HI, I'M TODD GLASS.
PEOPLE ALWAYS SAY THINGS
WERE SO MUCH BETTER BACK
IN THE DAY. WHAT DOES
THAT EVEN MEAN?
WHAT ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT?
ARE THEY, TAKING IN TO
CONSIDERATION THE WAY
WE TREATED CERTAIN
GROUPS OF PEOPLE.
SO WE'RE GOING TO GO
OUT INTO THE STREET, AND
ASK PEOPLE, YOU KNOW IF
THEY THINK WE SHOULD GO
BACK TO THE WAY IT USED TO BE.
THEN TELL THEM SOME
THINGS THAT WERE GOING
ON BACK THEN, AND SEE IF
THOSE FACTS ALTER THEIR
OPINION.
(CAR HONKS)
FUCK YOU!
(WALTZING MUSIC PLAYS)
DO YOU THINK IT WAS
BETTER BACK IN THE DAY?
UM, YES DEFINITELY.
WE WERE BETTER.
SOMETIMES YOU MIGHT
SAY TO PEOPLE GOODNESS, I
WISH WE COULD GO BACK TO
THE WAY IT USED TO BE.
YEAH.
YEAH, I THINK SO.
OK, I'M JUST GOING TO READ
TO YOU A FEW THINGS
THAT WENT ON BACK IN
THE DAY. AND YOU TELL ME IF
YOU STILL FEEL THAT WAY
AND YOU MIGHT, AND I RESPECT
THAT.
'S THE US GOVERNMENT PLACED
,000 JAPANESE AMERICANS
INTO RELOCATION CAMPS.
IN THE 1950S BLACK
PEOPLE HAD TO RIDE
ON THE BACK OF THE BUS.
BEFORE 1963, THERE
WAS NO LAW THAT STATED THAT
WOMAN HAD TO
HAVE EQUAL PAY.
BEFORE 1975, CHILDREN
WITH HANDICAPS DIDN'T
HAVE EQUAL ACCESS
TO EDUCATION IN PUBLIC
SCHOOLS.
IN THE 1980S, THEY WERE
GIVING THE COMEDIAN
GALLAGHER TV SPECIALS.
DO YOU THINK THAT WAS
NITPICKING AND IT WAS
STILL A BETTER TIME?
YEAH, I THINK SO.
(SOMEONE SNEEZES)
BLESS YOU.
BLESS YOU. THANKS FOR
FUCKING RUINING A GOOD INTERVIEW
YOU PILE OF SHIT.
WHAT YEAR WOULD YOU
WANT TO GO BACK TO WHEN WE
WERE MORE DECENT TO
EACH OTHER AS PEOPLE PER SE?
.
? YOU THINK IT WAS
A BETTER TIME?
NOTHING LIKE SOMEONE
THAT'S DUMB AND IN A HURRY.
WHAT YEAR WOULD IT BE IF
YOU WANTED TO GO BACK TO
IF YOU PICKED A SPECIFIC YEAR?
A SPECIFIC YEAR, I COULDN'T
TELL YOU A TIME ERA.
S AND 60S.
IF RIGHT NOW WE COULD
IMPLEMENT SOME OF THE
RULES THAT YOU WOULD
HAVE TO FOLLOW BACK THEN
RIGHT NOW, WOULD YOU
BE OK WITH THAT?
RIGHT NOW, OF COURSE I
WOULDN'T BE OK. WE'RE
IN THE 21ST CENTURY SO...
I WOULDN'T BE OK WITH IT
BUT IF IT WAS GUMPTION.
THAT'S CRAZY.
(SINGS) WHAT KIND OF FOOL AM I?
(SOMEONE SCREAMS) SHUT UP!
NOW WOULD YOU WANT TO
GO BACK TO THE DAY BEFORE WOMAN
HAD THEIR RIGHTS OR AFTER
WOMAN HAD THEIR RIGHTS?
WELL SINCE I'M A WOMAN I'M
GOING TO SAY AFTER
THE WOMAN HAD THEIR RIGHTS.
BUT MAYBE BEFORE SOMEBODY
ELSE GOT THEIR RIGHTS?
PERHAPS.
WERE WE A LITTLE MORE
DECENT TO EACH OTHER BACK THEN?
I'M FROM NEW YORK.
IT WAS NEVER DECENT.
WE'LL BLUR HIS FACE, NOT
BECAUSE HE WOULDN'T GIVE US
A CONSENT, I JUST
THOUGHT HE WAS UGLY.
I THINK NOW IS PRETTY
MUCH THE GOLDEN AGE TO
DO WHAT THE FUCK
YOU WOULD LIKE.
YOU'RE RIGHT, YOU'RE WRONG.
(MAKES A WRONG SOUND EFFECT)
BUT YOU THINK WHEN YOU,
ON A EVERY DAY BASIS
YOU CAN LAZILY SAY, HEY
WE SHOULD GO BACK TO THE
WAY IT USED TO BE, NOT
THINKING OF THE WAY SO
MANY PEOPLE WERE TREATED?
YES.
DO YOU THINK IN THE FUTURE YOU'LL THINK TWICE?
OH, OH YEAH.
CAN I GIVE YOU A HUG?
YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN.
YOU'RE THE FIRST PERSON.
HARDER.
(BIG SIGH)
WHAT DID WE LEARN TODAY?
UM, I GUESS WHEN PEOPLE
SAY THEY WANT TO GO BACK
TO THE WAY IT USED TO
BE THEY'RE NOT REALLY
THINKING IT THROUGH.
I THINK THE ONE THING,
THE MOST SHOCKING PART
OF THE DAY WAS A...
WHENEVER WOMAN, OR
BLACK PEOPLE, OR ANYBODY THAT
HAS BEEN A VICTIM OF
BEING JUDGED ON OTHER
THINGS OUTSIDE OF THE
CONTENT OF THEIR CHARACTER
AND SAY THEY WANT TO
GO BACK, I DON'T FUCKING
GET THAT.
SO THERE WE GO. GO BLACK.
PUT UP MY BOOK INFORMATION.
AND THERE WE GO.
BLINK IT UP.
STAY BLACK, AND BLINK
MY BOOK INFORMATION.
OK, CUZ THIS BETTER GO VIRAL, OR
FUNNY OR DIE CAN SUCK MY DICK.
