâ€™s plenty more fun to be had. In solidarity with his idol, Stephen Colbert released a clip of one of his own past freakouts, and Keith Olbermann invited an Oâ€™Reilly-type body language expert (actually Stacy Grenrock Woods of the Daily Show) to talk about BORâ€™s dictatorial body language â€œmostly seen by your Benito Mussolinis, your General Pinochets.â€ Some terrific remixes of BORâ€™s meltdown have started surfacing, like this hilarious one from Barely Political, and even a dance remix.
So we at FOX ATTACKS! thought weâ€™d invite all of you to submit your own Oâ€™Reilly Tantrum remixes! As you can see from the clips above, there are a lot of directions you could take this, so go for whatever you think is the funniest and most entertaining. You can find a downloadable Quicktime version of the original clip here â€” the rest is up to you!
When you have finished your video, post it on YouTube and paste the URL into a comment in this blog. Once we have enough videos, weâ€™ll put them on a page where everyone can view them and vote on them. There will be prizes for winners in multiple categories (TBD).
Canâ€™t wait to see what you guys come up with!
