THE INDIAN SUPERMAN


Am I the only one who hadn't seen this film yet? I never heard of it til yesterday! Anway, here's a song from an Indian film which shows Superman and Spiderman teamed up to fight crime with disco dancing.




But wait! Some of those moves are ripped from Napoleon Dynamite, right!?

Napolean Dynamite was when I realized I am completely out of touch with my generation

One of the first crossover comic books was Superman vs. the Amazing Spider-Man. The idea (howcum Spider-man and Superman never fight together?) was actually voiced by a nine year old kid who's dad was a friend of David Obst, who patiently explained to the befuddled Dad that Spider-Man was Marvel and Superman was DC. David thought there was money in the idea of a movie but it led to a beloved crossover comic instead.

http://www.youtube.com/sethcomedy have you seen these? Seth Mcfarlane got 10's of millions of dollars from google to make these shorts. Theyre pretty much 3rd rate far side cartoons.

John K could make way funnier shorts than these on a FRACTION of the budget

Napoleon Dynamite is the film that completely encapsulates and defines my generation, and it's damn funny, too. Well, that and Superbad.

I don't know whats going on, but the joke of Bollywood being madlibs on steroids isn't so far fetched anymore.

I hope those dance moves are public domain. I've been using them for years.

I have not been to you blog in some time. Look like things are still going strong!! I like the indian superman song. Sounds Rad. I found some thing a few weeks ago on youtube that I know you crack you up. Heres the link. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=hOgALTFzFbQ

Anon: I don't know about a generation being that way but I do meet apathetic ironists sometimes. It's strange.

Jennifer: It's on YouTube: "Indian superman #2." Didn't the movie show up in the post? Blogger closes up for repairs sometimes, maybe you just got them at the wrong time.

Anon: I've heard John's latest animation ideas and they're wildly creative as well as falling down hilarious. If he can get a regular show on the internet it'll kill the competition.

Eshniner: Ah, those sentimental faorites, "May He Poop?" and The Nipple Song!"

That song (Canned Heat by Jamiroquai) was great until it was ruined by that stupid fucking movie.

Rachana said...

I am from the India and I have watched a lot of Indian films but even I do not recollect watching this one. I think this video was quiet hilarious.

Bob said...
