Reality Show About Koreatown Seeks Asian Guidos, Nicolas Cage-Types
You might not be The Situation, but we know you're out there: Spikey hair, Orange Crush tan, low-riding BMW M3, chiseled arms (24 Hour Fitness on Wilshire), A/X sleeveless t-shirt, fake Panerai. And you can rap. You're an Asian-American guido. And a reality show about the real Koreatown is looking for you.
According to this Craigslist posting, a production company is " ... looking for interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-Americans to cast in a reality show similar to JERSEY SHORE, REAL WORLD, THE HILLS, etc. We need attractive Asian-Americans with lively, strong, and unique personalities between the ages of 18 to 30 with equally interesting life stories and perspectives to share, especially individuals who know about and/or experienced the Koreatown life."
And by Koreatown life they mean plenty of green-bottle late nights singing "Bounce With Me" with the homies.
And, hey, all you white-boy, Asian-girl skirt-chasers shouldn't feel left out: There might be a part for you. "If you are not Asian but are obsessed with Asian culture or people in some way, email us and please explain," reads the post.
We know just the guy. His name is Nicolas Cage. And, apparently, he could use the gig.
