Web infomercial for Hedonism 2: Party on the beach will make you reach for eye-bleach

Why has this middle-aged gentleman ventured to Hedonism 2 in Negril, Jamaica more than 40 times, and what could possibly explain the fervent, amorous grind of his pastywhite sexytime speedo dancypantsing?

"The wild women, the wild women, the rippin' and the tearin', the rippin' and the tearin."

Update: Commenters say the fellow's name is "Hedo Rick," and he is a well-known fixture at the resort (which is said to cater to swingers and part-time nudists, as the name suggests).

(thanks, Richard Metzger)


  1. “The rippin’ and the tearin’. The rippin’ and the tearin’.”

    I have no desire to know what that means.

  2. Please post a link for a reputable commercial eye-bleach. Failing that, some liquid “Brain-O” will suffice.

  3. He doesn’t look like the pictures on their website.

    The rippin’ and the tearin’. The rippin’ and the tearin’.

    I think that it’s something like, “And your women shall rend their garments and tear their hair unto the last generation.”

  4. I think I threw up a little when he did that V mouth thing that I now want to forget. Please. I need to forget.

  5. I think he auditioned for the part of Doug on Showtime’s Weeds. Thankfully, he didn’t get it.

  6. Call your broker NOW. Dump your stock in this hot potato. It’s over. It’s a goner.

  7. What do you say to co-workers and family when videos like this go viral? Besides, “I’m very, very sorry?”

  8. You know that picture of Horrified Batman that gets around the interwebs? I MADE THAT FACE.

  9. Oh, the horror! Eye bleach? I don’t think that will erase the image. I’ll just have to pluck my eyes out.

  10. Well what can you expect when you name a resort Hedonism? This man is a Hedonist. He belongs there. I hope he stays. Probably all of Arizona hopes so too.

  11. Whenever I see someone being interviewed and they reach out to hold the mic in front of their mouth like that, I know there’s going to be some crazy.

    Grabbing the mic = used to having it pulled away quickly?

  12. Aaughhh!! My eyes!! OTOH the phrase “pastywhite sexytime speedo dancypantsing” has made my day.

    Ok, now time to inflict this on the rest of my social graph…

  13. I’m down with it. He’s going crazy having a good time. The fact he’s older and doing it makes it even better, because people always go on about how gross older people are, what you are too old to do, etc., and that must suck a bit. His appropriate response is to shake that ass right in your face.

    Rock on, sir.

    1. Trust me, if a young guy was bouncing about like that, doing the “v” thing with his tougue, I would be JUST as disgusted.

  14. Like you’re all going to stop acting like that once you cross over a certain age? Oh, I forgot, you are going to be one of the exceptions and you will remain totally cool even into old age. Even YOUR nose hairs will be cool.

  15. Bender: Look, I love life and its pleasures as much as anyone here, except perhaps you, Hedonism Bot. But we need to be shut off! Especially you, Hedonism Bot.

    Hedonism Bot: I apologize for nothing!

  16. I’m trying to craft a comment that expresses my reaction without putting anyone down. How’s this:

    This advertisement, while fascinating, fails to effectively market the Hedonism 2 event to my demographic.

  17. Definitely a self selecting group of people who go there.

    I don’t see this hurting their business at all. Helping it actually. Right now while you are going ewww there are people thinking “if he keeps having a *great* time there I ought to do pretty good”.

    A different tag line for this video could be “Grandparents need loving too”

  18. Even middle aged guys need some luv’n but this is crossing the line into scary territory.

  19. I’ve been reading Boing Boing for a couple of years now. I always enjoy the comments as well. Until today, I’ve not registered so that I could comment as well. Today, I finally felt compelled. And yet the only thing I can muster up in response to this…this…this…is….unhhhggghhhharrrrrrhhhhhhg….help…must…crawl…out…of…my…SKIN….aaaaawahhahahhahaha…..

  20. Conan, what is best in life?

    To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the rippin’ and the tearin’, the rippin’ and the tearin’.

    1. OK, so I wasn’t the only who somehow thought this guy’s endorsement could be worked into Conan’s words of wisdom. Thank you for following through with the legwork.

  21. Reading these comments just leaves me one thing to say: y’all are d*** funny.

    And a couple of thoughts. 1)Hedonism 2..why don’t they just called “Orgy in the sun”? I mean, let’s get to the point, right?; 2) Despite our horror at his ‘moves’, you know he’s gettin’ some every time he goes down there. Seriously, what man goes to a resort like that unless someone is putting out?!
