    Is this based on Epic Beard Man?

    by georgecauldron

    If so, hilarious.

    That opening footage is pretty much from the real clip. Nice.

    by Pixelsmack

    Yes you can still see the OG clip on You Tube. Except he was an old white guy and the guy getting the beat down was a black guy.

    Wow, all three of them have been in Alien or Predator movies

    by Dranem

    Trejo in Predators, Pearlman in Resurrection, and Roc in Alien 3. Thats all I got. Seriously, is this based on Epic beard man?

  • Seems pretty darn different to me.

    First of all

    by ranma627

    It's 50 seconds. And I know it's supposed to be cheesy but this looks like shit. Probably going to be as bad as Machete.

  • Dec. 24, 2011, 5:45 p.m. CST

    really looking forward to this

    by Rob Jenson

    love to see Danny Trejo do his thing. I was disappointed in Machete, but that was the writing and directing. They were just half baked. Could have been awesome. Get back in the game, RR! Planet Terror showed you're still capable of awesomeness. Here's hoping Machete Kills lives up to the amazing potential. In the meantime this looks like a blast. Go Danny go!

    Uh, yeah, Epic Beard Man

    by barry davis

    Things in common: -It's on a bus. -Dude is old. -Has a beard. -Wearing a bright blue t-shirt. -And a dark blue hat. -And shorts. -And white shoes. -And a fanny pack facing his front. -Sitting down while aggressor is standing. -Becomes an internet sensation. Not in common: -Aggressor is white instead of black. -The beard man is Hispanic instead of white. -Immediately after the fight, he yells, "I told you I didn't want to fight," instead of "I told you not to fuck with me!" So really, how can one suppose that this ISN'T based on EBM? It's akin to saying that The Lord of the Rings movie is based on the book since Frodo was played by Elijah Wood instead of an actual hobbit.

  • Dec. 24, 2011, 6:13 p.m. CST

    Epic Beard Guy with the races switched to make it palatable.

    by ReportAbuse

    In reality, the old white man trying to mind his own business on the bus was the victim of a moon cricket that couldn't stop yapping its gums and got a decent smackdown for its trouble. Source of the internet meme "call da ambalamps!" based on what the yard ape whined afterward through its bloodied lips. A good lesson for uppity bluegums, I daresay, and a long time coming. To comment on the clip: I lived enough years in L.A. and never once recall seeing a WN skinhead. Ever. Let alone a group of them on a bus.

  • Dec. 24, 2011, 6:19 p.m. CST

  • Of course, he's bad ass. He's Danny FUCKING Trejo. =) Real or not, I enjoyed that brief minute of awesome from the scariest Mexican ever to hit the big screen.

  • Dec. 24, 2011, 6:44 p.m. CST

    the name of the production company is Amber Lamps

    of course it's EBM and of course it's fake... just like Machete was. i do hope the movie gets made

    Sons of Anarchy has really catapulted Perlmans career

    by ganymede3010

    That's why he's showing up more and more now. Not only movie geeks thinks he's cool anymore, everyone does apparently. Kinda sad thought that they've made him so unlikeable on Sons of Anarchy now. I was really looking foward to Jax Teller wiping the floor with him. Oh well, I'll guess he'll fill Piney's role as the broken old man on Season 5.

    by Mullah Omar

    Seems like it. The only reason this should be popping up right now - so long after Epic Beard Man was an internet sensation - would be that this movie is actually in production. All else aside, Trejo gets a free pass for life.

  • Dec. 24, 2011, 9:44 p.m. CST

    YES! PLINKETT reviewed "Indy" 4! Epic as always!

    by Pixelsmack

    He has a knack for not only making you agree with him on the obvious shit elements of the films he reviews but he also has honest, real, commentary on why it's shit and what could've been done to make it not so. THAT is what separates his genius from the internet noise like me who says something is just SHIT. ALL HAIL RED LETTER MEDIA!!!!

    Definitely based on Epic Beard Man, as someone pointed out...


    ..the prodco's name is Amber Lamps. But if it's a trailer to a fake movie, they've put a lot of money into an internet joke, as the production values are fairly high.

