Andrew W.K. Attending ‘My Little Pony’ Convention, Is a ‘Brony’
In case you haven’t heart, “bronies” are adult male fans of ‘My Little Pony.’ Despite being far from the cartoon’s target audience, these grown-ups embrace ‘My Little Pony’s’ message of love and tolerance and pay tribute to their favorite show with elaborate video mash-ups and other pro- Brony (bro + pony) internet activity.
They also get together at ‘My Little Pony’ conventions like the one that will take place in Strongsville, Ohio between September 28 and 30. Among the speakers at the gathering will be party rocker Andrew W.K., who will be hosting a panel titled “In The Flesh: What Would Pinkie Pie Do?” Here is how his segment is described on the convention’s website:
Party party party, she wants to have a party! Pinkie Pie is certainly a party animal, but what happens when you can’t be a candy-colored pony in an Equestrian world? We break the fourth wall to present Andrew W.K., the artist behind hits “She Is Beautiful” and “Party Hard”, to answer the dire question: What Would Pinkie Pie Do? Join us for a look into how to make your job as fun as your party, and your party as important as your job.
Does this mean the man known for songs about debauched revelry is actually the most famous Brony of all? We think it must.
Although we don’t believe the Bronies will be truly happy until their beloved Matt Damon comes out as a fellow traveler.
