Garth Brooks is quite the…interesting character. He’s got that theatrical way of speaking, usually about loving everybody and having fun and getting “physical” with music, or whatever weird stuff he manages to come up with during his bizarre Facebook live videos on Inside Studio G.
And he also cries a lot. Like, a lot. Some random person comments on Garth’s Facebook page that he “changed their life” and here come the waterworks.
Of course that’s not really relevant. Just pointing out that apart from being one of the biggest country stars of all time, he’s also kind of a weird dude.
But is he a serial killer?
Well, no, at least not that we know of. But that hasn’t stopped the comments on his Facebook, Instagram, and pretty much everywhere else asking where the bodies are and begging him to give the families closure.
If you’re not familiar with the internet meme by now, it all started when comedian Tom Segura and his wife Christina Pazsitzky saw the bizarre video that Garth released to announce his stadium tour back in 2018 – the one I mentioned earlier where Garth talks about “getting physical playing music.”
Anyway, that video led the comedian duo hosts of the “Your Mom’s House” podcast to come to the (inevitable, really) conclusion that Garth Brooks, Country Music Hall of Famer, 7-time CMA Entertainer of the Year, one of the greatest live acts in country music history, who sells out professional football stadium after professional football stadium, is a serial killer with bodies buried all over his backyard.
It’s become a hilarious internet meme, and every time Garth posts anything on social media the comments are immediately taken over by fans of Segura asking him where the bodies are, and praying that Garth have mercy on their grandparents.
And this has been going on for YEARS.
But what makes it even funnier is that Garth apparently doesn’t get the joke, with Segura revealing recently that Garth had even blocked him on Instagram:
“First I got word about a year ago from a 100% reliable source… I was like, ‘Does he know?’ And they’re like ‘Oh yeah, yeah. He knows.’ And I was like, ‘Is he upset?’
And they’re like, ‘He just doesn’t get it. Doesn’t know why you’re talking about him. I was like, ‘Okay.’
And then recently… he just blocked me on Instagram. And I was like, oh, he finally blocked me.”
Now, I feel like that was the worst thing Garth could possibly have done for the meme, because that’s just going to make people troll him that much harder. If he really wanted to put an end to all this, all he has to do is tweet “I’m not a serial killer” or something like that to prove that he’s in on the joke. It stops being funny, eventually dies out, and everybody moves on.
But that’s not how Garth decided to handle it, so the meme rolls on, and so do the relentless comments on social media every time Garth’s name is mentioned.
And this 1989 interview from Garth is sure to add some fuel to the fire.
Way back when Garth was a brand new artist, promoting his second single “If Tomorrow Never Comes,” a young Garth Brooks stopped by Crook and Chase to discuss his music, and a host of other topics.
But he may have accidentally let the mask slip…
When asked whether he’d ever like to get into acting, Garth had a response that may have hinted at his dark side:
“I told them if they ever need somebody to be a bad guy, which is weird, I’d love to be a bad guy.”
The hosts told Garth he looked like a “good guy,” but he didn’t back down:
“Ok, I guess. I’d rather kill somebody. That’d be fun.”
Oh really Garth? Fun you say?
Looks like Tom may have been on to something all along…
And it didn’t take long for Segura and his wife to put the pieces together either. Once they found the clip, Tom had a simple message:
