Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins is only a couple of weeks away and it has won me over. I’ve been relatively skeptical about this film for a while, not entirely sure why the G.I. Joe franchise needed a spin-off out of the blue like this. But then the people at Paramount went and made a commercial that speaks to my very soul.
Just wonderful. Leaning into the 1980s G.I. Joe cartoon and action figures for your self-referential promotional material? Just hook it to my veins!
Snake Eyes comes to theaters on July 23 and you best believe I’m gonna see it!
College Humor is kinda, sorta clawing its way back! I was a big fan of the sketch comedy crew before they all got unceremoniously fired at the start of 2020. And I’m still subscribed to their Dropout streaming service, because I like what they’re putting out. Well, slowly but surely, College Humor is coming out with fun new videos. Mostly in their popular CEO running gag from Brennan Lee Mulligan.
They’re funny, and there’s a new one based on a hardware store. I’m all about sharing funny things!
And if that isn’t enough, here’s one they did last month about the CEO of Oreo.
Good comedy is good comedy and should always be shared. If you’ve never seen these videos before, there’s a whole bunch of CEO sketches from over the years. It’s a fun gag.
Rick and Morty season 5 is coming at the end of June and the world is probably ready for it. I know I am! To help get us excited, some really sweet Rick and Morty business arrived this weekend. We’ve got a new trailer, which looks as good as always.
And then we’ve got this 17-minute, 8-bit adventure animated by Paul Robertson. Holy jeez louise, this one.
What the heck do we even make of that?! Other than art is amazing and this Robertson dude is some kind of god. If this doesn’t spur Cartoon Network into hiring Robertson to make a legit Rick and Morty 8-bit adventure, I don’t know what will! Everybody loved that Scott Pilgrim game, right? Do that, but make it this!
Find the time to watch all 17 minutes. This thing is really nifty!
Your favorite internet animator and mine — Tell It Animated — is back with Wonder Woman! I love this dude’s videos and I love sharing them on my blog, to spread the word as far and wide as I can. This one is another corker.
Another great job! This guy has really found a nifty niche, and I hope he’s having fun and finding success!
As for what he should do next, a lot of people are requesting a King Kong video, but surely that’s not going to be very fun, right? Just a bunch of drawings of the same gorilla?
I suggest he do Robin! He’s already got a Batman video, so why not complete the Dynamic Duo? Robin was in just as many black and white serials as Batman back in the day, then you’ve got the 1960s TV show, the Chris O’Donnell Robin from the movies, the Robin costume from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and now the various Robin/Nightwing costumes on the live action Titans. Sounds like a good video to me!
Sometimes we just want to kick back and have a laugh at the genius the internet brings us. I know that’s what I do with my day. And I had a good laugh at this mash-up where some internet genius takes dialogue from Beavis and Butt-Head and dubs it over one of those old Legend of Zelda cartoons. Just watch for yourself.
Now that is good, quality, weird, dumb, funny stuff. That’s what the internet was made for. All hail the creator: KhalidSMShahin! This is how masterpieces are made.
