An open letter to Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

Dear Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist (N&NIP)

You had so much promise. You have Michael Cera and that girl from that awesome episode of Sex and the City with the Bat Mitzvah. You also had Bishop Allen, and I love Bishop Allen. A lot.

But strike one was when you spelled my name wrong. It really really would have been awesome if you’d lost the “h”. Strike two was the over-advertising. Strike three was just showing the same fucking ad over and over. That’s different from over-advertising. Over-advertising can be market saturation, with lots of different ads everywhere. That’s annoying on one level. What’s more annoying is seeing the same fucking ad every time. If you’re going to be shoving my face in your movie, at least show me a clip that’s not the one where that girl says she found Jesus.

Yours truly,

Nora “Fuck The H” Crapwelike

PS: No, I’m not going to see your movie. I’ll go see Bishop Allen another time.
