I think this would be funnier if I'd ever seen Fantastic Mr Fox, or played Star Fox for more than 10 minutes, but even so. It was still funny.

Utterly delighted that "Do a barrel roll" was in there.

That was a cuss of a lot better than I expected it to be!

"I've been flying through silver rings for 18 years ... and I never once stopped to ask why."

Pretty cute.

That was amazing.

See also Wes Anderson's Spider-Man.

That was great.

Not bad, not bad at all. A little too dramatic (it didn't have enough silly lighthearted non sequiturs) but that "My father's been dead to me for years" line was perfect.

Needs more lateral tracking shots, but otherwise spot-on.

CollegeHumor is generally kind of a wasteland, but I'm genuinely impressed with how well they managed the FMF look. Anyone have any insight into how that video was done? Did they make a bunch of puppets for a one-off parody, or is it some clever CG work?

I can't barrel roll away from who I am...

My daughter and I have watched Fantastic Mr. Fox over one billion times together, and we can quote the entire movie to each other on car trips.

She's never played Star Fox, but I think she'll appreciate this. I did. Well done.

I'm organizing an Austin Whack Bat league.

I really hope a new star fox ever comes out....all i thought about while watching the fantastic mr. fox was that coincidentally.

Star Fox 64 definitely has an unassailable spot in my Top 5 Games of All Time, and I really enjoyed the movie of Fantastic Mr Fox, so this crossover was either going to delight me in incredible new ways, or provoke me into an incandescent rage.

It did the former.

Hilarious.

It'd be good if all the dialog was in that gibberish from the SNES game. Awesome, anyway.

What would be funnier: The Fantastic Mr. FoxNews. CollegeHumor, call me.

Almost pitch perfect, except for the lack of Futura, a hallmark of Wes Anderson's aesthetic.

Or the Fantastic Mr Star Fox News. Or Tripping the Light Fantastic Mr Star Fox Newsnight of the Living Dead. James W Blake, Nintendo, Wes Anderson, Rupert Murdoch, Jeremy Paxman and George Romero wouldn't know what hit them.

This was pitch-perfect, both in terms of Wes Anderson and Starfox (lack of Futura aside). I was more impressed than I expected to be, and I wish I had the combination of idea, skill and free time to pull this sort of thing off.

I just want a new Star Fox. Or a game that plays like it. Might try Afterburner Climax

I think that God of War one was closest to being accurate. Also the one that I would be most likely to actually want to see.

Hey that thing I like is in that other thing I like!
