Dude's Massive Rave Leads To Historically Great Local News Segment

This is a local news report about James Taylor, a wonderfully goatee'd, 20-year-old West Michigan man who threw a big-ass party at his house that featured multiple DJs, fire-throwers, go-go dancers, and about 2,000 attendees. It's a really funny news report, but it achieves transcendence around the 25-second mark.

It is at this point in the clip that Taylor begins to defend himself against those who might think he acted irresponsibly by throwing this party. "I didn't force anything down anybody's throat," he says. Good point, James! "I didn't make anybody stay here until 7:00 a.m. or 11 or whenever it is everybody finally left. I didn't make this kid pass out on my floor."

And that's when it happens. The camera pans down, and holy shit there really is a kid just passed the fuck out on James's floor right now.


This is a wonderful moment. That kid has clearly been lying in that spot for hours, and yet young James gives so few fucks that he doesn't mind letting the dude stay there while the local news tromps around the house. Oh yeah, we can do the interview right over here in the living room, guys. Watch your step here—yeah, no, it's cool, he's fine, just step on over. James Taylor isn't about to tell that kid that he has to get up and go home. James Taylor just wants everyone to party and chill and live their lives however they want to, you know?

And if there's any justice in the world, this cameraman will win the local news Emmy for outstanding camera work, or whatever award is given out to local news cameramen who have an impeccable sense for comedic timing. Give him all the awards.
