2009 Oscars Obscure Pop Culture Reference Showdown

Will Smith - "Boom Goes The Dynamite"



Vs.

Robert De Niro - "Jeff Spicoli"



Is this just another excuse to show the "Boom Goes the Dynamite" clip? Absolutely. But I'm telling you, that cover-up by Will Smith was brilliant. From this day forward, whenever I'm asked to make a wedding speech and I begin fumbling (read: slurring) my words, there's no doubt I'll be pulling out the "Dynamite" reference to smooth things over. Because really, it will be a marked improvement over my customary: "I'm sorry... I'm drunk... And the only single bridesmaid just told me to go die in a fire..."

Also, I think it's fantastic that Jeff Spicoli has finally come around to accepting people of all orientations. Equal rights for everyone... It's never too late to see the light.

Ummmm... I guess that will depend on which Bridesmaid(s) tells me to go die in a fire. But the smart money is definitely on the Hutchinson-Corbett matrimonial festivities... Although it could just as easily happen this weekend, now that I think of it.
