Superman and Spiderwoman have joined forces

I found another crazy awesome-because-it’s-so-bad video.   This video clip is from an Indian movie featuring Superman and Spiderman.  (Yes, they have joined forces, for whatever reason.)  Although, you will quickly notice that Spiderman is a woman.  So I reckon that makes her Spiderwoman.  That’s kinda weird.  And they appear to be romantically-inclined.

In this video, they’re flying together, then apart (and since when could Spiderman, er, Spiderwoman, fly?), and then they do some bad dancing together.  But keep watching, because they spot some criminals who need a superhero-style beatdown.  You will laugh at that part.  The special effects we’re used to in America apparently don’t translate well.  And then after the criminals’ nefarious plans are thwarted, Superman and Spiderwoman dance some more.  This dancing will probably make you laugh, too (unless you vomit — don’t take it too seriously, okay?).

By now, you’ve probably realized this isn’t a direct port from an American Superman film.  He’s never appeared with Spiderman nor his long-lost sister.  And he doesn’t dance (thankfully!).  So yes, this is a generic-brand Superman.  And it shows…

BTW, if the music gets annoying during the dance scenes, just mute it.  I think it’s even funnier when muted.  But listen to the music during the fight scene — it’s amusing.

It was also funny when they were flying around and saw a group of people dancing, so they decided to bust a move in the sky, then join the people on the ground to get their dance on.

I also noticed that Superman doesn’t look very muscular.  I reckon that didn’t translate too well, either…

I wonder if the movie labels here in America have sued anyone over these types of films.  Because at first glance, it looks to be a rip-off of copyrighted superheroes.  Although, when you look closer, you see that they didn’t copy very much at all…

If there’s one thing I learned from this video, it’s that when I start releasing movies, I’m going to release them overseas, because obviously the bar is set much lower in other parts of the world…

awesome music video with infectious dancing

I just came across a crazy Indian music video called Tunak Tunak Tun.   For some reason, this reminds me of the ’80s… but in a funny way.  I would like for you to watch it, then let’s talk about it.   🙂

Please watch the video before continuing reading, to get the full experience.  It starts a little slow, but then it jams, and these guys have some funky-fresh dance moves.  🙂

I have to wonder, would it be better if you could tell what they’re saying?  And speaking of that, do any of you have any idea what this video is about?  Every time I try to figure that out, I’m just speechless…

I did some research* and this was the first Indian video to use a blue screen.  And apparently the Tunak Dance is popular, and there’s even a parody of it in World of Warcraft.  I also found another video of it, where someone put the lyrics on the screen.  That’s helpful, because it’s kinda hard to interpret what they’re saying.

* That is, I browsed YouTube.

Here’s the version with some lyrics on the screen.  I know, you just watched it, but it gets funnier each time you watch it.  Trust me.

Have you watched the second video yet?  If so, let’s continue.

Okay, so the lyrics might have been an interpolation rather than an interpretation or translation.   But at least now we know it has something to do with bears.

Are any of you curious to what the actual lyrics are in English?  Well, I found a link for you.  But before I reveal that, remember that curiosity killed the cat.  Although I don’t think any of my regular readers are cats.  (If you are, e-mail me because I have a secret mission for you.)  If you really want to know the translated lyrics, you can read them here.  And by read, I mean read them as subtitles to the music video.  Yes, you have to watch it again!  MUWAHAHAHA!

Actually, this video gets funnier each time I watch it.
