'Jersey Shore' Gone Wilde

I'm not sure if you've seen these yet, but I felt an immediate need to share.  The object of embarassment for America and the thorn in our side: 'The Jersey Shore,' -rehashed in the style of Oscar Wilde. 

The result is brilliant.


I don't know how many times while I was abroad I was asked, 'Are all Americans like the cast of the Jersey Shore?'  I wish I could say no with a little less hesitation...

Hilarious! One of my guilty secrets is that I LOVE Jersey Shore and I don't care what anyone says - trash TV is the best kind!

I saw The Importance of Being Earnest with this cast a few months ago when my parents came to stay in New York and they were absolutely fantastic. There were points when you could tell these two actors were wetting themselves and they had to take a moment to compose themselves before they carried on - I like that sense of mischief on stage!

I LOVED these videos - tell me there are more?! Pure genius!

So lucky you got to see them! I looked the two of them up after I watched this and have become an insta-fan....Watch all five parts, on the last one they have the outtakes where they can't get out their lines without cracking up.

I love this...I've got to watch all...as someone who's a Wilde fan and can say he visited my house (of course it was a tab before my time) and who's proud to say I have never seen one episode of JS and who is distressed over their presence in one of my favorite places on the planet, this made it just a little better for me...thanks...
