Forum Drives Tom Green to Depression, Neuroses, General Scariness
For Snakes on a Plane we witnessed what a forum can do when they really like you. For Tom Green we might see what a forum can do when you're teetering over the edge of sanity.
Post Freddy Got Fingered (among other tribulations) it would be an understatement to say Tom is upset with his fans. Since the cancellation of his short-lived MTV show he has little hope that his months-old internet efforts will do much better.
Here to aggravate the matter is Caturday-obsessed image forum /b/. Members blow up Tom's desk phone to ask (every episode without fail) for a barrel roll, one of many inside jokes of which Tom is the butt. After a phone call in which a /b/ member says "Show's closed due to AIDS" he irritably explains the ruling logic: they want a meltdown. He might just give it to them.
We oscillate between worry for Tom Green and worry he'll kill us in our sleep. He is not the amusing stunt-chaser we knew and loved. Even Andy Dick won't show up on his shows. We feel depressed just saying his name.
