The subject is Horatian. In my experience, Michael Bay films revolve around explosions and action. The value of action within hollywood movies is inherent, as well as Michael Bay's reputation for directing said hollywood movies. The goal of the article is to reinforce Bay's reputation. Even when claiming he wants to film a romantic comedy, the romance happens to be between two explosions. To me, the article isn't funny because of the subject, it's funny because of how long it is.

Anthony Mackie, The Rock & Mark Wahlberg Star in Michael Bay Film, "Pain & Gain". Off the beaten path for Dwayne Johnson and Michael Bay (no more explosions, please) and Mackie is representing New Orleans! Looking forward to this one.
