Shelley Duvall says, "Hello, I'm Shelley Duvall," over and over

In "HELLO, I'M SHELLEY DUVALL !," a short video edited by Goddessshelleyduvall, Shelley Duvall repeatedly says the words, "Hello, I'm Shelley Duvall," while wearing a variety of outfits, for 55 seconds. If you don't understand what's great about that, you should try watching it. Mesemerizing.

HELLO, I'M SHELLEY DUVALL ! (Thanks, Fipi Lele!)

  1. Awesome how in the forest scene she paused between “Hello” and – I can’t remember the next line – but it was cool!

    1. No, watch that shot again. Without the pause, she’d have been saying “I’m Shelley Duvall” from behind a tree. Not good television.

  2. Ms. Duvall was on the children’s VHS-tape bandwagon long before Barney & the others came along. About her time the kiddie tapes were atrocious things. Think kids in 80s clothes & colors method-acting their way through a self-written moral story. Oh, and with forgettable public domain music thrown into the mix as well. She turned that drivel into something better and raised the bar for others. Cheers to Shelley Duvall! 

    1. Never mind the auto-tune; from the point where she closes her parasol she starts laying down one hellacious groove for a stretch there.  I wanna hear someone stitch together some of Robin Williams’ Popeye mutterings over that beat.

      1. I wanna hear someone stitch together some of Robin Williams’ Popeye mutterings over that beat.

        When Popeye came out, one reviewer described Ms. Duvall as miscast in the role that she was born to play.

        1. “…miscast in the role she was born to play.”  Ouch!  Reminds me of this comment:  “Mitt Romney is always perceived as the second best candidate, even when there is no first best candidate.” 

  3. Hi I’m actress Shelly Duvall. You might remember me from such educational films as “Lead Paint: Delicious But Deadly,” and “Here Comes the Metric System!”

  4. This is the stuff of nightmares.

    Imagine tossing and turning fitfully in bed.  You begin to sink in to a dream, any dream, but then suddenly, stepping through the door, or the window, or from behind a curtain:  “Hello, I’m Shelley Duvall,” jolting you back to uneasy wakefulness.

    Over and over and over again.  

  5. I’d like to see that mashed up with this meme: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/x-with-a-layer-added-every-second

    I’d do it myself, but I’ve got other fish to fry.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy…All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy…All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy…All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy…All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy…All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy…All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy…

  7. I saw “Popeye” in a 300-seat theater with three people in it. No one and nothing associated with that film could come away unscarred.  

    1. San Francisco was notorious for getting Broadway shows with all the Broadway actors removed. When it was announced that Lena Horne: The Lady and Her Music was coming to town, one critic wrote, “Really? Who’s starring in it?”

  8. Running “Hello, I’m Shelly Duval” through Bad Translator yields “Hello, my name is laidvuaer.”.
    I have no idea what a “laidvuaer” is, but I bet it has to do with giraffes.
