Wendell: Cooler Than You Think?

Just hear us out.

Sure, Wendell is a judgmental shut-in with a tendency to lie for no reason, but that doesn’t mean he’s all bad. In fact, he’s got a few characteristics that might even make him downright endearing. Observe:

HE’S A MASTER OF ORDERING PIZZA

We’re all familiar with pepperoni pizza. Hell, we’ve probably even sprung for cheesy crust from time to time. But pepperoni and cheesy crust with a pineapple kicker? Look deep inside yourself and ask — really ask — if you have the gumption to take such a courageous culinary risk. Yeah, exactly. Point, Wen-Dawg!

HE’S GOT A SUPER COOL SWORD

A lesser man might feel silly or self-conscious making a music video that required him to wear an over-the-top costume and wield a medieval weapon. Not Wendell. Wendell commits, and all things considered (and oh man, are there lots of things to consider), he looks pretty decent swingin’ that bad boy around. No comment on whether he can actually produce balls of fire.

HE’S STRAIGHT-UP SENSUAL

Can you honestly tell us that Wendell’s description of eating pizza doesn’t get you a little hot under the collar — sexually? OK, fine. But still, not as horrifying and gross as you thought, right?

Our job here is done.
