Remember the band Insane Clown Posse? Maybe not...all I knew of them is that they were some sort of novelty rap group from several years ago, and they wore clown make-up. Little did I know that they apparently have a large and devoted cult following of fans who refer to themselves as Juggalos. And they all get together once a year for a festival known as The Gathering. And this year's festival is advertised with perhaps the most absurd infomercial I've ever seen. It's about 15 minutes long, but well-worth it for a fascinating look into the juggalo subculture. I mean, in addition to a lot of angry dudes in clown make-up, there's also wrestling, helicopter rides, all you can eat cheeseburgers, and seminars. Who knew? And Ice Cube is participating in this thing? Pauly Shore? It just gets weirder and weirder, but I did enjoy the unintentionally hilarious voiceover and graphics.
In case you share my newfound obsession with juggalo life, here's an article from Vice magazine: In the Land of the Juggalos.
Oh...links NSFW, depending on where you work, I guess.
