Come here. Come here! And shut the hell up! I need you all to listen?TR contributor Chris Cummins found a bootleg video of the Watchman movie footage shown at SDCC?shut up! I know it’s awesome, but be quiet?on Youtube! Now, it’s easily the worst bootleg video I’ve ever seen?the guy filming it was apparently also in a wrestling match at the same time?but it does show blood landing on the smiley face pin, which should be enough to make most nerds need to switch pants.
Now, if WB finds out about this, they’re going to take it down. So I need all one million of you TR readers to promise not to tell anybody. Okay? great.
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.
