“I never expected #idiocracy to become a documentary,” screenwriter Etan Cohen tweeted Wednesday.
The comedy starred Luke Wilson as an average Joe who was forgotten about after selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program, and then wakes up five centuries in the future, which is full of stupid people.
More stupid people than there are now.
When a follower asked Cohen if he actually “kind of” thought America’s collective IQ would slip, the writer replied, “I thought the worst thing that would come true was everyone wearing Crocs.”
Terry Crews played outlandish President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho, and also referenced “Idiocracy” on Twitter.
