"Ain't Nobody Comin' To See You, Otis" Saying (Examples From Various Online Sources) , Part II

Edited by Azizi Powell

This is Part II of a two part pancocojams post about the line "Ain't nobody come to hear you, Otis" from the 1998 The Temptations television mini-series. That mini-series is commonly referred to as "The Temptation movie".

Click https://pancocojams.blogspot.com/2021/04/aint-nobody-comin-to-see-you-otis.html for Part I of this pancocojams series. Part I provides information about The Temptations and information about The 1998 The Temptation television mini-series. That post also showcases a YouTube video clip of a scene from that mini-series which includes the now iconic saying "Ain't Nobody Comin' To See You. Otis. A  transcription of that portion of that scene is also included in that post along with a  few comments from that embedded video's discussion thread.

Part II of this pancocojams series presents some examples of the quote "Ain't nobody come to hear you, Otis." that were used apart from that 1998 The Temptation television mini-series.

Thanks to David Ruffin who ad libbed "Ain't nobody comin' to see you, Otis" for that scene in The 1998 Temptations television min-series. Thanks also to The Temptations for their musical legacy. Thanks to all those who are quoted in this post.

HIP HOP NEWS

Ain’t Nobody Coming To See You Otis! Twitter suddenly brings up this David Ruffin quote from “The Temptations” movie, making Otis trend

By Bossyy, May 9, 2019

Hip-HopVibe.com Staff Writer
"Social media is a very strange place and “The Temptations” movie is currently dominating it. Fans are tweeting one of the infamous quotes from the movie. It’s not clear where people got this quote from, as the movie isn’t playing, right now.

One theory is that Ayesha Curry*, with her comments, has people resharing the quote. Last night, there were memes of people replacing “Otis” with “Ayesha.” The quote was “ain’t nobody coming to see you Ayesha,” where her name replaced Otis.

 As the morning is coming to a close, Otis is one of Twitter’s leading trending topics. The quote is “Ain’t nobody coming to see you Otis,” from the movie. Everybody has jokes about this one, as they always do.

Read the Otis tweets below:

Pancocojams Editor: Here are two examples from that article:

Yet everybody watches it for their favorites, and Otis is laughing all the way to the bank [three emoji of smiling faces]"....

*Ayesha Curry is the wife of National Basketball Association (NBA) superstar Stephen Curry.

That bold font is used in that article.

The word "it" in this excerpt probably refers to The Temptations television mini-series. That min-series is almost always referred to as The Temptations movie.

*This word is fully spelled out in this comment.

"I made it halfway thru" refers to listening to a music video clip on that page of Hip Hop artist Fizzle Pop’s song dissing Hip Hop artist Omarion.

That tweet from Steve Harvey was published after the Verzuz battle that he hosted when he should have been aware that many people had twitted that he had talked too much about himself during that live streaming concert. In doing so, he took time time away from The
Isley Brothers and Earth Wind & Fire singing. D-Nice was the DJ during that concert's intermission. Unlike Steve Harvey, all the tweets that I read about D-Nice were highly positive. Click https://pancocojams.blogspot.com/2021/04/verzuz-battle-between-isley-brothers.html for a pancocojams post that includes a video of that Verzuz "battle" as well as information and comments about it.

Nobody created a Triller account to celebrate the soundtrack of Steve Harvey's life.

La Guardia Cross, the African American father whose interactions with his young daughters are the focus of each episode of the "New Father Chronicles" YouTube vlog. In the episode whose link is provided above, La Guardia laments that his daughters have taken over his standard role as interviewer.

A Dec. 2020 vlog episode featured former President Obama being interviewed by those two young daughters. President Obama said that La Guardia Cross was "in trouble" (because he could tell that La Guardia and his wife were raising strong smart daughters and they would have their hands full when they get older.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgB_m2Xhtc4&ab_channel=LaGuardiaCross  OBAMA meets my daughters! He says I'm in TROUBLE! 😭 (Dec. 17, 2020)


La Guardia Cross routinely refers to the women watching that vlog as the "internet aunties".  
Oc3, one of the commenters quoted above, wrote that "No one cares about Uncle Otis". That comment serves as a reminder that "internet uncles" as well as "internet aunties" watch that vlog and are there to encourage, praise, and support the young daughters on that vlog.


"No one cares about Uncle Otis" is an adapted form of the “No one coming to see you, Otis” saying.
