Don’t worry; this preview for Hustler‘s XXX Avatar parody is perfectly safe for work. And while I still have no desire to see blue people connect tentacles or have rough sex, I have to admit I might need to see this just to watch Evan Stone as the hilariously evil military commander. The character was such a crapyy parody in the real movie, but Stone makes him instantly entertaining (like I needed any more reasons for hating the Na’Vi). I swear, when Stone retires his penis, the industry ought to take a week off, just to honor his contributions to pornography.
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.
