The insane odyssey that Dolph Lundgren has been on since his amazing Elvis/drum solo/karate tour de force appears to have ended, not with a bang, not with a whimper, but Dolph Lundgren coming out in boxing robes and singing “Eye of the Tiger.” I assume the only reason the world did not crack in two at the sheer awesomeness is because Dolph didn’t sing it solo, but with the contestants of whatever crazy Swedish talent show this has all been part of. However, Dolph does join a group of cheerleaders for a second (FYI I’ve seen actual cheerleader-themed hardcore pornography that was less suggestive than their routine) so that’s fun. Oh, and Sylvester Stallone sent a video congratulations to Dolph for whatever the hell it is he’s been doing. It’s very kind of Sly, especially given the fact his face seems to be melting. As always, thanks to Tomb for the tips.
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.
