Things That Make Me Snarf - Valkyrie

This is even funnier if you imagine Zom Cruise in it.



One of the best parts of this video is that I kind of semi know the guy who plays Tom Cruise. He used to be in a theater company with Bestfriend. (And no, I can't remember if he was at the naked party or not. Because I know you're wondering.) Bestfriend used to throw an annual Halloween party, and one year he came as Die Fledermaus and his girlfriend at the time was American Maid. If you don't know who those people are, you need to go watch some Tick immediately because I'm not allowed to talk to you any more until you do.

Anyway, that year, Slayer was Mr. Furious, and I was The Bowler from Mystery Men. I had a heck of a time figuring out what to do about the bowling ball with the skull in it, because grave robbery ain't my bag, baby. I ended up sticking a glow-in-the-dark skull into one of those hamster exercise balls, and the rest was history-ish.

I miss theater. Theater people come up with the best Halloween costumes. Like the one guy who was a Twister board and kept running up to pretty girls and yelling, "Right hand on yellow! Right hand on yellow!" I'll give you two guesses where the yellow dot was, and the first one doesn't count.

Now I don't need to watch the real movie because that had to be much, much more entertaining.

Word verification says I'm going to take a walky.

Tom Cruise is only ever acceptable in Zom Cruise form! I'm so making this the only Valkyrie I'll see!

As my brother recently said, Tom Cruise is the only actor who can make me hate a character trying to kill Hitler.

I thought that was funny.

I agree about theater peeps. Highlight of my year used to be going to Chapel Hill, NC to hang with some theater folk. Best group costume we ever had was going as the Alpha Betas and the Pis.

But, Twister? Man, that's exceptional...but, somehow not appropriate for a youth pastor....dang job.

I love Mystery Men! One of my favorite movies! And now I don't have to see Valkyrie, not that I was planning to.

Rena said...

How funny! Like Aaron said, no need to see the movie now. LOL! Not that I was planning to. Love it! Definitely "snarf-worthy" stuff there. Thanks Carrie!

I would go see that version. that guy was spot on with his cruise impersonation.

Lady Glamis said...

That was great, Carrie! I depend on you for my daily laugh, you know.

Yes, that guy was scarily-close on his impersonation of Cruise. The movie looks good except for Cruise. Why, oh why, couldn't they have cast somebody better???

Maybe I'll just stick with this version. It definitely makes me laugh... *goes to watch again*

I wanted to go to theatre school when I was yonger but my mother said no. And when she says no it REALLY is no :-). The guys does have a Tom Cruise haircut..

Kelly said...

That was too funny! What a great impersonation, especially the maniacal laughter at the end!

I don't think his cannibal joke done in a Christopher Walken impersonation would be as funny as Zom Cruise-Nazi as it was when he was dressed as Die Fledermaus. Funny clip, though.

Those costumes sound awesome. I so should have been a theater person.