    "As Bad As Machete"???!?!?!?

    by djscott95

    Machete is not bad. It is, in many ways, the film that "Grindhouse" wanted to be and wasn't. Where it failed was at the precise moment when Rodriguez decided to preach his agenda rather than have some fun with the genre. ...And Trejo was freaking brilliant in it. But that's no surprise to anyone.

Sitting on your porch in Inglewood while on your laptop that your grandson fixed up for you, just fuckin' yelling at black kids. "Get off my lawn you goddamn moon crickets!". Watching their perplexed faces as they try to figure out if they've been insulted or not. They must think you're Walt Disney. That's probably why they haven't killed you yet and made their own you tube video of it. You can't die, one of them will try to marry your granddaughter and then the bloodline will become impure! IMPURE! NOOOOOOOO! Oh you crazy old racist you. You're adorable.

    Because normally they're so peaceful, it takes some determined instigation on the part of evil white racists (who are SO ubiquitous in L.A. after all) to get them to chimp out. By the way, I've lived in L.A. many years ... still on the lookout for those roving gangs of white racist skinheads that apparently are all over the city, if Hollywood movies are to be believed. Haven't spotted any yet but I'm sure they exist ... somewhere ... just itchin' to aggravate those normally totally peaceful teenapers. Yep. They're out there ...

    Red Heat

    by Xenodistortion

    That shit is funny. Is this going to be the new trend in movies? Just using other movies as stock footage? Except that stock footage is now 90 percent of the movie. You could literally film 5 minutes of a dude doing dialog and then cut it with 50 other action movies. It's going to be fucking crazy. Movies 20 years from now are going to be peppered with unnecessary shots of hobbits and batmobiles and predators and various scenes of Rutger Hauer from "Blind Fury". Welcome to the future! Where other movies are the new "movies"! p.s. Yeah, I'm not racist. I was just ripping on that one dude who was using crazy old racist remarks (thanks for stickin' up for me chief j!). I found it weird and unsettling. I'm sorry they didn't do a faithful adaptation of your guys favorite you tube video. Fucking hollywood, man. They can never get the casting right. I'm sure you white guys will get your revenge when they screw up Chocolate Rain: The Movie for the brothas'.

    American History X, LA Confidential

    by ReportAbuse

    Of course in that one, the death of the black thugs only served to show how evil the white racist skinheads were. In LA Confidential the poor treatment of the blacks by the cops in interrogation (if that's the scene you're referring to) was once again -- you guessed it -- solely to point out the evil racism of white men in that era.

On the other hand, we already have Falling Down and Trejo (bad ass that he is) fits this part perfectly. So rock on, bitches. And merry Christmas.

    by Hipshot

    on this board foam at the mouth if any film dares suggest that the white male is anything other than the apex of moral, intellectual and physical evolution. Do the rest of you catch this shit? Literally every other movie advertised, or in the theaters, can be white guys saving the world and getting the girl and kicking ass on non-whites, and if a single film comes out with a brown guy kicking white ass they take it as personal threat. The sheer, boiling fear and venom just....magnificent. Love to watch their blood pressure skyrocket in their paper-thin, lard-choked arteries, and can only hope that their miserable little lives will be a little happier and more joyful in '12. Here's a clue--healthy white guys aren't bothered by this. At all. You are pathetic, and a disgrace to your race. And gender. But dear lord, you are amusing.

  • Death Wish, Falling Down, Hobo with a Shotgun, Gran Torino. Even a History of Violence. Let me guess. A quiet but peaceful, older gentlemen just wants to be left alone. But he gets pushed too far by young punks, and responds by the only way he knows how, with violent pay back!! I've seen it before.

