My Geek Confessions #23 – 08/09/2012

Welcome to our episode for August 10, 2012! Cori and I are back and bringing the news, and we even relive a bit of our childhoods. Plus we have what I think is the best “Call Me Maybe” Parody ever.

First off, if you’re a fan of the original 90210, Old Navy has something good for you. They have produced a couple new parody commercials with the old stars in them as well. (Note: some of the actors are starting to look old.)

Next we have what I thought was really cool. Gold Medalist for Gymnastics Gabby Douglas is a huge fan of Vampire Diaries, so the cast of the show actually recorded a congratulations commercial just for her.

We’ve talked about Legend of Zelda before. We’ve talked about the Olympics before. We’ve even talked about the Legend of Zelda Violin Medley from Utah before. Now we are combining all three. A female gymnast from Mexico used the Legend of Zelda Violin Medley we’ve previously reported on for her floor routine during the Olympics. So possibly the perfect blend of nerd and sport right?

 

Next we have another perfect blend of different parodies. We’ve featured ones for Dark Knight Rises (another one is the next video after this). And we’ve also have shown parodies of “Call Me Maybe” but I have to say this may be the very best of both categories. This even has the best lyrics and lookalikes from the Dark Knight Rises (well other then Commissioner Gordon. Might have run out of people?). Make sure you go to the website listed in their description for a free mp3 download of the song.

Did you ever want to know what would have happened to Bane after Dark Knight Rises? Well now you can see what he would have been like if he was let out on parole and undergoing anger management. Admittedly this is the first time I’ve seen Chris Kattan in anything for a while, but he is able to do the perfect Bane voice for this.

 

Okay, I admit that I really love Zombie Comedies. I now can’t wait for one more. Cockneys vs. Zombies. Yes, it’s very similiar to Shawn of the Dead, but with more unintelligible-ness and slow moving seniors. Word of warning however. This is a Red Band Trailer, and is not Safe for Work, mainly for swearing. But still totally hilarious.
