  1. So, I watched “The Tennant 2.” I’m assuming that the misspelling of the word “tenant” in the video description, but spelling it correctly in that actual title screen is an intentional reference to David Tennant, the 10th Dr. Who, which gives an added dimension to the performance art piece that Alan has posted here.

    I’ll explain the plot of this video and its sequel for those who didn’t get it. Through an LSD and mescaline induced lucid dream, Jon goes back in time and learns that he is is own grandfather and, being disturbed and shocked by that fact, determines that he must kill his past-self in the future.

    Upon learning that his past-self has already died in the past (making it impossible for Jon to kill his other-self in the future and that his present self does not actually exist, the classic time-travlel paradox), he confronts his parents for answers.

    Jon then learns that he is actually a clone of his mother but that his mother’s superfluous X-chromosome was replaced with the Y-chromosome of the man known as Jim Stoffer (who is actually JKF).

    The “tenant” they fear awakening is given away right at the beginning with the “whisper chant” that we hear, quote: “Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn” which of course means “In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.” Jon is horrified to learn that the purpose of his cloned non-existence is that JFK has been trying to recreate a star-spawn of Cthulu using genetic time-manipulations.

    The fire going out represents castration. Not too sure on that. Someone else will have to explain that if they can. THUS SAYETH THE PROPHECY!!!

    1. And there I was thinking this was just an excuse for Jon to spoon with his dad. Thanks for clearing it up for me.

  2. “Who undid my pants?” — Underrated acting, right there. Also, Lisa’s brief appearance around the 0:58 mark was really a nice touch. Keep up the good work, Stoffer Family Productions!
