Frame Control With The Swinging Czech Brothers

The Swinging Czech Brothers were an ongoing bit by Steve Martin and Dan Aykroyd on Saturday Night Live, around the late 70’s or early 80’s. This seems to be the only clip of it on YouTube-

The gag was always the same- the brothers are clueless and weird, but are always successful in the end. This is always due to some deus ex machina, if I remember right, but the important thing is they always maintain their frame- they are cool guys sure to be successful at meeting women.

Being low status means being forced to accept the reality of the powerful. This reality must be coped with, especially at work, but it need not be accepted. You’re doing your thing, you have your shit together, you’re enjoying life, and humoring the slow people around you when you have to. Hang on to that frame.
