What Is the Summer MixTape Festival?

Full cast, full house

I can think of few line-ups more off-putting than the one below. While I understand the nostalgia for 1990s acts like Dinosaur Jr and My Bloody Valentine, NKOTB is another matter. Plus, the Fray? Steel Panther?*

The great thing about this promo, though, is that copywriter Julian Stern seems to think this year's Summer MixTape Festival is pretty awful, too, so he decided to have fun with it. And the fest picked the perfect '90s host: Full House's Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) to crack wise about LL Cool J's abs and Snooki's baby.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I'm more than a little familiar with Full House—not by choice, mind you. In my other life, I'm a movie/TV writer, and my editor sent me most every season of the show to review, and so I did (hey, I got paid). If you ever gave the sitcom a watch, you may enjoy this video, too. Bonus: jabs at hipsters, ironic mustaches, and desert fests like Burning Man and Coachella.

* Kelly Clarkson gets a free pass, because I have a few friends who are fans.

Hat tip: Rolling Stone editor Evie Nagy, who tweeted, "Kimmy. Fucking. Gibbler."

chug wine! Would be better if they offered a shrimp & white wine tent.
