Nardwuar Interviews Alex Burrows


Nardwuar the Human Serviette is one of those love-him-or-hate-him kind of guys. He can be a bit annoying and more than a little twee, but there's definitely no disputing his originality as an interviewer. His unique style has earned him international acclaim, and it's always worth a mention when he sits down with someone. With that in mind, here is a recent interview he did with Alex Burrows.

Even if you find Nardwuar a tad off-putting (like Alex Burrows does, for instance), there's one thing you can never dispute: the guy definitely does his research. He asks Burrows questions about his QMJHL days, his stint in the broadcast booth, obscure Canucks history, and Burr's last NHL fight, which was with Dan Hamhuis. I had completely forgotten about that.

That said, the interview is still awkward as all Hell, because it's Nardwuar. Consider this exchange:

Nardwuar: Tom Larscheid! Bingo Bango...
Burrows: Luongo.

Yeah, not a lot of chemistry there. At least Burrows nailed the "doot doot" in the signoff. Try to ignore how cringy the clip can get at times, because Nardwuar also produces some remarkable gifts for Burr from a backpack full of Canucks memorabilia. Have you ever wondered which former Canuck goaltender has his own pump-up record? Have you ever seen the obscenely poseable Roberto Luongo figurine? Nardwuar and Alex Burrows have got you covered.

Thanks to the Bulies who pointed us to this (especially Michael, who e-mailed us a link). Our apologies for a painfully slow response. We fail.

  3. I found this right after watching the Burrows/Bieksa ESPN thing from a couple weeks back...I had a few good laughs, at the fact burrows actually kept going along with it... but I had used most of them up in the other one.

  4. Burrows hung in there like the good sport he is. I'm surprised there wasn't any chirping, though. I hope he recognizes just how cool (and valuable) those gifts Nardwuar gave him really are.

  5. can be included. The fact is, most grains are quite high in glycemic index, meaning that they make your blood sugar go up rapidly,
    and send you crashing down soon thereafter. Grains, salt,
    processed oils, legumes, and any other food that is not available
    yet during the said era are not including in this special type of diet.

  16. Natural remedies are deemed highly efficient, cost effective, and significantly safe to use.
    Include about three to 4 tablespoons of vinegar to a bathtub stuffed with a tiny sum of warm h2o and only bathe
    in it for fifteen to twenty minutes. Apple-cider vinegar
    diluted in water kills yeast and provides temporary relief.

  18. After a half hour of slow paddling, I came to one of
    my favorite tributaries. They are comfortable, they do
    not get too hot, they provide protection from various hazards
    such as my gravel road, and unlike some competitors they are not prone to
    smelling bad. It is VERY important that adults bring actual swimwear to wear in
    the water park.

  19. Keep the sacrifices they've made in mind, and take the time to embrace the understanding of how much these people must love you to have traveled so far for your wedding.
