Pure genius as usual. You still have your mojo!
I think it would be awesome if we saw you playing air guitar. I don't know how often you'd get to reuse the picture though.
that last frame looks weird.... the way the chord hangs I thought it was some strange appendage at first. and now the magic is over... I can still imagine and hope for a mutant Scott in the future.
+1 for Nate's idea: "I think it would be awesome if we saw you playing air guitar". Going only a small step further, perhaps you could do a "Scott Answers Your Questions/Does Requests" BI comic?
Wow, this is pretty meta. I wonder how much Scott got from The Biggest Loser, Ziploc and Bose. Go Scott!
I'm going to buy those headphones!
I'm also voting for a "How to play air guitar" comic! That said, this one was great as usual!
I don't think it actually works like that. And Bose you say? I was going to go Phillips, but I hear you (though not for long).
I feel a strange compulsion to buy Bose noise-cancelling headphones....
"I think it would be awesome if we saw you playing air guitar." Definitely. He could slot that image into any comic seamlessly!
"they expect us to think making a morbidly obese person cry on camera is a legitimate part of a work out" genius! I will be stealing that line and using it a lot
That, Thomas, would lead to stuff nobody wants to see...
Though I like the air guitar idea.
As one of many who sit on the couch eating M&M's and drinking regular Coke while watching Biggest Loser, I find the product placement ad's in the show offensive.
I'm gonna say what we're all thinking -- how much did Air Guitar (tm) pay you for this comic?
It looks like the votes are in. Your public has spoken. Scott, you must now display your air guitar skills. I agree with Sebaschan, that would fit into any comic seamlessly.
@Nate It could probably be used once or twice a comic. I know I can't walk the dog or fold laundry without shreddin' some air.
You've tapped into my brain. Don't judge me, I like the Biggest Loser but cringe whenever it's product placement time--Ziploc, Jennie-O turkey, Quaker Oats, Extra sugarless gum, Subway, etc. Again, don't judge me, for I have recently purchased said products, and had been to Subway this weekend. Noooooooooooo!
I'm going to go buy an air guitar right now!
I, for one, suddenly have a desire to befriend some geeky guy named Rick.
Can I post twice here?
Anyway, his best friend is a complete what exactly? And, would that best friend be Scott? In which case, I'm sure he's right that his best friend is a complete whatever-it-is-that-he-is!
3rd panel nicely pulls off the old, overused joke of misleading the viewer to think you were actually going to help your friend with the earphones and some relaxing music. The air guitar is the icing that makes the whole joke fresh and tasty again.
