Alternate endings are one or more endings to a movie that were passed over for the closing moments everyone eventually sees. Sometimes these alternates are horrible, but many times there are people who actually prefer the cut endings to the used ones.
Running with that thought, someone decided to make their own alternate ending for a movie very few (if any at all) people are excited about seeing. The movie is Yogi Bear, Warner Brothers’ animated/live-action hybrid adaptation of the beloved cartoon character, which features the voices of Dan Aykroyd as Yogi and Justin Timberlake as his sidekick Boo-Boo.
Instead of using the goofy, silly, and kid-aimed humor we saw in the first trailer for Yogi Bear, it was decided to take things in a slightly more dramatic direction. Using inspiration from Andrew Dominik’s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, the alternate ending presents us with a tense situation in which there’s a $5,000 reward on the head of Yogi…and Boo-Boo is tempted.

OK, so if you haven’t figured it out by now, this is not a real alternate ending, but it is great. This 2 1/2-minute parody is without doubt better than the actual Yogi Bear movie will ever be in its entirety.
If you’ve seen The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, then you’ll recognize the scene being used here. And though the animation looks like it may have been done by the same people who made the movie, it was discovered that the video was independently created by Edmund Earle.
Enjoy the video right here, and if you’ve yet to see The Assassination of Jesse James, this is something you should do immediately.
