Watch a conservative morning show get duped by the ultimate punk rock joke
“New Glory Found to You Guys”
Posted on November 24, 2021
Attempts by conservatives to engage with popular culture routinely yield truly ridiculous results, and the latest to do the trick finds a New Hampshire AM radio crew utterly overwhelmed when it comes to a prank caller. punk-rock.
Visual artist Rob Dobi shared a clip of himself calling for Life with Liz, a show that aired on WSMN 1590 in Nashua, NH, with the sole purpose of naming “as many punk bands as possible before they get popular”.
Dobi calls out on the show as “Bill,” who shares that he’s “a Republican in a pretty liberal area.” In character, he convincingly portrays his right-wing grievances, with skillfully crafted references to over 15 different bands from across punk history.
“Sometimes I feel like everyone is just… like, against me,” he shares. “I feel like what we need to do is listen to what our descendants have told us. In the past, we refused to live a life of agony. I’m sick of all this. I’m sick of people thinking we’re just a minor threat. Enough of this fugazi.
Dobi didn’t stop there. “A lot of these people, they just have bad brains, they’re misfits waving black flags – they’re practically anti-flags. I think we need to come together and help the young people of today. Anytime you blink, 182 children…disappear. I think we shouldn’t be exploited anymore. Let’s stand up against it, or they’ll face the fallout, boy.”
Liz Gabert and her co-hosts agreed, and before Dobi hung up, he shared that he was on his way to catching some “really big fish.” Gabert seriously asks, “Are you going to eat that really big fish for your Thanksgiving dinner?”, to which Dobi replies, “Well, not if it tastes rancid.”
Really, his final signature is the icing on the cake: “New Found Glory to you guys.”
