So, why is Fred the most famous guy you’ve never cared to know more about?
(How long did you last?)
Inanity has reached a pitch not known before: last night, Fred took the stage on Nickelodeon’s iCarly. The move highlights Nickelodeon’s recognition that cross-pollination in similarly annoying videos can’t hurt.
Yeah — pretty bad — but the decision is not to be disparaged. David Sarno of the LA Times calls this move a “colossal meeting of tween titans” and, indeed, an important demographic those tweens are. I can’t defend their collective taste, however.
I’ll save a discussion about the mind-numbing media that’s marketed to our impressionable youngsters for another outlet.
