It's Sunday, it's Mother's Day, it's summer - why not have some fun? I know that Hot Fuzz came out over a year ago, but oddly it is just hitting theaters in Japan this July. To remind you of how awesome both Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg are and how amazing Hot Fuzz was, I thought it was necessary to share this little bit of brilliance with all of you. I nearly fell out of my chair laughing while watching this, so I couldn't help but post it. The video below is of Simon and Edgar doing some station identifications for a Japanese TV show and I promise you is beautifully ridiculous! Enjoy!
This video comes from Edgar Wright's official blog - proceed at your own risk and prepare for some laughs!
And if that is not enough, check out this absolutely badass sketch that the guys from Champion Red drew for Simon Pegg. This one comes straight from Simon's blog that he wrote for Peggster.net about his experiences in Japan. I always love seeing international interpretations of American marketing material, and this time this just kicks some serious ass. This really makes me want to go to Japan even more than ever.
I can't even begin to tell you how gratifying it is to see Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg blogging like this. It's not often we get such an exciting look at the behind-the-scenes lives of celebrities and filmmakers. And these two guys are hilarious enough that it's actually entertaining to read! This might be the perfect time to go pop in my HD-DVD (yes I know) of Hot Fuzz and enjoy some quality filmmaking tonight. In the meantime, make sure you go check out Edgar's official blog and Simon's blog on Peggster.net!
