Robbin Stone became the subject of internet talk after appearing on Nathan Fielderthe small-screen social experiment of “Repetitionas a (briefly) co-parent in a parenting simulation. Now, Stone is participating in said talk, interacting with the show’s fans in a “Nathan for You Businessposting” Facebook group.
“You can laugh at me all you want. Enjoy it and just know that God always has the last laugh and God is not being laughed at,” Stone said in the group, named after Fielder’s previous Comedy Central show on Wednesday.
Stone appeared in the second episode of “The Rehearsal,” which follows series creator Fielder as he leads people through bizarre, high-budget simulations of real-life situations. Stone was swept up in a six-week child-rearing experiment alongside a woman named Angela, who tests parenthood with the help of dozens of child actors and a creepy robot baby.
In a video of himself posted to the group late Thursday night, Stone said, “Hey, what’s up in the ‘Nathan for You Businessposting’ group. I heard we got to 24,000 members. It’s drugs…keep it up.
He continued: “I’m just in the whip right now, on my way to get some mayonnaise [a reference to his episode of ‘The Rehearsal.’] And I’ll probably hit 100.
In the series, Stone mentions several times about crashing his Scion tC at 100 miles per hour – and finding himself “on his feet”.
While Stone has been the butt of many jokes online, he seems to be taking matters into his own hands, responding to comments from the Facebook group.
“Are you having mayonnaise? Or are you just rehearsing to get mayonnaise? wrote a member of the Facebook group, to which Stone replied, “Hush, don’t blow my cover but [of course] I can’t be wrong. Everything has to go well and it won’t be an accident.
“Do you already have your plates? reads another comment, to which Stone replied, “How many times do I have to make it clear that I don’t need it? I mean honestly. Goodness,” riffing on a line already often quoted in “The Rehearsal” in which he assures Fielder that you don’t need license plates to drive.
On July 27, Stone offered the Facebook group a handful of photos of him getting close to Angela, who he says he keeps in touch with, despite coming out of his first-night experience.
Share your experience on the show in a interview with ViceStone said he wasn’t entirely happy with how he was portrayed in “The Rehearsal.”
“I think they really changed my personality,” Stone said. “The performance is just completely meant to make me look bad.”
While he and Angela bonded strongly over shared religious beliefs, Stone told Vice he wanted the show to show more of that.
“I know I spoke a lot more about Jesus than what they showed,” he said. “Like mine and Angela’s conversation at MacGyver Park, we were bouncing off each other, really sharing a lot of similarities with Christ.”
Still, he said he wouldn’t “do or say anything different,” including revealing his plans to sleep with Angela after she told him she was single.
“I could just say it. I mean, I’m very good with women,” he said. “I could just tell she was into me like that. That’s why I even said that.
