You’ve probably heard Michael Baying is producing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Battle Los Angeles), and Bay said the turtles “are from an alien race, and they’re going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely loveable.” The “alien race” comment turned into a sh-tstorm, with TMNT creators Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman weighing in. Then director Janathan Liebsman defended the comments, most recently telling Bleeding Cool that they aren’t going to “alienate” the fans. (We see what you did there.)

Then Michael Bay confirmed the title will be dropping the reference to teenagers and mutants, simply being called Ninja Turtles, but he stressed that the turtles will “still act like teenagers“. The possibility of non-mutant, non-teenaged turtle-like life forms who know martial arts prompted us to liken this project to this video of Cookie Monster and Elmo.

Now we have an even better representation of a Michael Bay produced TMNT franchise in the form of a music video from . I’m not going to give away all the jokes in the video below, but I will put this part out on front street:

Chuch.
