This is the film the girls had to watch and the boys had to go to the gym and watch the other film!

Was there a Kerri Strug reference in the short? I may have missed one.

Not that I noticed. I’m thankful they didn’t go with any masturbation jokes when the gymnast demonstrated how to mount the beam.

Yes. A lot of opportunities for off-color jokes and they dodged them all, for which I am grateful and impressed.

Even when the narrator said “straddle.”

The short is fairly standard stuff (A monotone voiceover drones about a random subject in crazy detail) but it’s also loaded with frequent pauses. This gives Emily and The Bots plenty of opportunities to get in some great longform riffs! They also got fairly musical in this one too!

Overall, Balance Beam for Girls was a very funny, well riffed short!

Another great reminder why I’m so glad MST brought shorts back into the fold!
