Nonsense Syllables and Politeness

So, I went to see Finding Nemo with myself a few weeks ago and this trailer came up.  At the time I believe we were talking about nonsense syllables, or one of my other classes was.  While I was watching it, I was thinking about our Doing Things with Words discussions and I got really excited to be being scholarly outside of class.  Anyway, I wanted to run home and post if for all of you because a. I think it’s hilarious, and b. it seems about 40% relevant to class.  Of course, I forgot, because I’m silly.

But then tonight I remembered! And I went back and watched the trailer again and it’s still hilarious.  However, now it also has something to do with politeness! In the beginning, it seems like there is some negative politeness to save the face of the band, but by the end, he’s just had too much.  I could be completely off base here, but you still get to see (what I think) is a very cute and funny video!
