I have this weird fantasy sometimes that I'm like some kind of TV or radio talk show host... Something like America's Funniest Home Videos, or some lame show like that. Only, it wouldn't be lame, it would be awesome.
Anyway... I love Youtube. It's like nerd crack. So anyway, I have this fantasy about sharing some of my favorite vids on Youtube with hundreds of people over my imaginary TV show. And the introduction would go like this. (Assuming Alex and I co-host.)
Anna: So... how exactly does one take a lame-ass movie and turn it into nerd crack?
Anna: Make it into an action-packed techno flick, of course!
Without further ado, I introduce to you the top five movie/TV show remixes circulating the internet. (Disclaimer: We make no allegations as to the lame-assness of these movies or TV shows.)
THIS IS SPARTA!
Okay, so I suck at the whole 'embedding' thing. Alex will have to fix that later. But the point is that there's almost nothing better to tickle my funny-bone than watching whatshisface's face on the wiggling fat guy, or the bear suit, still with its pissed off expressions. The video-game part is pretty off the hizzle, too. If indeed a nerd is permitted to use words like "hizzle."
They're Taking the Hobbits to Isengard
First off - original music = sheer genius. Secondly... Okay. I don't know if there is a secondly. But you've got to admit, it's pretty damned catchy.
Get in the back of the van!
Okay, so considering that this only has seven words, I was laughing my ass off. That's the problem with these... They're so pointless that it makes them hilarious.
But Why is the Rum Gone?
One of the most (in my opinion) overrated movies of all time! And this is its crowning achievement... Once again, original music. So cool. (Not to say that I didn't like the movie... just that it's overrated... ) Also, I'm incredibly amused at the clandestine appearances from other movie characters. (The Terminator?! How cool is that?!)
Benny Hill vs. Eminem vs. Dr. Who
I realize Alex showed you this on the last post. But I feel it is so incredibly awesome that I've got to let it reappear as the number one techno remix. Even if it's not technically techno. Nerd crack, meth and ecstasy. And... other cool drugs. (Disclaimer: I am technically not promoting drugs by that statement. Drugs are bad, kids...)
P.S.: Am I the only one who's a bit frightened by an alien running around in a banana hammock?
And now back to my crazed TV show host fantasy...
Anna: And that's what happens when good movies go bad.
Alex: And vice versa of course.
Anna: Of course, this is just a small sampling of the fricking awesome nerd crack that's out there, kids. So go to Youtube and look around.
Alex: And beware of that Shakira "Hips Don't Lie" spoof... Ouch. Brain hurt.
Anna: And extra kudos to the first person to make a "Hot Fuzz" video.
Alex: And that's all for today!
Anna: Now get thee forth and partake of infomercials pertaining mostly to the "snuggie," the "shamwow," and Billy May's excellent vocal bullying!
