Danny Trejo starring in a film based on Epic Beard Man? Watch the trailer...

12.27.2011

Remember Epic Beard Man? I know internet memes have an even shorter shelf life than most 15-minutes-of-fame news but Epic Beard Man (aka Thomas Bruso) was the old guy who got into the fight on a San Francisco bus with a younger man. You know, it sparked the whole "Amber Lamps" thing? Here's the video to refresh your memory. Well it seems someone has made an exploitation style movie based on Epic Beard Man and cast Danny Trejo as an ass-kicking old dude.

But is it real?

A fully-formed trailer for BAD ASS, an alleged new film starring Trejo, popped up online over the holiday and purports to advertise a film that goes as follows:

"A Decorated Vietnam hero Frank Vega returns home only to get shunned by society leaving him without a job or his high school sweetheart. It's not until forty years later when an incident on a commuter bus (where he protects an elderly black man from a pair of skin heads) makes him a local hero where he's suddenly celebrated once again. But his good fortune suddenly turns for the worse when his best friend Klondike is murdered and the police aren't doing anything about it."

The trailer, which you can watch below, looks a little too slick to be your generic indie movie and there's a lot of speculation as to whether this is advertising something, a spec trailer, an actual film or what. For now, enjoy Danny Trejo in a fanny pack kicking some ass...

I love Danny Trejo. IMDB has an April 2012 release date listed.

oh just watching that video again just makes me mad... by the way the argument was going, the white man simply misunderstood the black guy... then the black guy gets up and fights him for no reason and gets his ass handed to him. then his friends still think he can press charges because they got it on tape... yeah, they got the white guy defending himself on tape! oh yeah, and the movie looks pretty cool.

Looks Awesome

Pretty much if anyone is going to star in a movie called "Bad Ass" it's gotta be Trejo. Now we just need "Mothafucka" starring Samuel L Jackson.

So fucking sick of Danny Trejo being portrayed as a "bad ass." Shouldn't this be the 'Jingle All the Way' period of his career?

There was nothing to "get" about Machete. A movie that tried so hard to be funny and smart and ended up being annoying and stupid! Prove that a 2-minute joke doesn´t work for 80 minutes!

So because I didn't like Machete, then I didn't get it? That's a pretty fucking stupid thing to say.

I'm sure it's just a trick of the eye...

...but it looks like there's some dong/sack action below the fanny pack.

yeah cause you know anything about me and my tastes. But you are right, i would watch Battleship before watching this pile but at the end of the day i'll see neither and be better off and possibly more intelligent for not having exposed myself to the crap fest that are the two mentioned movies, vis a vi, concordingly, shabalagoo.

Especially since the real guy got into the fight with the black guy in the first place because he asked him how much it would cost for a shoe shine.
