Re: Kung Fury

The Hoff just released a music video for the theme song he recorded for this movie.

Very cool. I hope they get some solid investments to give it some production values.

The Kickstarter that went up for this I think made $600,000+

The release date was announced last week as sometime in late May.

Re: Kung Fury

If I'm not mistaken, that was Thor. Can't Marvel sue?

And the trailer announces things "never seen in a motion picture before," without adding the caveat that there's a good reason they haven't been seen in a movie before--because they're too fucking stupid to put into a movie!

And would it have hurt them to find an announcer who could pronounce "Führer"?

It was indeed Thor but the character is a mythological figure and thus in public domain. Same with Loki, Odin, Asgard, the Frost Giants, etc. Marvel cannot sue.

Ash, did you not get what they were going for? You're trying too hard possibly.

Re: Kung Fury

I wonder what Hasselhoff's German fans think of all the swastikas and Hitler? Depictions like that are pretty verboten over there.

I see. I guess it would have been funnier to me if they'd pronounced "Führer" correctly. Or maybe less unfunny.

Re: Kung Fury

So does this mean Ash Ketchum has finally entered the "get off my lawn" stage of his life?

Yeah. I saw this listed in the schedule and had no idea what it was.
