I’ve seen the teaser trailer to David Fincher’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo many times now but until I just watched the Cable Guy x Dragon Tattoo trailer below it hadn’t occurred to me just how mash-tastic it is, which admittedly makes me an idiot seeing as how this mashup has already been on YouTube for a couple of weeks, along with other variations, and I spend all day on the internet. But hey, I’m not a video editor or a Rhodes Scholar or the one who left the curtain on the outside of the shower, so back off!
I don’t think the trailer for David Fincher’s sure-to-not-suck thriller has quite Inception “BRAHHHHM!” potential but Trent Reznor and Karen O’s take on “Immigrant Song” can make anything seem super intense, even an offbeat comedy like The Cable Guy, which is a fine wine in its own right, but that’s another conversation for another day.
After the jump I’ve included Dumb & Dumber x Dragon Tattoo, which isn’t quite as good, but kind of like less good pizza, along with several other variations. The technique seems to work best with Jim Carrey though, thanks primarily to his facial expressions being perfect for the sharp cuts required to mimic the original. If someone wouldn’t mind giving Mr. Popper’s Penguins the Dragon Tattoo treatment that would be the real test.
