Yeah, you better walk away before you get a couple of fucking slaps! You know who I am? I'm fucking Tintin, mate, alright?

Yes I know, it's not big and it's not clever. But I laughed. Episodes 11 to 21 seem to follow a loose storyline. All done (or at least submitted by) this user on youtube. And no, I could not find episode 10.

It's like those hilarious re-dubbed GI Joe safety videos, but... nowhere near as funny. The voicework is just pretty blah.

I never really got Tintin. But man, that guy's fuckin' traveled.

Do not ever do this again.

I think we need a swearjar around here.
I like profanity. I just hate when it is used in lieu of actual wit.

In a somewhat similar vein: He-Man sings Four Non Blondes.

Manages to be both mean-spirited and unfunny. Quite the combination.

Is there somewhere to watch the unedited versions, cause that would rock, this... well lets just say the cultural masturbation phenomena of matching disparate elements is overdone. At least from my perspective. It's a slightly more complex version of the pissing Calvin.

languagehat, you're listening to the soothing, sultry tones of a Middlesbrough accent.

This reminds me of Brad Pitt's unhinged performance in Snatch. It reminds of the entire movie, really.

Wow, stupid, and not even in a good way. If anyone wants to watch the actual cartoons (which themselves are nowhere near as good as the books), some of them are here.

This was stupid in a good way. I mean really really stupid. Sometimes you just need the stupid, fookin right, innit?

Thanks interrobang, your right, not as good as the books, but pretty nifty

Thanks, slimepuppy!

Yeah so first link I clicked was "away" and I'd just like to say that a "NSFW" warning would have been peachy.

Reminds me a little of the anarcho-syndicalist comic Breaking Free, which casts Tintin and Captain Haddock as brickies who lead a labor uprising during the Thatcher years.

Except a somewhat more profane and not nearly as ideological.

I think this guy has read one too many issues of Viz.

I didn't like it all. Thanks!
Don't ever do this ever again, on a Wednesday.

Great snakes and Blistering barnacles!

A friend sent a couple of TinTin video's to my kids and they are now obsessed. My thanks go to Interrobang for the real video links.

20 links in one FPP is too many.

Wow, I didn't expect such a negative reaction to this post. I liked em, slimepuppy.

It was a bit hit and miss, but there were some gems in there. They seemed awfully focuseed on various unsavoury activities with Snowy, though.

Childish, mean-spirited prole-baiting crap - I loved it.
