Up Next: Mumblecore YouTube Fight Videos

Look, the fact is that you're going to see this video somewhere in the next day or so, so it may as well be here. I'm not sure what gay hipster fight, "filmed outside of a club called rhondas at el cid in los angeles (silverlake) around 4am," says about the ever-expanding nature of the YouTube fight video genre, but I would like to point out that the comment, "I used to have this fight on vinyl," represents YouTube fight video criticism at its most elegant and succinct. Please enjoy. Or recoil, that's also an option.

Video? God I remember when fights weren't so fucking commercial.

It seems odd to me that the whole thing is already autotuned.

Don King fucked it up with Friday Night Sissy Fights.

It's just pitch-correction, but close.

What's wrong with kids these days that they don't even know the melody to any West Side Story songs?

I made it to :27. I'm just, well, … You know all those articles you see about the feminization of the culture? There wasn't ONE fist in this fight. It was all slaps and kicks. You don't slap with an intent to injure. You punch. Even the kicks were sloppy. Punches express anger. Slaps and sissykicks express disdain.

(Having had four pins in my left hand from, well, punching I speak with some authority, just don't miss your target and hit a wall. Fists're easy to make. Here: )

I stopped when I saw the dude in the skirt, and heard the narrator…

I now have "Losing My Edge" stuck in my head because of this. Thanks.

Maybe they are all just big fans of Alexander Semin.

Nice of Shaquille O'Neill to drop by and break up the gay gang brawl.

Specter of Chris Crocker in the "related videos" bar at the end.

For a you tube fight video, the lighting is nice. LA is good for something after all.

HiredGoons (#603)

I'm amazed its on the street, if I recall living there correctly one goes directly from one's SUV to a building's interior.

keisertroll (#1,117)

I wouldn't be surprised if it were actually shot in Vancouver.

@kt: You're killing me today.

keisertroll (#1,117)

Nah, it's only death by a million girly slaps.

Needless to say they were not the biggest threat to The Warriors that evening.

HiredGoons (#603)

Needs more Mickey Rourke.

Jersey Shore Gorillas need to start offering lessons.

keisertroll (#1,117)

The Jersey Shore Gorillas will giving them lessons on fighting, while the L.A. gheys will give them lessons on LOVE.

Bear Boot Camp.

Sadly, they'll put it on VH1 instead of LOGO, meaning I'd have to renege on my promise on my grandma's deathbed never to watch VH1 again.

Art Yucko (#1,321)

"I'm your host, Lance Bass"

I love that they all agreed to fight in slo-mo.

saythatscool (#101)

@:34. Dangerously close.

TableNine (#1,104)

:18 was Wrists of Fury

Joey Camire (#6,325)

"You play ball like a GIRL"

This is the fighting equivalent.

smrtmnky (#4,538)

more like a sissy fit than a fight

This is one of the interesting materials I've read on LGBT and risky themes in television so far. Something else that's related to your post is this comedy video I've seen on You Tube: You might want to check it out.
