Trevor Moore of ‘The Whitest Kids U Know’ Talks ‘Drunk Texts’ & Tom Hanks Being an ‘A**hole’
Trevor Moore sends more drunk texts than the normal person. They are usually offensive, odd and just plain bizarre. Luckily, he only ever sends them to himself.
"I’m pretty good about sending them to me," he explained, "I don’t drunk dial other people, I just drunk dial myself."
In fact, the founding member of 'The Whitest Kids u Know' sketch comedy group has sent himself so many odd texts that he decided to release an album of songs. The title track is obviously 'Drunk Text to Myself,' where he reads back the texts over musical samplings by another comic -- the hilarious Reggie Watts.
Moore talked about his new album along with other topics such as the likeability of a certain famous actor, the Vatican and how he ruined Christmas.
No, he’s a nice guy.
I was just kind of noticing how he’s like, the most beloved actor. Everyone seems to have nothing but positive things to say about him, and then I was just kind of laughing at the idea of just slandering the man.
No, not yet. I’d love for him to do the music video, though.
I feel like he’s got a reputation for being such a nice guy, and he supposedly has a great sense of humor, so it was something on my mind while writing the song. There’s no way he’d do the music video.
That would be pretty amazing. It definitely could have been the theme song for the popes we’ve had previously.
Yeah, it’s a little much. But how we pick our president is pretty ridiculous as well. I actually wrote the pope song at the Vatican. I was on vacation. I had never been there before. Just about everything is gold, and they sell official merchandise right outside the Sistine Chapel. It’s all crazy.
The merchandise itself wasn’t so bizarre. I think little bottles of holy water were bizarre to me. They’re basically travel bottles, like an airline would give out. Holy water on the go.
No, I think it’s underneath the amount that you’re allowed to have. I wonder if they did it on purpose. As if it was decided in a meeting. “Well, we have a lot of American tourists here, so we’re going to have to drop the amount of holy water.”
He’d be an awesome pope actually. If they’re trying to change the image of the Catholic church I think Tom Hanks would probably be a good pick for that.
They do not like the stuff that I’m doing.
No, I’m kidding. I went home for Christmas and they wanted to see some of the album and I showed them the Pope Rap, because that was all that was done. It ruined Christmas.
They’re all real. I am a chronic texter when I’m drinking. I use my phone basically as my refrigerator to-do list. I’m constantly texting myself ideas or notes and reminders, and then the next day when I wake up and I look at this stuff I’m like “What is this nonsense?” I thought it would funny to turn them into a song so I grabbed all the texts that were ridiculous and Reggie Watts came in with awesome samplings and beat boxing underneath.
No, I’m pretty good about sending them to me. I don’t drunk dial other people, I just drunk dial myself.
Tom Hanks or the Pope.
Well right now they’d both probably say “You’re an a**hole.”
