Anyone else looking forward to this?  It's the first ever animated sitcom on 𝕏!

feel bad for this Norm guy, he just can't catch a break

madhair60

it must be hard for Norm. he is set in his ways.

what the fuck is this?

i cannot get a read on who the target is AT ALL.

is it satire? WHAT IS THIS?

edit: why have i spent the last 5 minutes thinking about this? send help.

I saw some comments saying the theme tune is done with AI, couldn't find a country singer who'd get on board with it I guess, not even Oliver Anthony.

I thought this was going to be like Crimer/those Friends things done by the same guy, but for the early 00s Norm McDonald vehicle.

Crimer really didn't do it for me but pre-nanas Lineham loved it so always wondered what I was missing. Though perhaps he'll get a writing gig on The New Norm Show!!

Is it satire? Is it sincere? Maybe it's both. Or neither! Seems fairly... non-binary *laughter*

Crimer was ace. Of the many other accounts I can only remember liking Doctor Whomn't

I thought this would be an AI reanimation of Norm MacDonald.  So relieved it isn't.
God it was so fucking boring.
Waaah, everyone is turning trans and the rainbow people are ruining everything, waaaah.  Why can't I be a horrible bigot anymore, waaaaaaahhh...

It's heartening that everyone in the comments thought it was rubbish too.

The non binary character's disbelief that the old curmudgeon has a black friend is what broke me.

Those libertarian far right types are OBSESSED with that kind of shit, and it is insane but also mind numbingly boring.

Led Souptin

i honestly still can't tell if this is supposed to be a trolling of conservative comedy or a satire of "woke culture"

either way it fails at both and it's fucking baffling and i'm obsessed with it.

reminds me of front page newgrounds guff. i actually love it.

Reminded me of this old thread. Or of the noughties generally, where everyone was running about making fun of people just for being gay or having disabilities or whatever. Except, they still had a veneer of irony back then, and a sense there had been some social progress. They weren't all running around wanking on about 'defeating the woke mind virus.'

This stuff is just rotten, and woefully unfunny. I stuck around to see the Elon Musk cameo at the end. They actually sing "thank god for Elon Musk and his shiftless memes... X is the home of free speech" while a flattering looking Elon character enters and waves to the camera.

I don't even know what to say.

Christ that looks dire

quite apart from the stupid unfunny shit and heavy-handed BLACK PEOPLE HAVE IT GREAT ACTUALLY, SHUT UP angle with Norm's boss, that ankle bracelet is clearly too big for his ankle. Look at the size of it compared to his foot, it's been sized to match his pant leg and not his actual leg. I could let that go except they made a point of showing him trying to chisel it off, which makes it even more obvious.

oggyraiding

The black man gives a beer to the non-binary person, which is a misdemeanour or felony depending on circumstances, so that's a CRIME.

He then says the non-binary person was fine convincing his son to have gender affirming surgery, which I think misrepresents what the non-binary person did as I doubt they were the main cause of Regina's desire to transition, so that's BIGOTRY.

Then he complains about the non-binary person refusing to drink beer, which is complaining about a minor not underage drinking and committing a MIDEMEANOUR.

This show encourages bad behaviour.

Yeah I'm having to watch it again just to drink in the sheer awfulness. The daughter lifting the dogs tail and saying "it's non-binary".

"Transitioning to what?"
"Hopefully not a Jets fan!"

The sucking up to Trump fans at the end with the autotuned AI voice singing "make America funny again."

Jesus fuck. The first animated sitcom aimed at people who sit around retweeting LibsOfTikTok all day long.

Hey guys get a load of my cool new sitcom idea

It's about - get this - trans people. (wheeze, gasp) Isn't that just the fucking funniest thing you've ever heard?
There's gonna be this woman and get a load of this (pauses to wipe tear from eye), she has a penis! Or she used to have one, maybe? Imagine!
Oh and she has a friend who, oh fuck my sides hurt, the friend wants to be called 'they'. And dyes their hair blue!
(Clutches aching ribs) And they're going to be like that and expecting to be treated like real people! Can you believe this wacky woke world we're living in?

Barry Admin

Wow the main account is just posting this stuff over and over again to "explain" why people are up in arms about an ongoing fucking genocide:



Another episode here, with AOC falling in love with a weirdly good-looking Elon Musk - https://x.com/XNewNorm/status/1771152933486203391

Omg, Dave Rubin and whoever else are behind this travesty really have been sitting around licking Elon's hole for months just to get it made and promoted:

The gap between actual rocket scientist, and dudebro memer, has been closed.  The singularity has been achieved

I didn't get why they visited Disney World at the end of the epsode in the OP, but it's yet more sucking up to that billionaire shithouse regarding his tantrum over Bob Iger/Disney cancelling their adverts on Twitter:




The Musk tweet is genuine - an April Fool's joke that he nicked off someone else.

omg

is the plan to make something so incomprehensible that you have to watch it four times to begin understanding it? I honestly cannot follow what is happening in that video. Its got that tim and eric awesome show poor production vibe but at face value.

Are all the voices ai too? It sounds like they could be, but hard to tell if it's just a horrific performance.

It all just feels so desperate too. So gross. I LOVE IT

Sometimes you wonder like... are they just lying, when they say how brilliant it is? How on earth could you watch that and unironically call it the future of animation? The shit first cartoon at least evokes a style, this one takes the characters from that and makes them artless and lifeless, appearing badly-dubbed in a crap, sloppily-paced 'skit'.

It's like their minds are blown by the very concept that you can make AOC say or do something AOC wouldn't normally say or do. You know, like what South Park has been doing for decades.

Shaky

Watching that clip in isolation it's clearly satire, isn't it? Surely. Taking that tried and tested Family Guy style animation and loading it up with right-wing non-sequitors from recent times. No way is this a legitimate attempt at making new comedy. It's a stupid anti-comedy bit. Has to be.

The non binary person was allergic to dogs, talk about some woke B.S.!

Barry Admin

Oh they even used the X logo to censor the word "fuck.".

A gay republican sucking up to a transphobic billionaire manchild while constantly excusing genocide and shitting on trans and non-binary people... It's just too much 2024 energy.



Edit: add in the fact also that it's proclaiming itself as the future of comedy and free speech, while kissing the hole of the bloke who bought the "global town square" just so he could stop people making fun of him on it anymore.

I think it's 'shitpost memes' but I prefer shiftless!

Led Souptin

Okay ive watched like 5 times now and this is really bothering me; In the first cartoon, at the end, elon musk replaces the letter X from the phrase "The first animated sitcom on X" with the letter X that he is wearing on his t shirt.

WHY?

This may be perfunctory to highlight but the letter X in that sentence was already the letter X.

Its not like it said "on twitter" and then got replaced with the letter X.

Surely there's at least a lazy transition joke in there somewhere.

It's driving me mad. Still LOVE it.

That makes more sense 😂 I listened a few times and couldn't for the life of me work out what it was. So I gave them a tiny bit of credit and presumed they might have actually made one single tiny little joke at Elon's expense.

WHY?

It's the new twitter logo styling, as in the censored "fuck" I posted above, but I suspect it's also referencing Elon putting that huge big X logo on top of the building.

The one he had to almost immediately take down as the flashing was giving people seizures.
