Nardwuar the Human Serviette

Alternative Tentacles

Nardwuar the Human Serviette is a hyperkinetic Canadian journalist of sorts, who approaches celebrities with kid-brother earnestness but blindsides them with ridiculously well-researched questions. Don’t dismiss him as an Ali G wannabe. Nardwuar’s magic is in the background information he digs up for each interview. “I hate him!” said Courtney Love. “He knows everything about everybody!” David Cross told him, “Man, you do some thorough, in-depth, unnecessary research.” But Michael Moore called Nardwuar a “national treasure,” and the usually unflappable Snoop Dogg giggled, “You’re funnier than a motherfucker!” This DVD proves them all correct, with five-plus hours of Moore, Snoop, Mikhail Gorbachev, Ian MacKaye, Vanilla Ice, Wesley Willis and about 50 other stars giggling and squirming.
