ICP Amused By Saturday Night Live Juggalo Skit

via the Detroit Freepress

During this past weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” episode, Insane Clown Posse rapper Violent J’s phone was ringing off the hook.

The reason? “SNL” featured a spot-on parody of an infomercial created earlier this year by the Detroit rap duo for its Gathering of the Juggalos event, an annual weekend-long, over-the-top extravaganza of music and other assorted mayhem.

Violent J’s reaction when he saw the skit?


The original Gathering of the Juggalos infomercial — which was unveiled at the group’s Web site about a month before the 10th anniversary of the event this past August — stars Violent J’s girlfriend Sweet Suga Slam and the group’s DJ, DJ Clay, while a monster-truck-styled voice narrates with a distinctly outrageous ICP flavor. The infomercial brags about a seemingly endless list of musicians, wrestlers and carnival-style fun that were to be featured at the Gathering.

“Right when we posted it, we saw that it was getting a lot of views,” Violent J said. “Then it was featured on the G4 network’s ‘The Attack of the Show.’ They made fun of it, too.”

Then came the “SNL” skit, which has had the Web buzzing — and folks comparing the parody to the original.
