Jon Lajoie plays the adorably selfish idiot Taco on FX’s The League, so it’s not exactly surprising to see him saying outlandish things in character. For example: “Hot girl, Volkswagen Jetta. It’s a law, like water or dinosaurs.”
Neither of those things are laws.
But in this hilarious new video, “Completely Honest Commercial,” Lajoie takes it to the next level, saying things that a lot of us supposedly think to ourselves, but never say out loud: “When I see a midget on the street I don’t laugh. Out loud. Because you’re not allowed to do that. But holy shit am I laughing on the inside. It’s a little midget!”
The rest of the video is a string of racist, misogynist, and downright offensive, but humorously deadpan revelations. “If you were completely honest with your self, you would realize that you’re a terrible person,” reads the onscreen text.
What’s the point? It’s actually a dig at a multinational, almost super-villain-level-evil big-agriculture company. “We are just like you, only way worse…MONSANTO.”
And now you have your work cut out for you for the day, reading about all of the company’s alleged wrong-doing. Good work, comedy, you finally taught us something.
