I thought we’d pretty much run the gauntlet of movie mash-ups like “Sh*t People of Certain Race/Gender/Religion/Industry Say”, so when I came across the mash-up of movie middle fingers yesterday, I thought for sure it had already been done. But even if it has, screw it. It’s wonderful. It could just be Mr. Bean waving his middle finger at every passing car and I’d be content enough to watch it all day. Man, I sure do love the middle finger.
My brain isn’t working very well today, so I can’t think of any glaring omissions. My first thought was, “This mash-up better have Brad Pitt in 12 Monkeys“, because when I first watched that movie in high school, I walked around nonchalantly flipping my middle fingers like his character for weeks. Damn, now I’m going to have to watch that again just for nostalgia.
Other than that, this mash-up gets a solid A. It’s not too long, not too short. Cee Lo Green’s “F*ck You” is appropriate and fun. That is until the SOPA police kick down my door and tickle my cavities with their middle fingers. Until then, enjoy.
(A middle finger of respect to the fine lads at The Daily What.)
