Much to my excitement, MTV Canada has been airing Dan Levy’s Holi-Do’s and Don’ts over and over. If you haven’t had the chance to watch it yet, there are a ton of great segments in the half-hour long show but more importantly the special emphasizes something I’ve always thought: Dan Levy and I need to be friends. And I’m not saying the same way I used to think that me and the cast of The Hilarious House of Dr. Frightenstein could be best buds, I can legitimately see Dan Levy and I hanging out, laughing at people and offering to buy each other drinks but really hoping the other doesn’t accept.
Does our blossoming friendship face road blocks? Absolutely. We’re in different cities and while we all know long-distance relationships are difficult, long distance friendships are even harder. You don’t have that intimacy that you have when you are in a relationship, so instead you have to rely on sharing Glee/Dawson Creek mashup videos on YouTube and playing online scrabble. But when you do get to hang out and reenact your favourite scenes from The Good Son, it just seems worth it, doesn’t it?
Not that I don’t think we can do it. A Dan Levy/Mike Morrison friendship would be good for everyone involved. I can help him when he feels like he is having a bad hair day and he can teach me to wear clothes that don’t feature the words: Old and Navy.
But I don’t want to put too much pressure on our friendship, it’s something that has to happen organically. I get that. Until then, make sure you check out his special, it will be airing all throughout the holiday break.
