After Pete Buttigieg divulged his affection for Rebel Wilson comedies, what can we learn from the cinema, music and Tv selects of the other presidential prospects?
This is a crucial time for the 2020 Democratic candidates. It’s a crowded subject full of big names, and it’s going to make real act and originality if anyone wants to stand out from the skirmish. But luckily Pete Buttigieg knows exactly how to do this: by targeting his expedition hard towards followers of Rebel Wilson.
In an interrogation with the Hollywood Reporter, Buttigieg laid out his pop culture favourites for all the world to see. He watches Rick and Morty to fall asleep, for example, and he’s trying to get on board with Succession, except” I haven’t decided if any of them are good people “. But when asked about the last film he saw theatrically, he stopped before eventually admitting it was Isn’t It Romantic or, as he announced it,” That movie where the maiden wakes up and she’s in a romantic slapstick “.
See, Rebel Wilson followers? Pete Buttigieg is just like you. Sure, he might not have knowledge of Rebel Wilson’s list, or the film’s mention. And he may not have shown any sort of opinion about the content of the film. But, certainly, who has? By half-remembering that he went to see a mediocre Rebel Wilson cinema eight months back, Buttigieg has only managed to align with himself with the public. Maybe we all experience Isn’t It Romantic in February and can’t really remember anything about it? How would he know?
So know that we know as much about Pete Buttigieg as we could ever hope to know, what about the other candidates? What do their pop culture preferences tell us about them? Let’s find out.
