Carrie Brownstein Rates Crowd Surfing, Cowboy Hats, and Sheet Masks | Over/Under

[upbeat drum music] – [sighs] It is definitely overrated. I was reading an article about something called being sober curious, or like flexitarian, these kind of neologisms
that basically say, I’m not this but wanna be,
is very frustrating to me. I think if you’re a
freegan, you’re not vegan, and that’s okay. You’re not vegan. People need to brand every experience. Freeganism is an old term, I mean, they’ve been using that since the Norman Conquest or whatever. I don’t know, I think
let’s move on from it. I think it’s very, very overrated. Veganism is great. Freeganism is just dumpster diving. [drum music] Those are underrated. A person that can pull off a cowboy hat is really someone with some confidence. I mean, people that work around horses, children on Halloween, ranchers, politicians trying to keep it real. It takes a certain kind of,
I don’t know, just stature, and I’m talking about sort of an internal kind of backbone to pull off a cowboy hat. When I think they’re underrated is the people that actually just, you don’t think that they’re
gonna be in a cowboy hat and then they show up in one. That’s a big move. That’s a big move. You show up to a funeral or a
job interview in a cowboy hat, and you know what? That’s a big day for you, and
you’re not gonna get that job. [drum music] Overrated. [laughs] It’s not that I’m against crowd
surfing, but I’ve done it. Okay, the first time I crowd surfed, I was at a concert called
Endfest in Seattle. The lineup was Pearl Jam, L7. And when L7 started, I was
like, that’s it, gettin’ up. First of all, it’s a little humbling. You have to ask someone, hey, would anyone like
to lift me up right now? I’m not a child, I’m not three, I’m an adult asking for
somebody to hoist me. That just takes a little humility. And then it’s just people figuring out, are you gonna do it are you gonna do it. Fine, you know, and then
someone reaches down. You step with a foot that’s
been on a grassy field, probably covered in manure or urine. They’re touching that
shoe with a bare hand. They life you up. And then it’s basically you just kicking and pummeling people all
over their face and body for .5 seconds. Then you fall to the ground,
and you try to get up again. Looks really cool in footage and stuff, and if you’re looking down on a crowd, you see someone crowd
surfing, it looks exciting. But trust me, that everyone
that’s passing your body around is really mad at you in that moment. [drum music] Those are really overrated. Get your hand down there in a plastic bag and pick it up yourself. Owning an animal is a responsibility and it’s also, it’s a job. Well, for most people
it’s not a full-time job, but it’s a least, it’s a fun job. I’m not saying picking
up poop is fun for me, but I think a pooper scooper, someone is making a lot
of money over something that could just easily be
done with a hand in a bag. [drum music] I mean, they’re actually underrated. They’re fun to buy. They’re fun to use. They’re communal, I
mean, don’t share them, but you can do the mask with your friends. They kinda feel good. I don’t know if they’re doing anything, but, you know, it’s fun to scare your dog by putting them on your face. You can’t put a price on that. [drum music] Oat milk is overrated
for sure, but I love it. It’s having a moment,
the moment feels too big, considering it’s just an oat. We were eating oatmeal for years. No one cared. Sure, it’s good to lower your cholesterol, but no one was making a big deal about it. No one was pouring oatmeal into coffee and calling it a new invention. And it’s everywhere. I ordered an oatmeal
cappuccino the other day, and they’re like, “Oh, an oat cap?” The oat milk lobby is so mad right now. But it’s true, oat milk is overrated. It’s taking up a lot of energy and space, and even the fact that I’m
talking about it right now and I’m gonna make this my longest answer, means that it’s overrated,
but I also love it. But I’m willing to embrace
something that’s overrated, and I’ll drink every day
for the rest of my life. Oatly, please send me free oat milk. Here’s my address. It’s one. [drum music] That’s underrated because
I’m pigeon-toed. [laughs] Okay, so when I was a kid, I had to wear leg braces. I’m sure this doesn’t exist
anymore, I was born in 1910. Your feet are like this,
and they put braces on. For a while I couldn’t walk. I just pulled myself
around with my upper body. I have great upper body strength. I mean, you should see these guns. But after that I had to wear
a shoe with a bar in it. Now, these are not attractive shoes. A lot of people, when you have a shoe, you don’t want anything in
between except the ground, but I had a bar. But it’s underrated
because look at me now. Pigeon-toed and proud of it, okay. Let’s embrace it. I don’t need a hashtag. I just need some respect. [upbeat drum music]

  82. Lauren Neher says:

    Big fan of this

  83. Yuliya Blokhina says:

    Carrie is so beautiful, graceful & charming. She has a lovely clear voice too. I felt so sad that they made her wear that nasty orthopedic shoe to correct her foot when she was a child. I did notice that she was pigeon-toed when I was watching Portlandia. However that irregularity only adds to her charm. This is totally the case when a supposed "defect" makes person more attractive and endearing.

  84. Ruthy says:

    Carrie is hillarious Love her
