I give up. Too many regulars at Z on TV have contacted me today asking if I saw this video and what I thought of it. I will tell you what I think: There is no way this guy can ever go back to being a reality TV dad. Hollywood has blown his mind and taught him about irony and deconstructing his own media image. I am not sure he gets it, and if he doesn't, that would make him the joke rather than the joker. But this is actually a pretty savvy commentary on him not being able to go back and be what estranged wife Kate referred to last week as the "old" Jon. Take a look.
The video, by the way, comes from funnyordie.com. It's got people laughing and talking. But I think most people wish he'd spend more time just being dad to his kids, rather this TV character.
