Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Certainly not one to pass up low-hanging fruit (see “The Pun-isher” and “Hulk Run Errands”), Fox’s Animation Domination High-Def takes on Tony Stark’s legendary drinking problem in “Iron Man’s Wasted.”
Set to the tune of Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man” (because, of course), “Iron Man’s Wasted” follows the Golden Avenger from one low to the next, as he texts ex-girlfriends, gets a bad tattoo, robs a liquor store, and is tossed — ever-so-briefly — in jail. Warning: The video contains profanity … and cartoon penises.
After his family was murdered by the mafia, ex-Marine Frank Castle turned to a life of vigilantism, waging a bloody one-man war against crime as The Punisher. However, as this latest video from Animation Domination High-Def demonstrates, Castle could’ve gone down a far darker path … and embraced the sordid world of puns.
Sure, The Punisher still deals out justice one bullet at a time, but in this animated parody, he also serves up wordplay so bad that it would make David Caruso roll his eyes.
While the Incredible Hulk may be well-suited for battling alien invaders, gamma-irradiated rivals and the occasional Army battalion, he’s not really equipped to handle the day-to-day tasks that even those of us without anger-control issues find frustrating. Like a lengthy to-do list.
Fox may have pulled the plug on its fledgling late-night programming block, but Animation Domination High-Def is still chugging along online, delivering its own lead-in to Independence Day: a parody of the opening to the 1966 Captain America cartoon that celebrates — ahem, make that “celebrates” — the United States’ statistical rankings in the world.
Watch the ADHF sendup, and the original cartoon’s intro, below.
A few months ago, the folks behind ADHD, Fox’s upcoming late-night animation block, haunted our dreams with “Scientifically Accurate Spider-Man” — “Lanky arms and little mask, his web erupts from out his ass” — and now they’re back to turn on you off Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles faster than you can say “Michael Bay.”
If you’re of delicate constitution or work in a place where cartoon images of reptile genitalia are frowned upon, you may want to skip this one. However, if you have the intestinal fortitude, and an understanding boss, then by all means, watch the video below for the horror that is the well-endowed, deaf, hissing, salmonella-transmitting Heroes in a Half Shell.
Although the animated adaptation of Axe Cop, the hit webcomic by brothers Malachai Nicolle and Ethan Nicolle, doesn’t premiere for more than six months — July 27, to be exact! — Fox is offering a taste of what we can expect from the show in the form of another installment of “Ask Axe Cop.”
In the clip, which you can watch below, young Keith asks, “Would you ever consider running for president? And if so, what would your platform be?” The answer, as delivered by Nick Offerman — yes, in case you missed it, Ron Swanson of Parks and Recreation voices Axe Cop — is as funny as you might expect.
Part of Fox’s new Animation Domination High-Def late-night programming block, Axe Cop also features the voice talents of Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Patton Oswalt, Ken Marino and Peter Serafinowicz. ADHD premieres Saturday, July 27 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
