Make Your Own Oâ€™Reilly Tantrum Remix!
In case youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been living under a rock with neither internet nor cable access, you mightÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve missed this recently unearthed clip of Bill OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Reilly experiencing, um, technical difficulties on the set of Inside Edition during his pre-FOX days. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s good to see that the fame and fortune he gained from The OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Reilly Factor really hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t changed him that much Ã¢â‚¬â€ heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s still the same unhinged, unstable, belligerent blowhard he was when he had hair, and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure tantrums like this date back to his infancy. And this guy actually thinks heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an authority on raising kids?
OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Reilly has tried to laugh this off, but thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Reilly-type body language expert (actually Stacy Grenrock Woods of the Daily Show) to talk about BORÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dictatorial body language Ã¢â‚¬Å“mostly seen by your Benito Mussolinis, your General Pinochets.Ã¢â‚¬Â Some terrific remixes of BORÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s meltdown have started surfacing, like this hilarious one from Barely Political, and even a dance remix.
So we at FOX ATTACKS! thought weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d invite all of you to submit your own OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 Ã¢â‚¬â€ the rest is up to you!
