“His Karma Is Huge” Is Giving Me an Aneurysm

June 9th, 2008

Guru

The tagline for Mike Myers’ The Love Guru is so inane I want to track down whatever studio stooge coughed it out during a brainstorming session and kick him/her in the mouth. A parallel is being drawn between the Love Guru’s karma and how we describe the size of someone’s genitals. We’re told his is big. Huge, even. But karma isn’t like a penis. It doesn’t grow; one doesn’t doesn’t have a big or small or medium-sized karma. One has amounts of karma. “His Karma Is Plentiful” would work. “He Has More Karma Than Most People” is also OK in my book. One can’t have a huge karma. One can’t have a karma. One simply has karma. The tagline makes as much sense as “His Karma Is a Hanggliding Plumber” or “His Karma is ^^%&%$#Pooppooppooppoop&&**d.”

And even if it did make sense, what’s the hook? There’s no wordplay here. There’s no pun. No turn of phrase. There’s nothing. Here’s the train of thought that created it: “OK, guru, guru, India, Indian guy, Indian guru. What’s Indian? Naan, tandoori, Gandhi, smelly things, karma. Karma! Karma! OK, so he has a lot of karma. Dicks = funny. He has big karma. He has a big dick. Dick. Karma. Huge Karma. His Karma Is Huge. Yahtzee!” And as if that wasn’t bad enough, they’ve replaced the O in Love with a Love Guru graphic, just because they could. Why the fuck is it there? It’s baffling.
