    Default "you take an average guy...." (mike)

    not sure if this has ever been discussed on here before, but is there any reason why every time VH did poundcake live, sam would make a point of singling out mike for the "you take an average guy" line?

    this just randomly occurred to me the other day, and sure enough looking at all the live poundcake vids on youtube, he does it



    (1:36)


    (1:36)


    (1:44 this time mike reacts)



    (1:46) this one is the motherlode. sam walks up puts his arms around mike and soon as he says 'average guy' then apologises to mike "sorry old buddy"...sorry that you're so average?

    I can see it's clearly supposed to be a light hearted joke, but is it really? mike's not one of the magnificent VH bros or the phenomenal lead singer, so he's just the 'average guy'? That's a pretty harsh joke imo. especially considering the full line is "you take an average guy / he can't identify"...

    thoughts?

    btw I'm neither a Sammy basher nor a Mike flag waver, but I find this a bit weird. lol

    Mike is a class act.

    I, too, am an average guy, and Samuel Hagar can go fork himself. He's just a big meanie.

    fair enough, but that doesnt explain why mikey should be singled out though...

    besides, what "average guy" has his own custom range of hot sauces?

    Because it's the image he projects and has cultivated. Nothing to see here.

    Probably just referenced back to the camera going to Mike on the official video.

    Food for thought....

    Do you think when Mike and Ed shared the same Microphone, while singing back up, they did that on purpose because they disliked the smell of Sammy's breath, and were trying to single him out of the fun Ed and Mike were having?


    While we'er on the subject, I have other thread ideas:

    Why did Ed have ten fingers?
    Was Mikey's JD Bass actually made from glass?
    Why did Sammy paint those shoes on LWAN?
    Alex hated when Ed did all those Horsey pinched harmonics because it caused temporary ear drum paralysis in Al's left ear.
    How come Ed got to build 5150 at his house and Al didn't?

    Technically, Mike is not average. I think average height for an adult American male is 5'10". Or roughly Gary Cherone's height. Mike, Ed, and Sammy are all below average height. So yeah I'm not sure why Mike gets singled out, unless maybe Sammy is referring to his schwantz. What an interesting thread.

    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    Time remaining on this thread. I say, 2 hours, maybe?

    HH<------I'm sorta with Fontcow on the, "Ed with 10 fingers" idea. Any one willing to open the floor up for debate on this issue?-------------
