"Either you fly this sleigh, or Seth Rogen becomes the next Santa and will replace you and the other reindeer with uninspired black stereotypes"
@ptitty1231, Alright. Which way to the sleigh?
@ptitty1231, there will be smoke when he appears alright but it won’t be from any chimney.
@ptitty1231, “remember, kids. It’s not bigoted when WE do it!”
@ptitty1231, uninspired black stereotypes or just all women reindeers
@ptitty1231, is this an actual movie or did you make it up?
@Have An Upvote, Santa Inc on HBOMax. Takes the entire joy out of Christmas and was basically despised by viewers and critics alike
Guess the elves are getting venison tonight.
You tell 'em. Get bent, Santa.
And then he lived out the rest of his days starving for food in the vast wilds of the north pole... Remember folks, sometimes life sh!ts on you, but dont hold that against life when there are opportunities. Santa never verbally abused rudolph even if the other reindeer did. That does not make him culpable.
@Jdasher5744, Fvck that. If you were constantly abused and the powers-that-be let it happen, get the fvck out of there and burn every bridge. Even if you end up worse off, at least it's on your terms. You don't owe them anything, and if they use your well-being as leverage, that's all the more reason to leave.
@SimonPetrikov, santa couldve easily strapped two flashlights or some magic high beams to the front 2 reindeer. Instead he gave rudolph an opportunity to be something. My real point here is be thoughtful and objective. Operating out of spite in the way you suggest doesnt help anyone and certainly doesnt change the way things are just because theyre on your terms. If youre going to be vengeful have a plan and execute swiftly with malice, prejudice, and precision to ruthlessly never let them respond or formulate an exit strategy if retaliation is too much.
@Jdasher5744, Fvck that too. No malice, no vengeance. You don't have to hate them or rally others against them, but you sure as hell don't have to help them either. As for being thoughtful and objective, what do you do when you feel your hand burning on a hot stove? You take your hand away. Same thing in an abusive situation. Not everyone CAN do that, but for those who are able, I think it's the best choice. And I'm well aware that we're overanalyzing a corny Christmas movie, but if we're addressing this from the "Rudolph was abused" perspective, my point is that yeah, Rudolph should walk away and let them figure shjt out.
@SimonPetrikov, then formulate an exit strategy. Abuse is a pattern not a one time hand on the stove situation. Why wouldnt you want to rally others against the behavior if it is a heinous as you say? Thats how ppl like weinstein remain in power for years. As for the over analyzing, kids are a$$holes and if funny names is being labeled abuse then that is doing a disservice to anyone who is actually abused. Its crazy spiteful and selfish to put this on santa when literally the point of the movie is that being of strong character and perservering through adversity while being true to yourself will eventually lead you to realizing your potential. How callous and short sighted is it to say," thanks but no thanks you let me get hurt by the mean reindeer." The only person responsible for rudolph's sarisfaction is rudolph and choosing to be spiteful doesnt help anyone; least of all himself.
@Jdasher5744, it takes courage to swallow ones pride sometimes, but in a situation like this rudolph is better for it.
@Jdasher5744, Santa told Rudolph's dad that he should be ashamed as soon as he saw that nose and stormed out. It was directed toward tha father but thats like telling a guy to be ashamed of his kid's cleft lip in front of him.
@Mantis Tobaggan, well this has gotten out of hand, but hey i started it so i own it! I went back and watched the scene. Rudolphs dad is more of an a$$ and the worst thing Santa says is and im paraphrasing," i hope he does grow out of his nose because he might not make the sleigh team." Then he proceeds to break into a song about jingling and bells which i think implies santa wants to be heard not seen on christmas. A little bigoted to write a kids future maybe, but hardly abusive. Id say its akin to looking at a tiny 5 yr old and saying you probably wont make (insert professional sports league) because you have said cleft lip and your short. If anything this further my point about being objectional. Santa had pre-existing bias, but when the need arose didnt hesitate to select rudolph as the best solution.
Rudolph the woke nosed reindeer...
Didn’t realize Rudolph was so bitch-made
“Tell it to your therapist, Rudolph. You gonna to help get all these reindeer back home in one piece or whine about being bullied forever?”
A simple “No.” would suffice. Dámn.
Did Santa bully him? I thought it was olive.
@werp zerp snickel, when Santa saw his nose he told the dad that he should be ashamed or something like that
But Rudolph, you are who you are now because of Santa.
