Man Rants Against Bald Villains, Says Hollywood Is Discriminating
One man is tired of Hollywood giving bald people a bad rap.
YouTube user DarkAntics has posted a lengthy tongue-in-cheek diatribe against what he sees as discrimination against fellow bald people, citing as evidence bald villains in Superman, The Matrix and Star Trek, while pointing to a dearth of bald heroes in movies and TV shows.
"This notion has seeped into every pore of our media," says the man. And there's more.
He invented something called the Baldel test (a variation of the Bechdel test), which is a movie in which two bald characters have a conversation about a person without hair. Other evidence includes a flowing-locked Nicolas Cage fighting a bald John Malkovich. Ditto for Paul Rudd vs. Corey Stoll in Ant-Man. And Robert Downey Jr. vs. Jeff Bridges in Iron Man.
And no, he doesn't want you to remind him that Vin Diesel is a hero. He's got a retort for that.
