      This video really points out how absurd censorship is. They bleep out b!tch and the F bombs but leave in Kevin talking about his mom getting moist at the thought of sleeping with his deceased father. (19:40 - 20:07 ) Which is more offensive: sentiment expressed or the words themselves? Preposterous!

            You know Yahoo, you could improve the sound and replace it without having to re-upload. YouTube allows you to do that!

                Kevin will be 80 yrs old and still dressing like he is a high school douche bag. Raising his eyebrows and nodding his head up and down in falacio affirmation.

                    The thing that is so wrong with this interview is we don't get to see that scar on the groin area.
                    That would be all talk and no pants plus groin scar equals interview.

                      next film.... Jay and Silent Bob are abducted by aliens and rescued by superheroes only to fall into the matrix and slide down the back of godzilla only to be kicked out of cyber space by Trump's shape shifting lizard alien toupe. DO IT.

                        hey Yahoo stop bleeping people when they are talking.
                        It's more offensive than the language so just stop that extremely offensive noise ok?

                            the movie was barely about jay and silent was about shitty non funny ugly girls.

                                Great interview! But a note to production, remix the audio. It’s annoying to hear one person in the left ear and one in the right. Mix it to toward the center.

                                  Polowy needs interview training.

                                  He keeps making sounds like, "Uh-huh", "Yeah," "M-hm," etc.

                                                No Kevin. Not showing the Walrus is NOT what made Tusk poorly received. It was Justin Longs GARBAGE performance.

                                                  It's the internet, guys.
                                                  For pity's sake.
                                                  Really with bleeping the swears?
                                                  I get it: kids might watch.
                                                  Give a warning:
                                                  some adult language ahead.
                                                  Not for the faint of heart.
                                                  Or the very young.
                                                  Put the kids to bed first.
                                                  It's tiring having to put up with the bleeps.

                                                          Even his heart attack didn't make him rethink his dress code, Still dresses like shit, must spend a to of time deciding what to wear to look like he doesn't care what he looks like... great guy though. Love his point of view on life in general.
