This makes absolutely no fucking sense at all. How this is fact, I will never know.
The U.S. Department of State of has apparently named Andrew W.K. the Cultural Ambassador to the Middle East.
I know. It can’t be real.
“This is a tremendous invitation,” W.K. said in a statement on his website. “I’m very thankful to the Department of State for giving me the opportunity to visit a place I’ve never been before. And I feel very privileged and humbled by the chance to represent the United States of America and show the good people of Bahrain the power of positive partying. I can hardly wait for this adventure!”
This is going to start some sort of international incident, I just know it. Andrew W.K. is crazy. This can’t end well.
W.K. will visit the Middle East “to promote partying and positive power,” his site says.
Pitchfork explains that “Andrew will begin his journey the first week of December” and that he “will visit elementary schools, the University of Bahrain, music venues, and more, all while promoting partying and world peace.”
This is a bad idea.
