It's weird to see TV from the 70s, before most colors were invented.

I recognized the "Exo-Man" armor machine the instant it was on the screen, and I knew something was up. I saw the original Exo-Man on TV. There is nothing like crushing disappointment and disgust to etch something permanently in a young man's mind.

So in other words, a perfect choice for a parody piece. Awesome!

And I loved the closing shot of Paul Lynde on the couch in his "Loki" costume.

I remember Exo-Man. He was no Man From Atlantis, that's for sure.

Yeah, before Hawkeye came on, I'm thinking "can't tell if trolling, or just the 70s" ..

"can't tell if trolling, or just the 70s" ..

I say this at least once every day, only replace 70s with 00s.

The 1951 movie was better.

(I know it's fake, but I love it)

Had me going until Hawkeye as well.
Those of us who lived through the 70s should get some special medal. It was just so . . . this.

the trailer certainly has alot of potential.
posted by Heliochrome85 at 9:42 AM on April 25, 2012


I knew it was a fake when the Exo-Man crap showed up. I recall the show because it pissed me off with the super-bad physics (magnets! in boots! pulling themselves forward!)

The 70s were a very odd time.

"can't tell if trolling, or just the 70s"

For those of us old enough to remember, there's no functional difference.

Kiss should make a new movie....

Okay...I've got it...a shot-for-shot remake of the Metallica documentary Some Kind of Monster, but starring the members of Kiss in full makeup the entire time.

I can't be the only one who got to the Hawkeye part and simply thought 'poor Alan Alda.'
posted by teekat at 9:45 AM on April 25, 2012


Whoever made this tipped their hand with the footage from the Hulk/Thor movie - that was the eighties. This was still awesome though. "Hawkeye" made me laugh.

I don't know how any movie (ever) could be more awesome that what I just watched. I'm never going to wash my eyes again!

I find it hard that the story line is focusing on so many characters. So who is suppose to be the most powerful character?

I too find it hard to believe there's two distinct things in pop culture named after the same common English word.

(At least y'all have it easier than Avatar: The Last Airbender fans. "No, not that James Cameron movie about blue people. No, not that craptastic M. Night adaptation. The original cartoon series.")

My gal and I watch the "Paul Lynde Halloween Special" every year - from '75 or '76 - it features KISS, Margaret Hamilton (the Wicked Witch), Florence "Mrs Brady" Henderson, and so much more.

Now THAT should be turned into a full-length movie. Er...except for Lynde being dead and all.

And yeah, for old folks like me, no surprise this was a gag - but still way fun. And LOVED the theme music.

We did. It was called '80s punk. And when we hear "The Avengers" we get to think about these Avengers.

filthy light thief, here's the 1952 version on whoiseyevan's own YouTube channel, which also features Up! (1965) and The Empire Strikes Back (1950). Previously.

(I love whoiseyevan's work & commissioned him to create my book trailer in the style of a 1927 silent film.)
