jack as elvis

There’s a local chain restaurant, Jack Astor’s, that me and my family like to go to. They have bizarre décoré, and I recently discovered that they have all these Elvis busts painted and dressed as famous people and characters, and one of them is Frank N Furter!

Picture This

So the whole point of the Pirates movies is Captain Jack Sparrow is trying to find a way to become immortal. What if the last movie in the franchise ends with him achieving that somehow. Then the movie goes to a montage of Captain Jack dancing through history doing all sorts of shenanigans. He keeps creating new identities and showing up in different settings. We see Jack with bootleggers, with Elvis, pitching the Pirates ride to Walt Disney, maybe he has a beer with Wil Turner and the Beatles, anti war protests, all over the place and then the movie ends. Then the end credit scene opens at a film studio. Young hopefuls are standing in line for some sort of audition. We see captain Jack in the line. When it’s his turn he walks in and sits in front of the casting people and introduces himself as Johnny Depp. The casting director tells him he’ll be reading for the part of Jack Sparrow when he interrupts her with a, “I think there’s supposed to be a ‘captain’ in there love” and then the movie cuts to black.

We were kinda in separate places when I mentioned the idea to her. I spoke to her on the phone and she had heard the song cause Jack had played it to her, so she really liked it. So she went into studio the next day, I think she was somewhere else, can’t remember exactly where she was though.
[On whether he was a little bit nervous pitching an idea to Taylor Swift on the phone and not knowing if she’s gonna say “oh really?”] Well, the interesting thing was - she is actually friends with Gigi, so she’d already reached out, cause Jack had already played her the song anyway cause we’ve [Jack and him] done it together and she really liked it and she’d mentioned to me that she liked the song so I already kinda knew in the back of my mind that she liked it so… I was like - I’ll ask her if she wants to be on it and she was cool with it.

  • DIRK: Oh, hey. Sorry I’ve been quiet for a bit.
  • JAKE: Perish the thought!
  • JAKE: I know how you get when youre dick deep in robots.
  • DIRK: By Jake alone could such words be guilelessly said.
  • DIRK: Uh, but yeah, something that’s been in the back of my head.
  • DIRK: What was that weirdly charming thing you said we were like?
  • JAKE: Ah! Youll recall it was, “Peas and carrots”!
  • DIRK: Peas and carrots, that’s right.
  • DIRK: I liked that, but I forgot what it’s from.
  • JAKE: Forrest gump!
  • DIRK: Oh fuck me sideways.
  • JAKE: !?
  • DIRK: Now I feel like a tremendous chump.
  • JAKE: Why the hey? Forrest’s a stupendous gump from a peerless drama!
  • JAKE: That Forrest had gusto to spare. Not to mention a fearless mama!
  • JAKE: By gum, her spunky selfless antics just filled me with elation!
  • JAKE: Remember how she boned the principal for Forrests education?
  • DIRK: I do. Wish I didn’t.
  • JAKE: And how elvis jacked forrests swagger instead of black artists?
  • JAKE: And how forrest’s friend jenny got hit by aids hardest?
  • DIRK: Yeah, uh. The big man might want to call a time-out on that claim.
  • DIRK: Dude, don’t you think there are people who that portrayal defames?
  • JAKE: Defame schemame. Now makes its debut: striderian snootiness!
  • JAKE: Disdain for whats plain as punch yet is inherently beauteous!
  • DIRK: It’s not exactly snooty that manipulative schmaltz makes me ill at ease.
  • DIRK: That weird Vietnam revisionism. Forrest with the war criminal Lyndon B.
  • DIRK: Ugh. That vaguely racist Forrest-aura that kept the protagonist from harm.
  • DIRK: A plot which intoduces... the new friend, Bubba, who was born to die in Forrest’s arms.
  • DIRK: Stuff like that is why I’m on the negative side of our particular Gump-opinion-schism.
  • DIRK: Cause it’s schlock fabricated to insulate a long-past generation from self-criticism.
  • JAKE: Aha! Funny you should mention the lifetime performance of donny glover.
  • JAKE: Cause theres a tidbit of reason youve yet to reckon with, lover.
  • JAKE: Theres a lesson in donny glovers story, and a reason he took home oscar glory.
  • JAKE: His small role puffed up with joie de vivre! His life fully lived before death most gory!
  • JAKE: Qualitys got a savoir-faire, a quintessence, and no man can mistake it.
  • JAKE: Be the writing ever so dog shit, its the oomph of passion that makes it.
  • JAKE: Cant you just feel it oozing? The gumpean passion that leaks out of tom hanks!
  • DIRK: If you’re asking me to consider Tom’s ooze or his leakages, the answer’s definitely “no thanks.”
  • DIRK: Dribbling pus or passion aside, it’s with the takeaway that I’ve got compunctions.
  • JAKE: But isnt it the person viewing, that molds their own takeaway and imbues it with gumption?
  • DIRK: Toxic garbage is as toxic garbage does. No matter if the audience puts their voice in.
  • DIRK: I’ll never like that shitty movie, and I feel like all mentions of it are poisoned.
  • JAKE: Well. We may be at an impasse. But instead of feeling like a first-class horses ass,
  • JAKE: Id instead like to beg my pal and paramour to not throw a pet name out like nasty trash.
  • JAKE: Whatever you got from that movie, even by irony, why all of that is all yours!
  • JAKE: Whether you wept like me big gobs of tears or hit the ground laughing on all fours.
  • DIRK: You’ve got a point, though it’s no fair baiting me with talk of an all-fours position.
  • JAKE: (Gulp...!)
  • DIRK: Despite all havoc wrought by such a propaganda mess, there’s, yeah, value in my ironic derision.
  • DIRK: And there’s some value in that dorky pet name too.
  • DIRK: Let not my snobbery be as disdain miscontrued.
  • JAKE: So its decided! “Peas and carrots” is our pet name, our badge of honor and love!
  • JAKE: Theres no more boffo sign of bonding, at least none that my brain can think of!
  • JAKE: Let he who thinks theres a more spot-on symbol be proclaimed a brainless bumpkin!
  • DIRK: (Feels like we’re missing something obvious... but I don’t know what somethin’?)
  • DIRK: But yeah.
  • DIRK: Lyrical and philosophical waxing aside.
  • DIRK: It’s you and me.
  • DIRK: Peas and carrots, buddy.
  • JAKE: Oh Dirk. Im just over the moon that you see things my way.
  • JAKE: It really is just like they say... “Life is like a box of chocolates!”
  • DIRK: “You need to watch out because like a good 40% of it tastes like utter shit and if you’re not careful sometimes it can horribly kill you.”
