Next year, Odd Future will have an Adult Swim show called “Loiter Squad.” It’s being produced by not only Spike Jonze and Johnny Knoxville, but also Jeff Tremaine’s Dickhouse Productions, known for its work with other shows like “Jackass” and “Wildboyz.”
Of course, “Squad” will be heavy on the mischief and the pranks. One prank, detailed by OF associate Lionel Boyce (who writes a column for LA Weekly), saw Boyce and Tyler, the Creator dress up as professional tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams. The duo took to a tennis court and, in the words of the Orlando Sentinel, “royally punked” excited tennis fans. Read some of Boyce’s account below, and check his whole piece here. [P4K]
They said there was a big crowd of people, waiting on the arrival of the Williams sisters. I peaked around the corner to see everyone, and a couple of people cheered a little. I guess from a distance our costumes looked pretty real. Tyler had on a white tank top, a pink skirt and a wig with individual braids and beads in it. I had on a curly, blond wig, a padded tank top and pink tennis shorts…The closer we got, the more people realized it wasn’t the Williams sisters — it was just two big black guys dressed up like them.
