I have no idea how these folks managed to do this, but the people behind Norwegian television show Gylne Tider somehow gathered a whole group of celebrity icons from the Seventies through the Eighties and into the Nineties to sing/lip dub Let It Be by The Beatles. Essentially, this video below is a whole bunch of WTF mixed with a session of “Where Are They Now?” — or more accurately, a video version of the 4chan game “You Nostalgia, You Lose”.
Featured in the video are a few of our geek icons, such as Dee Snider from Twisted Sister, Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk), Roger Moore (James Bond), Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street), Mickey Rourke (Whiplash from Iron Man 2), and Dolph Lundgren (The Punisher, Masters of the Universe, Rocky IV, The Expendables).
Not only that, but the video also features people, like Alfonso Ribeiro from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, who have been subjects of numerous internet memes over the years. This could also be the last official media appearance of the brilliant Leslie Nielsen who sadly passed away recently.
Back in November, Steve Guttenbergwas making some very interesting claims. The ’80s star seemed not just confident, but downright positive that not only was Walt Disney developing a third film in his Three Men and a Baby franchise, but that it was time to revisit both Police Academy and Cocoon as well.
All of this as a whole remains to be seen for sure, but one of these has become an official possibility. It’s being reported that New Line Cinema is developing their very own Police Academy reboot, and that one of the original producers, Paul Maslansky, is back for the job here.
Since the first film’s release in 1984, six more films have been put out — each one disliked more than the last. If you’re a child of that time period, however, you have to have a soft spot somewhere for the first two or three movies at least, but even then, that was the absolute limit. All seven films combined pulled in $240 million, which as you know, is about the average budget of your typical, run-of-the-mill Summer blockbuster these days.
While on the set of his new movie, Steve Guttenberg spoke to WENN and dropped a mega-bomb on the unsuspecting world: Disney is developing a third movie in their Three Men and a Baby franchise called Three Men and a Bride. Wait, wait — it definitely gets better. Guttenberg also claims that, he Ted Danson, AND Tom Selleck are all set to reprise their roles. Oh, thank you…thank you, God.
The 1987 original movie was a hugely popular hit back in its day. It followed a trio of friends who are living the bachelor life in a sweet bachelor pad before a mysterious baby shows up at their door that supposedly belongs to one of them. Hilarity ensues when these completely unfitting fathers attempt to care for the baby and of its glorious baby habits. The film spawned a sequel entitled Three Men and a Little Lady in which the mother comes back and plans to move the kid to London.
