To celebrate the release of their latest Halloween offering, ‘Treehouse of Horrors XXIV’, Matt Groening is putting Simpsons’ iconic couch gag in the fantastically horrible hands of Guillermo del Toro (apparently they have a good eye for this).
Del Toro did more than just a quick TV gag, he went to ghost town and created a 2 minute 45 second intro, transforming our beloved Simpsons’ characters into the most feared creatures from horror-history. The intro is packed with so many references it will keep your wide eyes glued to the screen for the entire time and even then you’d be hard pressed to spot them all. There is an obvious slant towards Del Toro’s on films but that just makes it more enjoyable, I let out inward squeel when I saw Homer morph into a reaper from Blade 2 or on seeing Groundskeeper Willie as Red (Hellboy not Morgan Freeman).

Thanks to @Steve_Jude for sending me this.
I know a few people who got a little excited over the brilliant Dumb Ways to Die viral by the Metro and McCann Melbourne…
but I also know a lot more people who became erratically ecstatic over the release of GTA V.
So I would hope this should cause a little pant wetting:
Dumb Ways to Die in GTA V (Parody)
Check out the rest of Brysi‘s videos.
There’s a lot more satirical fun to be had.
I feel slightly estranged to this blogging malarky, but better way to get back in the saddle than a post dedicated to Friday funnies. So here they are…
World’s funniest eye witness account recorded via voicemail:
Funny or Die parody Chipotle’s recent ad, Scarecrow:
And… I made another Friday Photoshop:
If you can forego the slightly saccharine outlook of the forgivingly pretty presenters, then Clevver Movies is a really good YouTube channel to subscribe to. Regular uploads keep followers abreast of breaking trailers, movies and Hollywood goss… but never this-
Based on the upcoming movie Seven Psychopaths (obvs), Tozzi has turned the all star cast into all star cats, to much amusement. For me, Christoph Walken makes the best pussy there but who’s you favourite famous feline?
Check out the original trailer here.
This is a great idea with some beautiful design to back it up. Removie Posters are redesigned movie posters with one letter missing. Here are a few of my faves:
If you were to combine a fuck bucket of things I love, from digital interactivity to 90’s beat ’em ups… you’d probably end up with this:
Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter – In real life:
Created by the awesome GakAttack, the perfect blend of special effects and martial arts, alongside .Start, the gamer specific entertainment channel… This is one of the best portrayals of real life Street Kombat (see what I did there) I have ever seen!
Congratulations boys, that was Perfect! (Or should I say Flawless?)
Keep an eye on this incredible team, they plan to make an entire series dedicated to Fan Fights. If your appetite is not whet enough yet, check out this super-human showdown:
Batman vs Captain America – Ultimate Fan Fight:
