The most iconic commercial in television history? I think YES.
omfg beyonce just did the “chick” part of the “boom boom chick” by MAKING THE CHAINMAIL ON HER ASS MOVE LIKE A PERCUSSION INSTRUMENT
Britney’s strangled cat runs in the midst of Pink and Bey killing it will always be my favorite.
omfg That’s Enrique Iglesias as the king, wonderful!
U guiz… it’s emperor. Roman emperor.
fun facts guys gladiatorial combat included corporate sponsorship, dramatic music, and even female combatants at times, so like 90% of this is plausible
the costumes are even p realistic considering gladiators would fight with loinclothes and minimal armor. you can even see beyonce armed w the trappings of the reitarius or ‘net-fighter’. That’s good commercialing.
roman nerd u give me life
This is… this is everything I ever wanted
i wish this had been recorded properly!
and don’t you just love Brian May and dammit, the drummer whose name i always forget..laughing their asses off in the crowd…
I think, for us, when we first started talking about Trek- I remember in the very first meeting- probably about five minutes in, we basically said “How in gods name are we going to get our wives to go see this movie?” Other than the fact that they’re married to us. You know, we will not be successful in rebooting Trek unless we can get women to enjoy the movie. And that’s where I feel, like, at least the birth of [Kirk] really had that going for it
Damon Lindelof (Star Trek 2009 commentary)
Oh yes, that’s correct, because as a woman I wouldn’t like Star Trek unless Kirk was incredibly good-looking… Um, excuse me?! Does anyone else just get angry reading this?!
That’s a reason I disliked the new films. The producers and writers treated it with a Big Bang Theory kind of thing when it came to women. As if they are some alien species that never ever before enjoyed Trek. They weren’t inclusive at all in the way the older shows tried to be.
happy easter here’s a chocolate version of the cross our lord was tortured and killed on
it’s a metaphor, you see
you put the killing thing between your teeth
i like to think the romans would have loved this!
of course…they’d have been all “chocolate? why not OSTRICHE VOMIT!”
and then been all “AHAHAHAHAHA WE’RE CHRISTIAN NOW…erm…it was the jews’ fault! yes, yes, i know crucifying is our thing and if the jews wanted him dead they would have stoned him but…IT’S TOTALLY THE JEWS’ FAULT! look! it’s in the book! that…was written primarily by…us…JEWS’ FAULT!”
Sometimes I picture Hiccup as Steve Irwin
"That’s a Nightfury! The unholy offspring of lightning and death itself! One strike of it’s plasma blast and I’m dead!"
"I’mma touch it."
