Last night at the 86th Academy Awards, Hollywood honored films about AIDS, slavery, greed, excess, and human social detachment.
However, it’s pretty clear that what people really want are feature-length movies based viral videos. And Jimmy Kimmel, being a man of the people, understands this. So last night that’s exactly what he gave us on his post-Oscars special—four trailers for movies based on viral videos.
There was “Bitman Begins,” inspired by “Charlie Bit Me” and starring Chris Hemsworth, Liam Hemsworth, Tom Hanks, and Meryl Streep.
There was “Ameowadeus,” inspired by “Keyboard Cat” and starring Ben Kingsley, Christophe Waltz, Kevin Spacey, Mandy Patinkin, Gary Oldman, and Abbie Cornish.
There was “Sweet Brown: Aint Nobody Got Time For That,” inspired by the “Aint Nobody Got Time For That” lady and starring Queen Latifiah, Barkhad Abdi, Adam Driver, Matt Damon, and the real “Aint Nobody Got Time For That” lady.
And, last but not least, there was “David After Dentist Double Rainbow Oh My God! in 3D,” loosely inspired by “Double Rainbow” and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Samuel L. Jackson, and Seth Rogen.
You can keep your movies about dudes who fall in love with smart phones. I’ll take the one about “Charlie Bit Me” starring Thor, thank you very much.
