Fuck you, Michael Bay.
Just, fuck you.
Growing up, I loved the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles — the comics, the cartoons, the video games, the movies, everything. Who am I kidding — I still do. I always wondered how the Renaissance artists after whom the Turtles were named would react to the idea of having ninjas — who were also mutated turtles, mind! — named after them, having their names’ value polluted for at minimum an entire generation.
Well, apparently so too did the folks in charge of Epic Rap Battles of History.
Fair warning — these rap battles often use problematic language, including this one which has a brief (but rather tame) instance: “you guys draw more dicks than New York Pride”.
The Turtle costume used in this video is awesome.
Proving once again that Christian evangelists with a camera have, historically, thought of nothing better to do with their faith and technology-on-hand than recording and selling a pop culture Five Minutes Hate, here’s some Canadian Christians slagging off Ninja Turtles for being “Hinduist humanist occult” something something.
Also, Michael Jackson chocolate bars, and Weylon Smithers gets made Homer Simpson’s secretary.
Hat tip once again to Everything Is Terrible.
