Fake Trailer Imagines 'Where's Waldo' as Government Action Thriller

s Waldo

"Of all the men in our agency, you're one of the few who knows how to blend in completely." With MGM snagging the rights to a Where's Waldo movie late last year, it appears at least some people are still keen on seeing the striped vagabond hit theaters. However, we still don't know what kind of story will be crafted to adapt the classic book series. Well, others can't wait for the studio to get going and have taken the character into their own hands in an unexpected way. Alex Goyette and his Joule Thief crew have crafted a trailer making the character a specialized assassin who goes so rogue, he would make Jack Bauer blush.

Here's the fake trailer for Where's Waldo from Alex Goyette and Joule Thief via Vulture:

Goyette not only stars in this video as Waldo, but he also wrote, directed and produced the trailer. He says on Joule Thief's Facebook page that "it was by far the most complicated project I've put together in my entire life." The production quality is certainly there, and while I love the Hobo with a Shotgun feel to the video, we can almost guarantee that this is a version of Waldo that we will not see on the big screen. However, I love the incorporation of Waldo's signature cane and binoculars being used as weapons. It'd be nice if MGM's take on the film found some good use for those tools as well. Either way, this is just fun.
