Boo Boo Kills Yogi Bear

There's a new Yogi Bear movie out. Mixing live action, the lastest CGI, Dan Akroyd, Justin Timberlake and a blonde actress who's been in things like Scary Movie but it's OK to like her because she was in Lost In Translation and it was ironic somehow.

....anyway, needless to say this new Yogi Bear film is awful looking and I imagine the whole movie is largely unwatchable. Shame, seeing as I have fond memories of the original Hanna-Barbera Yogi Bear cartoons.

But this parody of an alternate ending to the new movie nearly made me laugh and cry at the same time....

A mock up of the infamous legend of the assassination of Jesse James by Robert Ford. The clip even uses Nick Cave & Warren Ellis mesmerizing score from the film The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

"Don't that poster look dusty"

Thanks to Sam Cuthbert for alerting me to this and consistently keeping me amused, bewildered, confused and concerned at least three days a week! Follow him and his truly profound and essential musings on Twitter here!/offthecuth. If you're lucky enough to live in or around Brixton, or you often frequent the Ritzy, then you can check out his ramblings in print form in their programme.

Here's one last piece of vital information from the original Yogi Bear himself...

according to sta-sta-stistics!...
