Many things have been said about WikiLeaks’ enigmatic front man Julian Assange. He’s been called a “terrorist,” a possible Nobel Prize candidate, “man of the year,” rapist, sex symbol, and “disco king.” But, did you know that he’s also…DUH DUH DUUUUUH…a kind of crappy houseguest? Allison Silverman, the former head writer and executive producer of The Colbert Report heard the story from a couple of friends who actually hosted the international lightning rod. So, what else was she going to do than buy a white wig, get a camera, and film a reenactment.
The video features recordings of the people involved telling the tale (an “absolutely true story,” promises Silverman’s YouTube page) of their time sharing an apartment with the pre-famous Assange. The stories recount how Assange took up the whole couch, ate pasta that wasn’t his, didn’t leave when he was supposed to, and even took a shower with some random girl he brought over (played in the reenactment by Silverman herself). It’s all charmingly goofy stuff and further proof that, when you have a figure as outlandish as Assange, pretty much anything involving him is inherently entertaining.
