Honestly this whole thing could be problematic for me, because I see this new getup and my third thought is, "Well now I'll have to go find a taxidermized crow for my next Halloween costume."
I have a feeling Johnny got very excited about this project. Yay, a new chance to wear crazy make up and a ratty wig and talk funny!!!! Dude, it even looks like he has new fake tattoos on his arms, which is just as much fun as real tats but with less commitment! (This from a woman with no tattoos.)
Johnny talks to a horse in this movie.
Sounds perfectly reasonable to me. I talk to a horse every day. Several times a day. Three different horses. I think I might talk to horses as much as I talk to humans. (I wonder if the horses ever wish I'd stop talking?)
He rides too. (Although to be fair I can't tell if that's him on the horse in this picture.)
If I happened to be there, the following words would happen:
"Okay Johnny, you're sitting up straight instead of leaning over and that's great. Next time I'd like to see you really relax your core, sink your seat into the saddle and push your heels down."
Then, in a complete contrast to how I usually act while coaching a rider, I would pass out.
This isn't the first time he's had to get on a horse when he shows up at work. He played a gypsy awhile back (did I even mention how much I wanted to be a gypsy ?)
...and he played a totally useless city boy who couldn't figure out the shaggy pony he was given as transportation.
So, let's recap this thing, shall we?
*JOHNNY ON A HORSE
So yep. I'm done. Happy Johnny Friday!
