I was dead set on showcasing the Panty & Stocking official tissue box cover, which features sexy versions of Gainax’s ridiculously saucy show in states of undress, bearing the words “May I be your tissue?” Yes, for real. Frankly, the idea that a show knows, expects and actually wants me to masturbate to it freaks me right the hell out.
Anyways, I was going to post that, until I saw this:
The monkey riding a boar has been a Japanese hit for a while now, but someone decided to make a commercial for some horror movie by having the film’s Terminator-esque baddies chase the monkey riding a boar. I honestly can’t even put into words how this clip makes me feel. It’s like the internet leveled up, and this video is its new power. (Via Japan Probe)
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.
