Kung Fury is a 2015 Swedish martial arts comedy short film written, directed by, and starring David Sandberg. It pays homage to 1980s martial arts and police action films. The film was crowdfunded through Kickstarter from December 2013 to January 2014 with pledges reaching US$630,019, exceeding the original target goal of $200,000, but falling short of the feature film goal of $1 million. What started as an awesome trailer, got the funding to be a short length movie. It was selected to screen in the Directors’ Fortnight section at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, losing to Rate Me from the UK. Forget Cannes, this movie wins Buzz Pirates Movie Trailer, Movie (short film) and Music Video of the Year. Its the most bad ass Internet thing we’ve seen in a long time. It’s also more enjoyable then most of the crap at your local theater this summer… and its free! Enough with the talk we give you… Kung Fury!
It started as a trailer…
It became a short film…
Which spawned a companion music video True Survivor by David Hasselhoff…
Check out Zangief Kid (a.k.a “Little Zangief”) who was being picked on by a smaller kid. The taller sixteen year old boy Casey Heynes, who in turn retaliates by a serious smackdown. Casey has been nicknamed Zangief by the Internet referring to the pro-wrestler character Zangief from the popular video game series Street Fighter. Its a combination of his size, red shirt and of course his take down that looks somewhat like Zangief’s Spinning Piledriver. This all went down in Australia… bitches are saying he should have gotten a teacher, but online he’s being looked at as a hero. Check it out, he’s pretty badass.
Who hasn’t seen the Antoine Dodson video at this point? Dodson is a former resident of the Huntsville, Alabama, Lincoln Park housing project, whose interview on the local news became an Internet meme and resulted in an auto-tuned song with The Gregory Brothers which has appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 list. Dodson’s interview was in response to an alleged house intrusion and alleged attempted rape of his sister. The seriousness of the alleged crime and news report gets crazy the second Antoine lets his inner diva let loose to the TV cameras.
I just spent the last week telling the world how much I loved my new Motorola Droid phone. What the hell was I thinking. I should have known better than to trust a device from Motorola. Those chumps haven’t made anything good since the beeper. All it took was a small fall from my sofa to the floor…a mere 2 feet…and now my screen is more cracked than Whitney Houston.
It all happened in slow motion. Slowly it started falling off the sofa, inch by inch. I reached for it and felt it sliding past the tips of my fingers. It hovered in the air between the sofa cushion and the floor for what seemed like an eternity. Then it hit. I thought it was ok…for a second. Then I saw the crack. Then another. Then another. The screen of my brand new Droid started splintering like thin sheet of ice.
Come on! 2 feet? Are you kidding me? I could understand if I dropped it on hard concrete. Even then I would expect it to stand up to a fall or two. But no…my droid lasted a mere 6 days and fell victim to a gentle breeze.
Now that I think about it, there were a few other things that I didn’t like about the Droid.
The querty keyboard is nothing more than a waste of space. Its impossible to type anything on the top row because my fingers hit the edge of the screen
If you ask me, the software was the only good part of the Droid. The user experience was awesome. The apps are awesome. The maps are awesome. Hmm….in other words, everything Google was awesome. Do you hear that Motorola? Listen up and fix your piece of shit device. And you better replace my Droid assholes.
UPDATE: So Verizon Wireless was pretty good about replacing my phone. I called the internet orders hotline and they told me they would charge me full price ($579) for the phone, but if I took it into a store, they will probably exchange it. Sure enough my local Verizon store came through. I did have to pay a $50 “return fee”. But oh well. They also stuck me for a body glove and screen guards. So I guess they got what they needed outta me. I still think Motorola makes a shitty piece of hardware. But I am glad to have my Droid back.
When the Popeyes runs out of chicken in Rochester, NY… the citizens are far from happy. This news report is hysterical (and slightly racist). Check out the woman driving a $35,000 car yelling at the drive thru box with the automated message about being unable to feed her family due to Popeye’s running out of chicken. This is a bonafide gem.
So, it looks like someone in Sear’s tech department was either bored or recently fired, as they have shown Sears to be the purveyor of the perfect grill for someone who eats people. Human Cooking > Grills to Cook Babies and More > Body Part Roaster. Awesome! Who knew Kenmore was the quality choice for the distinguished cannibal. The prank was online for a while, but has since been corrected… fun while it lasted though.
