What do you get when you cross Martin McDonagh's latest with a bunch of kittens? You get Seven Psychocats!
I will start this out with a disclaimer: I am not into the cat memes that are all over the Internet. Some are funny, but overall they are played out. But, I have to say that this new spoof of SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS featuring a cast of all felines has had me laughing my ass off for the past hour.
The product of the twisted mind of Jim Tozzi,a veteran animation director for Adult Swim, this mash up uses the format and soundtrack for the SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS trailer but replaces all of the actors with their cat look-a-likes. The result crosses the line between stupid and brilliant.
Here is SEVEN PSYCHOCATS:
And here is the Red Band version (NSFW):
Plot: Written and Directed by Oscar®-winner Martin McDonagh, the comedy Seven Psychopaths follows a struggling screenwriter (Colin Farrell) who inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends (Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell) kidnap a gangster’s (Woody Harrelson) beloved Shih Tzu. Co-starring Abbie Cornish, Tom Waits, Olga Kurylenko and Zeljko Ivanek.
This video has no right to be as funny as it is. It should be stupid, but I cannot help but think that Christopher Walken cat is actually the greatest Method performance ever put to film!
The real SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS opens on October 12th.
Here is the original trailer for comparison.
|Extra Tidbit:||Director Jim Tozzi also worked on the MTV series Wonder Showzen, which is one of the funniest shows of all time.|
