Since we were so busy during the week talking about the actual episode of “Duck Dynasty” that aired on A&E, we figured that now would be the best time to actually showcase some of the other highlights that came out from an elaborate talk-show circuit the cast did earlier in the week. We are sure that doing press is a part of the contract that includes $200,000 an episode for the family, and the first video below from “Live! with Kelly and Michael” is some of what we’re talking about here.
First of all, we kind of feel for some of the Robertson guys when it comes to the fact that their most recognizable feature makes them very different than your average celebrity. You can’t cover up a giant beard like you can part of your face or a hairstyle, so these guys are completely hounded by fans everywhere they go. Do they get paid for it? Sure, but you know that press tours probably are not the sort of thing that guys like Si and Jase would probably want to be doing over in Louisiana.
The interview itself is actually really funny, with the only exception to that being Michael Strahan’s repeated emphasis of the words “I hear” during his interview questions, almost like this gives him some sort of freedom to be wrong where no one will get mad at him later on for.
Meanwhile, the second video comes to us via “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and to put it in simple terms, it’s just a funny little skit about what happens if the tables were turned on “Duck Dynasty.” There are no cast members that appear in it, but it’s still pretty funny.
In case you missed the news about “Duck Dynasty’s” ratings for the premiere earlier this week, check it out here. You will feel as stunned as a duck surviving the holiday meal season.
