Donnie Hoyle must’ve read some Thich Nhat Hanh.
In the You Suck at Photoshop season finale, the chronically depressed Grand Master of Image Altering interrupts his regularly scheduled tutorial for much needed self-reflection. Like a mini clip show, he inventories his frustration fueled accomplishments from the previous two seasons (modified pictures that figuratively rectified the problems he couldn’t fix in real life), and then reaches what I (hear interventionists on TV) call “a breakthrough.”
The Photoshop guru realizes it never had to be this way, that by practicing a little more acceptance, he could’ve stopped this butterfly effect of malcontent. Just before he reaches a high point of personal enlightenment, he asks “Who is Donnie Hoyle?” The answer? Dane cook. Really! Err…kinda really.
Okay, so we know it’s not REALLY Dane Cook, but Troy Hitch and Matt Bledsoe of Big Fat Institute decided to play into rumors that started in the comments section of their first episode on YouTube (Background: When the series began, EVERYONE thought Donnie was either Cook or David Cross).
Turns out, Dane Cook is a fan of the series, and was happy to help create the best cameo appearance I’ve seen on the web. Whether you think he’s not funny or terribly not funny, at least the dude’s got a sense of humor.
So, will there be a Season 3 of You Suck at Photoshop? The official answer from My Damn Channel is, “You Never Know!” I’m hoping for one. We’ve seen depressed Donnie. I’d like to get to know the guy when he’s not so down.
