Whenever a celebrity, athlete, or politician dies we are always subjected to a lengthy retrospective of their career. However very rarely are we given a look at the career of some of the geniuses behind the scenes. The unsung heroes of Hollywood if you will. Today I want to make that injustice right with a look back at the career of Josh McDowell, the pedophile director.
McDowell had a long career, which many consider to be highlighted by his work on “Kids Say the Darndest Things” where McDowell enjoyed it when kids said totally inappropriate things. McDowell said of his work on the show, “There was nothing better than having a kid talk about where babies come from. It was orgasmic.”
He also worked on America’s Funniest Home videos. It is a little known fact that McDowell actually sent in the most “guy gets hit in the balls accidentally by kid” videos to the show. These were taken from his home movie collection and they were anything but accidents. “I had to do this to repress my feelings, it was either have the kids hit me in the balls by flinging a baseball bat or join the Catholic Church.”
It should also be noted that McDowell directed the movie “Powder” which explains a lot.
Personally though I would be remiss if I didn’t share what I think is the crowning achievement of McDowell’s career, a Chloraseptic commercial shot in the 90s.
Subversive. Dirty. And just plain wrong… That was the work of Josh McDowell, may he rest in peace or more probable may he burn in hell.
