While on break today I re-found this gem of a link to a video clip while cleaning out old email:

Holy Fucking Shit that was funny

Bits of this were quite funny, but in the end, I had the feeling that the writer(s) didn't have any real affection for these characters, only disdain. Nerds can be painfully awkward, but ultimately loveable for their quirks. Watching this video, it seemed like an excercise in nonstop mockery.

The guy who plays the barbarian in the movie is a professional actor, I've seen him in television commercials. He might even be a former Dudley Riggs performer.

Anyway, the fact that he's an actor, and not the real deal, makes me question further the video's message.
