I know that James Bond is much closer to mainstream than nerdy, but my god, I had to share this brilliant version of the James Bond theme, complete with lyrics. It’s perfect. I demand that it be included in all future Bond movies, and retroactively inserted in the old ones, it’s that good. Warning: This video contains constant, horrible profanity, so… turn up your speakers as loud as possible. Fuck anyone who complains — It’s what James Bond would do. Infinite thanks to Jamey B. for the tip.
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.
