College Humor did us all a favour by re-doing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song in the style of the Michael Bay so we don’t have to watch it.
Okay, fine. I’m totally going to see Bay’s bastardization of the beloved show, if only out of curiosity. But so far, it doesn’t bode well for our favourite amphibians. Why, you may or may not be asking?
Well, let’s face it: Transformers 2 & 3 sucked. The first installment was fine because Louis Stevens (a.k.a. Shia LaBeouf) was all grown up and it brought a tear to my eye. Secondly, Bay has brought Megan Fox back to star as April O’Neal AND SHE’S NOT WEARING THE YELLOW JUMPSUIT. The controversy! Also, I’m sure Bay is going to try and figure out how to add some unnecessary explosions because BOOM! goes the box office, amirite?
Now that I’m thinking about it, explosions may just be the only thing missing from College Humor’s parody.
Get ready for the return of Turtle Power in 2011.
That’s when a new live-action “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie is expected to hit theatre screens, according to Variety.
The fifth ‘Turtles’ feature will focus on the origins of the crime-fighting, sewer-dwelling quartet, whose debut in comic-book form in the mid-’80s has also spawned a line of toys, video games and several TV series.
