MTV Movie Awards: Hey, Remember These Movies? They Kicked Ass!
10:09 -- Andy presents a preview of New Moon... starring Andy as Dracula fighting a guy dressed as Teen Wolf. There're some clips from American Werewolf in London in there, too. Kinda funny, and probably better than the real one.
10:13 -- Commercial Commentary: Orbit Gum has utterly co-opted the characters, visual style and font of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou to sell their new flavor. While I can't fault their taste, I can fault their shameless theft of a filmmaker's entire concept. (Somehow, I doubt Wes Anderson is involved. If he is, I need to speak to him.)
10:16 -- The Twilight stars present the real New Moon clip. I don't know if I was supposed to laugh when Bella gets a paper cut and some random vampire freaks out, prompting Edward to break up with her so that nothing like that happens again, but I did. ("Paper cuts are tearing us apart!") I was probably supposed to gasp in delight when Taylor Lautner finally turns into a dog to protect Bella, but I just watched the first season of True Blood, and that was much more awesome.
10:19 -- Ben Stiller wins the Generation award, and the montage includes enough Zoolander and Ben Stiller Show clips to make me remember how much I used to like him. Zac Efron, Kiefer Sutherland and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (there he is!) come out to pay tribute to him. Triumph manages to call Stiller a "Jew" and a "primate" in the span of a few seconds, which makes his going on about how ape-like Stiller is -- and how he gets it from his parents(!) -- kinda awkward. (To me, anyway.) Zac Efron, however, is delightfully deadpan, and Kiefer goes all-out, actually weeping over how good an actor Stiller is and what an inspiration he is. Hey, it's classier than having Kiefer mock-headbutt somebody.
10:29 -- Andy and Lonely Island pal Akiva Schaeffer play Doubt: The Video Game on the Sega Genesis. The game is short, and ends in a prayer for forgiveness. The sketch is also short, and I have to wonder if it was worth the airtime spent to pay someone to create that fake game footage.
10:34 -- The post-fight recruitment clip from Star Trek is digitally altered so that Pike is now a recruiting officer for "Starf Leet Clown College." A rubber chicken, a clown nose and those glasses with the spring-loaded eyeballs are digitally inserted into the scene. It's pretty seamless, but ultimately kind of pointless.
