Can't seem to get enough of these good ol' Star Trek Brokeback Mountain parodies! I have a feeling this was pirated from an earlier video called Gay Trek or some-such. I think it's funny, but I don't think it insults my gay friends, or if it does, come on, guys! It's Kirk and Spock. They're funny whether they're gay or not. And we all knew they had a love that dared not speak its name, unless they were speaking in Klingon.
This is the line everyone remembers from Brokeback Mountain. The fact Jake says it with his back to the camera makes it super-effective. I haven't seen this movie since it came out, and that was quite a while ago, a few lifetimes I think. How would it strike me now? Heath Ledger is dead and gone, which is still a gut-wrenching shock. The waste. Success, fame, all that stuff, eats human beings alive.
I used to think Jake would make a pretty good Harold Lloyd, but it's a wet dream of monstrous proportions that now must be hung out to dry. He has just the right world-seducing, fuck-me quality. Well, he does. I might as well say it.
