On this week’s episode of Inside Amy Schumer, Josh Charles appeared in a sketch based on Friday Night Lights that’s based more on the revolutionary concept that rape is bad. Even at away games. Even if she’s dressed like a cat on Halloween.
In the sketch, Charles plays a new football coach at a high school who comes in with some pretty intense rules, one of them being “no raping.” The players are devastated by this development, looking for any reason they can to keep on raping. The townspeople aren’t wild about it either — I mean how else are the boys supposed to “blow off steam if they lose?”
“If you don’t like it, don’t let the door rape you on the way out.”
Of course Coach’s message gets a little muddled at the end: “Football isn’t about rape! It’s about violently dominating anyone who stands between you and what you want. You gotta get yourself into the mindset that you are gods and you are entitled to this! That other team? They ain’t just gonna lay down and give it to you — you gotta go out there any take it!”
Clear eyes, full hearts, don’t rape.
