What if Michael Bay Rebooted “Beavis and Butt-Head”?

Dear God no


Director Michael Bay has really been making a name for himself in Hollywood, apart from his already well-known legacy of over-the-top action movies like Bad Boys II, Armageddon, and that unwatchable piece of donkey excrement known as Pearl Harbor. I’m referring to his newfound obsession with “rebooting” (read: destroying) everything memorable about our childhood. It began with Transformers — a fourth installment hits theaters this weekend — and continued with 2010’s completely useless update of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Bay’s next plan for world domination-by-way-of-reboots is this year’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. (Don’t you just love how he uses brand names by themselves to imply that his is always the “definitive” version of any given franchise?)

Well, it only makes sense to believe that Michael Bay has detailed plans to reboot every cartoon, action figure, and horror movie from the 80’s and 90’s…and that’s why this parody trailer for Michael Bay’s Beavis and Butt-Head is simultaneously hilarious and completely believable. It has everything on the Bay checklist covered: explosions, a ridiculous voice-over, explosions, overdone low frequency sound effects, explosions, and…explosions.

Huh, huh, heh. I need TP.
