Remember that unbelievably great Jurassic Park musical a few immensely talented nerds put on YouTube a couple years ago? Well, apparently they also made an X-Files musical — at 11 parts and way over two hours, I haven’t seen it all yet, obviously, but even after this first chunk I can say with 100% conviction that the only way Chris Carter will ever get me to give a shit about another X-Files movie is to put this thing up, verbatim, on the screen. Links to part 2-11 are after the jump. Much thanks to Aaron H. 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.
