"Her name reminds me of female anatomy"

After the horrors inflicted on you all the other day by Phil, I thought it was time to redress the balance with something good from Youtube.

I'm not sure if this is one guy doing everything by himself, or if there are other people involved in the songwriting/video making, but either way, they're excellent. Essentially, they involve taking a famous movie theme, writing lyrics to go with it, and then acting the song out in silly costumes front of a greenscreen backdrop.

Jaws and Batman are alright, but the real masterstrokes come with James Bond, Superman and - probably my favourite - Back To The Future. The lyrics are funny, the costumes are endearingly crap but - especially in the case of BTTF - admirably accurate, and the guy can even actually sing.

This is exactly the sort of thing that Youtube exists for, and this guy's talent surely can't go unnoticed for long. In the meantime, I hope there are more of these on the way. Indiana Jones, perhaps?

Not quite on topic...but this was fucking brilliant. It'd potentially be the most imaginative video game film ever...
