Meet Guru Pitka!

Mar. 27, 2008by: Ben Barna
A good YouTube video is one you feel compelled to share with your friends. Unfortunately, the one I just watched promoting THE LOVE GURU isnt one of those videos. It features Mike Myers (or at least I think its him) mouthing the wordsConan OBrien stylean intro to Pitka's laws of happiness. I didnt smile once. This doesnt bode well for the film. Having said that, Austin Powers standing alone isnt hilarious. It was the trilogys supporting characters (Mini-me, Fat Bastard, Dr. Evil) and their interactions with the title character that made the trilogy so iconic. I have no doubt this film will have some memorable supporting characters, at least in the form of Romany Malco and Justin Timberlakes hockey players. I trust Myers. He is a brilliant comedy writer. So just because this clip is shit, doesnt mean the movie will be (and dont judge it by the trailer either!)

Extra Tidbit: Having said all that, Myers' Bible acronym is pretty damn impressive.

I highly suggest that people rewatch some of the Austin Powers trailers again, putting aside all knowledge you have of the movies. Look dumb, don't they? But they turned out absolutely hilarious (at least, in my opinion). I have a lot of hope for The Love Guru, despite whatever the trailer makes it out to be, because I think Myers'll deliver the goods.

Protesting a bit hard...

"So just because this clip is shit, doesnt mean the movie will be (and dont judge it by the trailer either!)"

Hmmm...methinks he doth protest too much.

Austin Powers was so painful I turned it off halfway through. Myers was last funny in Wayne's World.

Def. not Myers

After watching this, then watching the trailer again I can confirm it is not Myers doing the voice.

It is some guy trying to be funny but failing miserably. Just listen to the voice, it is nothing like Myers when he talks in the trailer.

Don't bash the movie yet because of this, wait for more AUTHENTIC clips and whatnot before you people start hating it.

GZA/GENIUS

His acronyn for BIBLE, Basic Instructions before Leaving Earth, is a GZA song from his album Liquid Swords, which came out like 10 years ago. Wu-tang represent.

Also, not very interesed in this. Looks pretty lame.

Yes we can bash this, why? because we can ha.. but seriously, this is supposed to be part of the official uhm.. Guru Pitka's youtube page. Obviously its another guy because they wont pay Mike Myers to do a bunch of these, but I guess they should have not done them at all.

I think this movie looks good. Of course, it also feels like The Guru (Jimi Mistry) or Holy Man (Eddie Murphy) rehashed. That said, be aware that the BIBLE acronym did not originate here. I'd guess it's a reference to the song by Genius/GZA featuring Killah Priest, but in reality it's a phrase that has been used in the Christian community for a long time.
