Seriously, no sober man should have to watch the above video, which is?I am shitting you not?some kind of Bollywood movie musical starring “Superman” and a “woman in a Spider-man outfit” dancing and romancing for five long, batshit insane minutes. There’s dancing and flying and dancing and rescuing a couple and dancing and throwing people into the atmosphere and dancing and oh god, I’m going to have to have scotch for breakfast.
Also, I’m almost positive Luke Cage is one of the background dancers in the song’s finale (look for him around 5:30). Sweet Christmas indeed. (Via Gorilla Mask and Have You Seen This)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
