Hi, I'm a Marvel....and I'm a DC ( Mac PC Parody )

One of my biggest hobbies, is to collect Action figures of all superheroes. While I'm at it I thought may be I should do something with them, some kind of a short movie, give life to them. And then one day while browsing youtube to look for a scene from the movie Batman Begins, i came across this video which involved Spiderman and Superman action figures. It was created by ItsJustSomeRandomGuy and called "Hi, I'm a Marvel...and I'm a DC. (Mac PC Parody)".

Remember the series of Mac ads which made fun of Microsoft. Now put Marvel in the place of Mac and DC in the place of Microsoft. Absolutely brilliant right ? He's created 15 videos so far and used almost all superheroes from both DC and Marvel comics. Every series is highly creative and they all feel like "behind the scenes" episodes where the superheroes themselves are characters and they talk about their own movies. The best part of all is that there's only guy who renders voice to all characters, the creator himself. And his voice totally fits the toys and makes it funny. I always crack up whenever Spidey comes..he's made Spidey look very cute and lovable. Genius stuff.

I have left my plan/dream of making short movies with action figures ever since i came across this series. Coz I'm tellin ya..it just can't get funnier than this. Now i'm one of the thousands of subscribers waiting for new episodes to come out..and if he ever plans to release a dvd which includes all the clips and much more, i might even buy it :).

You can see the first video in his series here, but don't forget to check out all his videos @