    Second sentence: "No one gives a shit if the person is brown, black, purple, or fucking plaid." Third sentence: "but the races have been reversed" ## In other words, you do indeed care. Now, then...WHY do you care? Why, you say, it's because it was based on a true story! And you want to see the white guy beating the black guy! Wow. It's fiction, not a biopic. It's a little star vehicle for Danny Trejo, so they tweaked it to fit his personae. ITS FICTION. And an original story, to boot. If it was based on a novel, and they changed the race, you'd have a point. Maybe. But you don't. Sorry, sob sob. In other're the one whining and complaining. I wasn't complaining at all. I was having fun watching you amygdala-centric troglodytes peeing all over yourselves. "Whining." Jesus, you're tone deaf.

    by Jaster Mareel

    I saw the Epic Beard Man video, after sorting through 20 bazillion fakes/responses/comic altrerations and there is no fucking reason to change the race of the participants. Red Heat used for stock footage. What is this Ed Wood for fucks sake? Epic Beard Man made for a great Youtube video (although he wasn't just sitting there quietly trying to mind his own business. He was in that black dude's face and what actually sparked the confrontation was him saying he would "slap the shit" out of the black guy), but it's not feature film material. It kind of pisses me off that we're looking to fucking YOUTUBE for movie ideas now. That's how creatively bankrupt Hollywood is? Really? Fucking Christ!

  • Dec. 27, 2011, 10:23 a.m. CST

    by Jaster Mareel

    The dude is a little fucked up mentally and he's homeless now, but people recognize him and give him money on the streets. Also his voice is totally fucked now. I don't know if that's cigarettes or something else. Yeah it is pretty fucked up that he's not getting any money from this project. I'm sure the girl who filmed it is getting something though. So yeah this whole project is just completely pathetic to me now so I will not see it.

    Politically Correct Garbage movie...

    by BadWaldosRevenge

    What a pathetic excuse for a movie, stereotyping "white supremacists" harassing a latino vietnam vet on the bus and glorifying latinos & non-whites, based on the true story of a white vietnam vet who beat up the violent, assaulting negro in self-defense. This is how the Khazars and white-hating liberals run Hollywood by twisting the reality to make quick bucks. <p> I hope Bad Ass bombs at the box office as badly as Machete. I wrote the well-argued and reasoned letter to Texas office to deny Robert Rodriguez the reimbursement in tax credit for making a pro-illegal immigration, hate-whitey film Machete. Eat that, Bob.

  • I agree that Hollywood is scared to have black antagonists unless there is also a black protagonist. But I am certainly not siding with the knuckle-draggers around here tossing around racially charged epithets. I'm just saying i don't want to be talked down to because some might get upset by the truth.

  • Interviews with him, people who know him, the guy he hit, other people on the bus. And then follow him on his homeless wanderings. I mean, get this guy on social security! I don't understand how he isn't on it already. He should be in a little apartment with a payee taking care of his monthly needs. That should be the third act, getting him hooked up with a place to live and some sort of future. Then you can have him meet the guy from the bus again, have them talk it out....then he can beat the living shit out of him again. ROLL CREDITS!

    To me the issue is ownership of the "story".

    by v3d

    Does the Epic Beard Man or the guy who got the beat down have a piece of this? Does the person who shot the video? If you do something in public that another person records, who owns the story if someone decides to take artistic license and make a movie (and hopefully for them) a profit. That may be why the races have been switched up. Not necessarily because of being PC, but maybe to deny anyone a cut. But they do say "based on a true story" so who knows. Years ago George Lucas in a Wired interview ,talked about ownership of ones personal likeness. Can anyone take a picture of you for profit? Yeah, you can, but he felt you shouldn't be able to do that without permission or compensation of the person you took a picture of. Which is kind of ironic now since that story/rumor broke of him gaining licensing rights for dead actors.

