One of my favorite recent Twitter-related trends is the onslaught of jokes from late-night talk show hosts pointing out how laughably dull (or stupid) some of our favorite celebs’ tweets really are. Read aloud, even the most seemingly innocuous Tweets are often hilarious.
Now Break.com, a video site heavily geared towards a male audience, is looking to get in on the action. The site has signed on comedian Mike Polk (formerly of HBOLabs) to host a show called Tweet Boxx, which is specifically focused on making fun of the Twitterverse. You can catch the first episode here.
Polk kicks off the inaugural show saying that each week he’ll “be sharing with you my favorite celebrity Twitter tweets of the week” following that up a moment later with, “what am I saying here, these are words?” Welcome to my life, Mr. Polk.
The show’s definitely worth watching if you’re a heavy Twitter user, and you’ll also probably love it if you’re still in the “Twitter is stupid” camp. The novelty of making fun of tweets will probably wear off at some point, but I think we still have a ways to go before we get there.
Polk closes the show by saying, “as long as celebrities continue to be stupid, I’ll continue to mock them from the safety and comfort of my living room.” He’s got his work cut out for him.
