Blow Out: ‘This is all for you Ash’
Pappa Antin loves his son, his sister and cuttin’ some hair.
This week Jonathan managed not to shed any tears- however, courtesy of a myriad soundbytes, he did teach us all a lesson or two about the value of family, the true meaning of Hickory Dickory Dock “Whoa man, that’s heav,y” and most notably, the importance of PERFECT… HAIR.
At the salon Jon is bombarded with good fortune : Sundance & new york fashion week, oh my! For his sake, I hope his next product is caffeine-infused pomade – the guy is spread thin, as we could all tell when he taped his eyes open and did a Zombie-esque hairstyling, mouse & jeuje – complete with spirit fingers.
Off to Sundance to sell (out of) Jonathan Product. Jon sings us all a jazzy & tear-jerkin’ Chet Baker meets Johnny Cash version of “itsy bitsy spider” for a nursery rhyme book reading. Celeb cameo: Marlee Matlin – she wants Jonathan to do her hair and he is stoked. She get’s a “whoosh whoosh whoosh,” her friend gets the “Bodiful Wave.” Jon totally hearts Oscar-winner Marlee, “Its all there, complete package – and more importantly, its all about perfect hair.”
Back in LA – in the middle of babing out a client, Jon’s sister calls to ask him to help her pick the next Pussycat Doll for the Las Vegas Lounge. Move over MK&A, the Antins are the newest power siblings, seriously. Jon’s a family man, folks, so with no hesitation, he calls and moves back all his appointments immediately. “I don’t HAVE to go help my sister today, I GET to go help my sister today.”
At the dance studio, Jon manages to only notice the hair on 100 girls writhing in their underwear, scolds the scantily clad ladies for not blow-drying “this is an audition, girls!” and spontaneously busts a few moves on his way out the door.
Back at the salon, Jon jams out to the Pussycat Doll smash, “Don’t Cha” on his cell phone while talking to his sister – who needs Jon to babe out the new Pussycat Doll with “the bomb hair” before her flight to Vegas in an hour. Jon, of course says “ok.” The hair is the bomb, and the show ends – as all quality shows must – with a spontaneous musical number. Jon and the Doll dance down the hallway to his “Don’t Cha” cell phone ring, and all feels right with the world.
