REMEMBER THIS GUY?


I remember the day we were all sitting around at Bob O Link and someone (can't really remember who) popped in a VHS tape with the worlds Dancing Outlaw scribbled in black magic marker on the side.
We were all fascinated by Jesco, the dude from West Virginia, who idolized Elvis, danced a funny dance, and insisted that his wife better stop a-frying those sloppy slimy eggs.

I was looking for a good film to watch on Netflix the other night, and guess what I found?
A new film about not only Jesco, but his entire family!
The wild thing is, Jesco was actually the least colorful out of the bunch!

The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia is unwatchable at times, (though I watched the whole damn thing) and infuriating at other times (witness one White do a line of coke in the hospital minutes after giving birth) but all and all, a very worthwhile hour and a half of entertainment.
