Nygaard: Gaffigan will make you chuckle

With finals coming up and my brainpower at an all-time low, I’ve decided to take a break from my normal politically focused columns to focus on something a little lighter: Jim Gaffigan’s new comedy special titled “Mr. Universe.” I want to convince you to buy this comedy special. Normally I’d just let you make that decision yourself, but I do not want you to miss out on this delightful bit of comedy.
P.S. If you don’t know who Jim Gaffigan is stop reading, access a computer, go to YouTube and type in “Jim Gaffigan Camping” (my personal favorite thus far) or “Jim Gaffigan Holiday Traditions”, watch the video and return. Although, truthfully you’ll probably never make it back to my article. You’ll end up watching numerous Gaffigan videos on YouTube and eventually going to his site and buying the special anyway. If that’s your path, have at it.
Before, I try to convince you to buy this, let me tell you about my path to purchasing this special. I was browsing Twitter, like I spend a lot of my time, and saw Jim Gaffigan tweeting about his new comedy special. Everyone should follow him because his tweets are pretty funny. Anyway, I went to his website just to see what the new special was all about. Once I got to the website, I watched the free sample clip about whales, which was hilarious. Then I found out it was only $5, and basically no restrictions on how the special could be used. It can be burned, watched as many times as you want, etc. By that point I was sold! I bought it and proceeded to watch the entire special immediately. It was hilarious!
Let me give you four reasons you should buy this one special:
First, the special is absolutely hilarious and who doesn’t like to laugh. From Jim Gaffigan, the man who brought us the Hot Pocket and Cinnabon sketches, he brings us a brand new, 75 minute comedy special that is truly hilarious. The new special contains hilarious sketches about vacations at Disney, the truth about exercising in the gym, the culture of McDonalds, whales, and Subway and Jared (you know Subway’s spokeperson). If you buy it and watch it you will laugh or you probably just don’t understand what’s funny. Your loss.
Second, the special is not available in stores, on TV or online. The only way to access it is by purchasing it online. If you do not purchase it you’re going to be missing out.
Third, the special costs only $5, which is what many of us spend on one drink every weekend or on coffee every week. I guarantee the comedy special provides you more value for your money than that double rum and coke or caramel macchiato you drink. Also, for that $5 you can download it three times in either SD or HD, stream it three times (on your phone for example) burn it, and watch it as many times as you want.
Fourth, and finally, $1 of that $5 goes to the Bob Woodruff Foundation to help injured U.S. service members. Not only can you laugh but a small portion of that money can go to help the people who are injured serving the United States.
That’s my best pitch. The choice is yours.
