Bleeder is the forgotten child of the Mads’ film fandom. So I’ve decided to embark on a one-person campaign to fix this travesty, because Lenny is a babe and so far only me and @devereauxsdisease seem to be clued in on this hidden gem of a character.
1. He spends most of his free time alone in his bedroom, watching movies
Which, let’s be honest, is pretty much the same thing all of us on here do.
2. He is so done with everyone’s shit
Lenny’s friends have a lot of, uh, issues but he’s not here for any of it.
‘Jesus Leo leave me alone’
‘I just want to watch my movie and you guys won’t shut up’
‘Yes and the problem is you guys and your mouths gdi’
‘Well, I’m double-fisting drinks at a hot dog shop so that should tell you all you need to know’
3. He is the patron saint of awkward crushes
This dollbaby cannot function around people he finds attractive. At. All. And his response to that issue? Just run away from them.
‘Oh hey, it’s the cute girl at the diner. Let’s stare at her through the window like a stalker and then run away awkwardly when she notices me.’
‘Oh hey, it’s that cute girl again, better run through traffic even though I have nothing to talk to her about, and then follow her halfway home like a dweeb’
‘No, and it’s not because I stole it after you touched it or anything weird like that, no siree.’
‘Oh hey, she’s down the street waiting for me to meet up with her, maybe I should just RUN THE FUCK AWAY’
So unable to handle social situations.
4. He is unapologetic about his obsessions
This sweet little chickadee loves movies and never shuts up about them. Ever. If he’s having a conversation, it’s probably about horror films or his favorite actors. Oh, you’re tired of hearing about films and think Lenny should get some new interests?
5. He wears the hell out of a velvet blazer
Just look at this fine piece. Just look.
…Need I say more?
IN CONCLUSION: Y’all had best get over HERE and watch Bleeder so we can get more rare pair fics with this babe. And maybe even read my ficsfeaturing him.
This is the second longest video I’ve ever made and editing + rendering was such a pain but I just to had to convey my feelings for this show and its main character into a video. It obviously cannot do either of them justice but it did make me appreciate this show, this art, a little bit more than I already did. The Young Pope is easily the best thing, that happened in 2016 and I’m more than thankful for it.
Now, give me a second season and Lenny his well-deserved and needed hug.