  • I'll bet you your entire paycheck (from working the graveyard shift at Wendy's) that plenty of Blacks that I know, would say some old White Guy beating a Black Thug looking for trouble was justified. (And not the other way around as you may be quick to believe.) Obviously you have a new handle due to a possible banning,possibly due to using some racial perjorative am I right? If your going to disagree with say, Hipshot, then try to get your point across without calling someone a Knucle Dragger (racial slur, mind you.) it would at least say that you have some modicum of class which in fact you don't.

    by Hipshot

    I'm gonna let you in on a secret, and the fun thing is that AICN Klavern can know about it, and won't be able to help themselves. I'm performing a little experiment, with their help. I suspect that racism today is not a judgement call, but rather a form of OCD. So what I do is wait until someone starts spewing "blue gums" type comments, and then pop up. The local Klan immediately tries to attack me (I say "tries" because they'd have to actually have some firepower. These guys are pitiful). Now here's where the fun comes in. On other sites, and Facebook, I get into conversations with friends, mostly staunch Conservative Republicans, who believe racism doesn't exist. Oh, really? I post links to the page on which our local Klan has been spewing their hatred and fear. Reactions from these good, god-fearin' white folks? Horror. They literally had no idea. And the conversation deepens, good Americans on either side of the political divide standing against the minions of hate. Sniff sniff. Get all teary-eyed just thinking of how many Conservatives and Independents have had their eyes opened, thanks to the pinhead bigots of AICN (no more than 10% of you guys. Most of you are terrific). The fun thing, the REALLY fun thing is that I can say this right out front, and come "Red Tails" the OCD guys simply won't be able to help themselves, and I'll get a shitload of links to post. Hell, keep this up and Obama's re-election is a shoe it. Come on, Klavern! Don't leave me hanging! Countin' on ya! You know, a battle of wits, you sorry sheet-heads are unarmed.

    by ReportAbuse

    Just going by my study of sites like SF and VNNF, I would say there is very little sympathy with either major party and you'll find as much criticism of the Republicans as the Democrats on racially aware sites. I'd say the mainstream Republicans are in denial about the real state of racial politics in this country, just as the left is in denial of (or actively fomenting) anti-white racial politics. Another key to go by is to look at the comments section of major stories on news sites, and even marginal sites such as AICN ... you'll see a big disparity between the published story and the general tenor of the comments -- assuming they aren't heavily moderated or banned outright. People are starting to wake up ... they can't ban them fast enough to keep up the pretense.

    The real problem with the epic beard man video

    by Jaster Mareel

    Is that we miss what really started things off. When the video starts, EBM asks how much it would cost him for the black guy to spit shine his shoes. That's pretty fucking antagonizing! The black guy looks pissed off and asks "Why a brother gotta spit shine your shoes?", to which EBM says "You offered!" and continues, "It doesn't have to be a black guy, it could be a chinaman, it doesn't matter. What, you think I'm prejudiced? I'm not prejudiced." And it all escalates from there. So it's pretty fucking crucial that we know what the hell happened in the previous 5 minutes. My guess is that it was a misunderstanding on both parts. However, the black guy commands EBM to move to the front of the bus. Clearly not wanting a confrontation, EBM complies. Speaking as a guy, if some punk-ass tells me to move, I'll tell him to go fuck himself. So EBM had to swallow his pride to do that. By the way, that black guy looks about 25 at most.

    by ReportAbuse

    I'm all for getting the context of a situation. I think we need to go back further than 5 minutes though. I can't imagine why EBM would make that shoe shine comment out of the blue like that ... that makes no sense unless there was something said before it. I haven't watched the full video in a while, but I think something had to have been said before. Since you yourself indicate EBM said something like "You offered!" to the guy, that implies the black guy said something *first.* Maybe he made a negative comment about EBM's shoes, for all I know. --However, the black guy commands EBM to move to the front of the bus. Clearly not wanting a confrontation, EBM complies.-- I'll give EBM credit for that and it indicates that he wasn't totally insane as some people suggest. Myself, I'd say "I don't take orders from ..." (fill in the appropriate banned word) and then the ball is back in NEBM (Non-Epic Black Man's) court. Anyway, the whole thing is silly as shit when you consider a lot of the serious stuff that goes on every day. I still think the switching of the races in the video (whether it's a real movie or not is irrelevant) is objectionable and cowardly on the part of the producers. We may have to leave it at that. I am leery of getting into a long discussion here when I don't know if I'm going to get banned at any moment or if the thread will get "disappeared" as often happens. If you want uncensored and frank discussion, go to SF or VNNF. No punches pulled there.
