Return to Supermans

I recently discovered that I never posted this video. It a Superman ripoff in the same way that Dünyayi Kurtaran Adam (aka Turkish Star Wars) was a ripoff of Star Wars. The difference of course being that the people who made this are doing it on purpose, and almost definitely saw or heard of Turkish Star Wars.

And it’s also come to my attention now that there is actually quite a tradition of these sorts of things, for instance Japanese Spiderman was definitely a influence (note the theme music). And perhaps Turkish Superman and Indian Superman too.

Time to Despair

mistakesA friend tipped me off to despair.com which has a bunch of things for the pessimistic at heart. Mostly though, it’s just demotivational posters. These are a parody of the classic posters garnished with soaring eagles and words like “excellence” followed by a sentence or two explaining what excellence is in the work place. They also have a mug with a line to mark the “half empty” point. It’s worth a look for a cheap laugh (cheap unless you buy something anyway).

Another favorite of mine is “Get to Work. You aren’t being paid to believe in the power of your dreams”
