Stefan Molyneux’s Secret Life as a Hot Babe Who Loves Stefan Molyneux

In the comments section to philosopher-douchebag Stefan Molyneux’s review of Frozen, a self-described “attractive young woman” posts a review of his hour-long review that is so effusively positive that it almost sounds like it was posted by the man himself.

Oh, wait: he did post it himself.

Can this be real? I mean, it is real; I just went and got the screenshot. But is it really possible that Mr. M tried to sockpuppet in the comments to his own video, posing as his own biggest fan? Or did some worshipful young hottie sneak onto his laptop when he wasn’t looking and post the comment? What kind of “philosopher” does that? Did Jean-Paul Sartre send love letters to himself? Did Kierkegaard leave gushing messages on his own answering machine?

I think we can safely say “no,” at least to the latter, given that Mr. K died in 1855.

But what the hell, Stefan? I eagerly await your two-hour video explaining this one.

Also, if you could explain why my cell phone keeps randomly beeping, that would be great too. It’s really annoying.

(Thanks to everyone who sent this to me.)

UPDATE: I figured out the problem with my cell phone! Oh, and I have also been told that Stef’s self-congratulatory comment was actually a repost of a comment from someone else. He wasn’t pretending to be a young hottie. He was posting a quote from a young hottie without indicating in any way that it was a quote from someone other than him. Good job! So I’ve changed “written” to “posted” in the text above.

Now, though, I’m wondering if that person also wrote the comment that Stef used to introduce his video:

I mean, that has to be written by someone else, because what kind of arrogant douchenozzle would not only write about himself in the third person but also describe his own video as “must watch?” David Futrelle needs to know.

    (I still maintain that for all their flaws they’re far, far less harmful to readers than Twilight. And also free of the horror that is vampires playing baseball.)

    Oh yeah, I’d probably have felt very differently about ’em if I’d read them as a teen, no doubt. I certainly don’t see them as harmful, just sooooo not my thing – never liked Rice’s style and the given names of two of the main characters, being the same as two chaps very important to me, was a consant irritant (“Stop being such wimps, you two! Live up to your names!”) :)


    My life has been spared so much horror by not reading that stuff.

    The vampire baseball may actually have offended me even more than the unhealthy relationship dynamics. What’s next, having the werewolves pluck their eyebrows?

  4. I was most offended by vampires glittering in the sun instead of bursting into flames. No. Just no. Can not deal.

    I do recommend the Riff Trax version of the Twilight movies though. Those movies are such Mystery Science Theater material.

  5. kittehserf MOD

    I’ll say one thing for the glittery vampires idea, at least it led to this.

  6. Seriously David. You finding this must be equivalent to an archeologist finding a new dinosaur species in a dig! Priceless.

  7. RE: Kittehs

    Just made me think of Ken Branagh in his younger days.

    Oh lord, Kenneth Branagh. I swear to god, they couldn’t have found a better casting choice for Gilderoy Lockhart had the dude got up and walked out of the pages Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

    RE: WWTH

    I do recommend the Riff Trax version of the Twilight movies though.

    OMG YES. We watched the Twilight Rifftraxx at me and hubby’s bachelor party and it was GLORIOUS. Also created catch-phrases for the rest of our wedding (“you can’t be one of us! You’re not pretentious enough!” and “sit down, have some plaid!” among others).

    Rule 63 Sock Puppet!

    “I am me
    And he is she
    And we are all
    Rule 63!”

    All I can say is if you use the words “Twilight” and “Sparkle” in the same sentence, you’d better be talking about a purple unicorn who lived in Ponyville Library.
