~ Heath Ledger (Ennis Del Mar) on Brokeback set with director Ang Lee....


This is just a quickie to post a link of a clip, poking good-natured fun at Brokeback Mountain.

I love Brokeback Mountain, as you know, but, as was the case with The Lord of Rings, I appreciate a good spoof. Comic video clips come and go so quickly, I thought I'd give those of you who haven't seen this a chance to see it, if you haven't already. (My daughter came across this on the King Kong fansite she visits, of all places!) It is cleverly made.

To be able to appreciate the humour of this clip, you need to be familiar with the Back to the Future films (starring Michael J. Fox).


Clip of comedy movie trailer for Brokeback to the Future.


ETA:

While I am at it, I may as well post a link to another spoof we found at the same site, poking fun at the reaction of some Americans to the perceived threat of homosexuality, Hotdogs for Homophobes.


Link for comic spoof called, Hotdogs for Homophobes.

I was har-dee-haring so much over that second one you linked! I love when the guy first asks him if he wants one; first, the big, scary music comes up, then *flash*! and that song pops up with the two guys dancing around him, and the BBQ guy tries poking the hotdog into his mouth!

I'm laughing right now as I type this, that was sooooo funny - thanks! :D

Yeah, it was pretty good. I loved the "heterosexual-friendly shapes" line.

squees excitedly at the come-hither Frodo in mechtild's icon.

"Stop making eyes at bloody GANDALF already! Turn those bedroom eyes on me, you gorgeous tease of a hobbit princeling, you."

Pout.


'Brokeback to the Future' really made me chuckle.

It was very convincing. :D

Maybe he's looking at Gandalfina, not Gandalf...? Wasn't that "her" name in Peachy's Harem spoof? ;)

Yeah, Brokeback to the Future was pretty amusing.
