'Exploding Actresses,' the new gifs and video craze that's sweeping the nation

By 06.28.13

Inevitably someone’s going to ask “WHY IS IT ONLY ACTRESSES EXPLODING? WHY NOT ACTORS?” and say this is misogynistic (see what you’ve done to me, internet?), but for now let’s just enjoy the majesty of Simone Rovellini‘s editing, where actresses in classic movies explode at just the perfect time. This is so brilliant. Not to explain a joke that should require no explanation, but it’s a lot like Andy Kaufman’s Mighty Mouse bit, where you know exactly what’s going to happen, and the fun is in delaying the inevitable payoff. You know, except instead of “here I come to save the day,” people explode. Amazing. It turns every movie into the end of The Fury, which is what I’ve always wanted.
