Princess Diana Scream

Hi, does anyone have a link to the whole video of the guys who are watching television when Princess Diana is reported dead? I'd like to send it to someone. I tried searching here and on youtube and the only thing I can find is a 6 second clip of the one guy screaming. I'd like to find the whole thing.

For the life of me, I still don't understand why so many gay men got so worked up over her death. She was pretty but certainly not beautiful. She had no effect at all on our lives. She had no real talent.

I guess it's the soap opera-like aspects to her life.

I didn't manage to see this video the first time around, but I remember people talking about it. The guy stifling a laugh is pretty funny, but it's still a weird video in some respects - nice as a time capsule, but who's filming and why does he focus on the one really affected friend - hoping for a repeat of the scream, maybe?

R32 is my FAVORITE type of DL poster - the VOICE OF GOD THE MARY! She knows just how you deserve to die and where you deserve to suffer for all eternity because you offend her taste and discretion.

Never mind that presuming to judge in such a way - if she's a Christian - breaks the First Commandment and is a mortal sin, and - if she's gay - it breaks the commandment of camp, revealing her as a hissy cunt wearing a sauce of her own petulance-and-bile-inspired diarrhea in her foolish inability to understand absurd humor.

What I've always wondered, R24, is how the screaming queen reacted afterwards when he saw the video and realized his friend was struggling not to laugh at him. Possibly he took it in stride, but I suspect he was in high dudgeon. They should have taped the follow-up tears and recriminations for the sequel.

by Anonymousreply 5602/17/2012

A few random thoughts.

First, I just watched this again, listening to it with a headset on my laptop. I think I've suffered partial hearing loss from the scream because I forgot to turn down the volume.

Which one screamed? Never figured that one out.

Linden Soles (plastic man on CNN). That's a WEHT if ever there was one. Sort of good looking in a Madame Tussauds kind of way.

Barefoot guy. Cute. I'd do him.

Finally, on that fateful night. I was sitting for hours in a cold jacuzzi talking to a friend about his troubled relationship. Talked for hours. It was the desert in August so it actually felt refreshing. The water, not the conversation. That was exhausting.

Finally made it home, turned on CNN and learned that Diana had died. Shocking, unexpected and so sad.

Checked my voice mail. Ballys Las Vegas called. Liza has canceled for next weekend. That's when I screamed like a little girl.

I've mentioned this here before, but I still have not recovered from the cancellation.

His is the definitive expression of "clutching the pearls". He looks like he's shaking his head and mumbling, "If she doesn't make it, I-I just don't know I'm gon- whah-Uh-OHHH!!"

Diana visited AIDS patients and touched and hugged them at a time when AIDS hysteria was at its peak, gay men were pariahs and most public figures didn't want to be associated with anything involving AIDS.

No - Not only a "very camp man" would make that noise. No - projecting your stupidity on teenage boys doesn't reflect cognizance of teenage boys - but it's your apparent need to bring it up irrelevantly that causes offense.

Note, too, that the smirker also was overtaken in the moment, and the smirk - from the fellow who announced the death to the group - was as much caught with the heightened emotion as tickled by the outburst of his friend.

Who else would, a woman with a very deep voice? OK, maybe it's possible a straight man could make such a noise, but only if, say, he got his balls caught on barbed wire.

[quote]No - you don't know how British people reacted the moment they heard the news.

Well I am British and I can remember when it happened.

[quote]No - you don't know what "camp" means.

I don't? So what does it mean?

Here we go with more attempts to equate same-sex attraction with embarrassing prissiness. You really are on a mission aren't you?

R148 When did I claim ALL gay men are like the man in the video? I know they're not all like that, but SOME ARE! OK?

He didn't tear up and he didn't cover his face. He brought his fist to his mouth after smirking if only to stifle a laugh.

Not OK. Your very clear point was that ONLY a gay guy would do that. You made it absolutely clear in r148's quote that a straight guy wouldn't do it.

I can't imagine a straight man screaming like that over the death of someone he's never met.

Not saying it couldn't happen, just that I can't imagine it.

r152, the correct answer is:

An effeminate straight man, yes. An effeminate gay man yes.

A normal gay or straight man, no.

by Anonymousreply 15301/03/2015

When have you ever seen an effeminate straight man?

by Anonymousreply 15401/03/2015

All the time r154. But your agenda of trying to link effeminacy with same sex attraction would lead you to lie and claim they're gay.

by Anonymousreply 15501/03/2015

Oh come on people, trannies and effeminates and such are neither gay nor straight. The go in the gender disordered category.

by Anonymousreply 15601/03/2015

R156 We're not talking about trannies.

r157, I distinctly read r156 to say "trannies OR effeminates."

I once had an online exchange with the guy who filmed this. Very sweet...and naive.

I think he was totally surprised that he got a ton of homophobic messages.

Diana was the most beloved human being in the history of mankind!

by Anonymousreply 16101/03/2015

I don't think he screamed for the camera. I think they were all sitting around playing cards and the camera was there. The TV was on and when CNN announced Diana had been in a car accident, the camera man grabbed the video and started taping the reactions. It happens all of the time now (look thru FB or instagram).

The guy was trying to catch his friend's reactions to the news. And did he! The Scream heard 'round the world!

This is the greatest thing since the wheel. I laugh every time I watch it.

Can you believe it's getting close to 20 YEARS since Diana died? It just doesn't seem possible that so much time has passed.

by Anonymousreply 16401/24/2015

R162 But back then it would have been more unusual. The internet was in its early days, there was no Youtube, uploading/downloading a video of that length would have been less than convenient.

I'm not suggesting it's fake at all, it's just funny how they decided to film it (they didn't know she was dead at first) and the cameraman didn't suddenly turn to look at the TV at the "Princess Diana dead" moment.

by Anonymousreply 16501/25/2015

Please, R165, they were auditioning for bit parts in the Lifetime made for TV movie!

I'm surprised Law and Order: Criminal Intent didn't do a "Ripped from the Headlines" episode playing up the murder conspiracy theory. Maybe they did, and I missed it. Whatever.......

I didn't cry for Diana but I did when they took my yacht away. Damn you, Tony and Gordon.

by Anonymousreply 16701/25/2015

R165, acquaint yourself with the concept of "home movies."

It's really not as unusual as you think.

They were just filming the get together.

I used to do this in the early days of video cams and that's what he was doing and then suddenly things started to happen.

I wonder what the screamer is doing today. Was he aware that he became something of an internet celebrity? has he been forever ashamed? did he take his show on the road?

all these questions!

How many of you are rehearsing your screams for that Bobbi Kristina moment?

Which one of you bitches wrote

"The sky was so blue that day"


"earrings. caftans"

I remember distinctly putting my hand over my mouth like people do when they hear something shocking.

It was a very, very sad thing.

by Anonymousreply 17502/01/2015

I remember someone in the youtube comments at one time claimed to know who these guys were and if I recall they even named the screamer and was defending him, but those comments don't seem to be around anymore. I guess it was the original youtube video that was taken down.

by Anonymousreply 17602/02/2015

I'd love to know what these guys are up to today.
