If you have ever wondered ‘What Would Diplo Do?,’ get ready for six episodes of Viceland’s latest show about some weird meta-parody Diplo played by Diplo himself. So, what the fuck is this gonna be like? Well, according to Deadline:
In WWDD, described as “Louie meets WorldStar HipHop crossed with This Is Spinal Tap, Van Der Beek plays a fictional version of DJ superstar Diplo in a collection of parables about life as told through the eyes of guy who can bring 60,000 people to their feet… but kind of sucks one-on-one.
Incredible. That used to Mariah Carey, but now she sucks both in person and on stage.
Honestly, as a bitter 54-year-old divorced dad in the body of a young woman, I have listened to way more Jethro Tull than Diplo, but even I am sold on this. Van Der Beek told Deadline:
“The show doesn’t take itself too serious but it’s not cynical.”
