This trailer for Machete done entirely with Legos is about a year old — it’s actually the trailer from Grindhouse, not the actual movie –but it’s getting around for some reason now and it’s awesome, so I figured why the hell not? Warning: this video contains graphic Lego violence, Lego nudity and Lego sexual situations (which, for the record, would make a great nerd band name). Also it will make you want a Danny Trejo Lego figure more than just about anything in your life.
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.
