Maybe you’ve heard, but I’ve got a long, storied history with Rob Liefeld, one of the worst (most successful) comic book artists of all time. Let me put it to you this way … if you google “Rob Liefeld,” Progressive Boink’s old takedown of his sh*tty art is the second search result, ahead of his Wikipedia page. Part 2, bringing the horrible Liefeld drawings number to an astonishing 80, shows up before his Twitter. Long story short, I think he’s the only human being ever born with the ability to produce garbage from his fingertips, and he doesn’t like me very much.
It is in that spirit that I present to you ROB LIEFELD SINGING THE GAME OF THRONES THEME WHILE TAKING A DUMP. It combines three of my favorite things:
1. Game of Thrones
2. Rob Liefeld literally producing waste as he creates
3. Rob Liefeld being ignorant and elitist at the same time
Before we get too deeply into that, here’s the video. Warning: You get a pretty clear shot of Rob Liefeld’s asshole.
Sorry, I thought that was his asshole.
If you aren’t familiar with his “I’m rich, f*ck you” excuse for the complete and total abandonment of artistic fulfillment, Rob has two excuses for everything: my kids like it, and you just didn’t get it. The kids one is big. He moves into his third decade of drawing unrealistic women, gigantic hulking penis-armed men, guns the size of double-wide trailers and feet the size of teeth (with a strap of pouches around them) because his kids love them and he’s got his finger on the pulse of today’s youth, not stopping to think for a second that maybe his kid likes those drawings because (1) his dad did them, and (2) they made his family rich by being the Honey Boo Boo of art.
This excuse comes up pretty quickly:
Yeah Rob, your 12-year old was like, “hey Dad, can upload a video of you singing an HBO show’s theme while you drop a deuce? That’d be awesome.” I’m sure he immediately linked all his friends.
