Video: Samuel L. Jackson’s ‘Boy Meets World’ beat poetry
I don’t know, Internet. Today, you have been given Samuel L. Jackson reciting slam poetry about “Boy Meets World.” What else do you want? After that, you should be content forever, never again snarking or requiring a single piece of viral content.
The “Snakes on a Plane” star stopped by the Tonight Show to participate in one of their sublimely silly bits. The very game Mr. Jackson recited a lengthy slam poem about Corey, Topanga, and Mr. Feeny. This gag combines everything the Internet must feed on to survive: Nineties nostalgia, combining disparate genres to humorous effect, and Samuel L. Jackson very seriously doing something dumb. It’s well timed, too: As all TGIF aficionados know, a “Boy Meets World” spinoff called “Girl Meets World” is in the works.
In this case, Internet lightning actually struck twice: Comedians Caitlin Bitzegaio, Darcy Carden, and Tim Dunn released a similar video back in 2009. This allows me to write my favorite sentence of all time: Internet, which “Boy Meets World” slam poem do you prefer?
