If you don't think that is being insulting to the fans and not the band, I don't know what to say to you.

I said it's open-ended, and could be read either way. It's obviously an insult to the band, as any insult there towards the fans is dependent upon the assumption that the band is not worth being a fan of. That's how I read it anyway.

Bon Jovi's a popular band, and if people like them, it's no big deal. I don't think less of anybody for being a Bon Jovi fan, but I'd like to think it's okay to joke around about it, you know? It's hard to take them seriously, again, it's not a big deal.

That Triumph video is one of my favorites.

Free airfare too?

I saw the band earlier this year as well. Good show - lots of audience participation too. I guess they are a guilty pleasure

Oh, and that Triumph skit - I used to have the complete skit bookmarked on my computer. That is frickin' HILARIOUS and one of the funniest EVAH!

Yeah but some posts in here really didn't look like joking around. Looked more like stating opinion as fact.

Anyway, the triumph video was indeed funny! I love how he bashes Sugar Ray in the same video. Both bands were good sports about it!

Yeah, you know how I feel about that.

Oh well, I just wanted to drop off my lighthearted Bon Jovi (calling them BJ is too funny to say) joke and leave.

YouTube - Triumph the Insult Dog - Bon Jovi


This was easily your proudest moment Triumph Maybe the dog show bit was close, but this one is my favorite.

But................................. it requires the participation of your subject to truly make a skit like this work. And Bon Jovi clearly understood that they were being used and insulted for the benefit of the bit and Conan. They went along with every dumb joke thrown their way, much of it personal, with humor and good will, allowed them on to the bus, exposing drug paraphernalia and opening themselves up to a significant risk. And allowed it to be used on air. To laugh at the band as if they weren't getting the joke played on them, is only fooling yourself. I'm not a Bon Jovi fan in the least, but I gave them a huge props for making this Triumph's greatest moment. One he most likely will never top.

And like Coldplay, anyone playing a free concert that allow's thousands of fans to see is at least trying to do something for their fans who may not be able to see them otherwise.

Maybe it's just me.
