You know that thrill you get when you’re briefly scared out of your mind?

These Guys Love Puns and Movies So Much They Spent 2 Years Making This Silly Iron Man Parody

Dec 12, 2014 By Abraham 0

Anders Wotzke and Michael Nixon love movies. They also love puns. So they decided to combine their interest in a 10-second parody of Iron Man, in which he is…an iron. And then they started running into obstacles, mainly the fact that they were clueless about actually making movies. 

It turns out making a household iron fly and blow stuff up is really, really hard when you have no idea what the hell you’re doing.

Now, after two years of fitting filmmaking into their spare time, they have a 3-minute movie to show us.

Talk about commitment to a joke. I think you’ll agree it was all worth it, though.

Introducing Iron Can

…the incredible true story of the founding member of the legendary Appliance Alliance™.

Ultra Downy Jr. (now with floral scent!) stars as Tony Starch: Genius. Billionaire. Philanthropist. Can of fabric softener….

Only Iron Can has the power-setting to flatten [the nefarious Fabrice Crimp] and put an end to his ruffled reign of terror…

But even the greatest of heroes eventually run out of steam…

In case you haven’t noticed, Stephen Colbert is a big nerd.

Not only is he the biggest Star Wars fan, he’s no slouch when it comes to Tolkien, either. So he was a perfect match when Entertainment Weekly was looking for someone to write an article in celebration of Peter Jackson’s last Hobbit movie.

And to really make his dreams come true, they let him dress up like different Tolkien characters for the cover of the magazine…

Actors’ Actual Injuries That Made It Into their Films. Can We All Agree DiCaprio Is Insane?

But sometimes, the actor carries on, incorporating the pain into the scene and the cameras keep rolling.

Here are several actors whose actual pain and trauma has made it onto the big screen instead of onto the cutting room floor. They’re all interesting, and as always Jackie Chan’s craziness is amazing to behold. But, there’s no question that Leonardo DiCaprio’s response to cutting his hand in Django Unchained is as crazy as they come…
