Terry Crews Is Returning To Office As Former U.S. President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho For Some Web Shorts!!

Published at: Aug. 7, 2012, 2:53 a.m. CST by The Kidd

The Kidd here...

It's a shame that IDIOCRACY never get the love and respect from Fox that it deserved with a full theatrical run before the studio buried the film. Instead, fans of Mike Judge were left to seek out and find the film that's way before its time and brilliant in its depiction of where society is headed, and through word of mouth and DVD, it's been able to find an appreciative audience. If you were to watch IDIOCRACY every day for the next month, the humor would still hold up, while, at the same time, the social commentary would get sadder and sadder as we got closer and closer to it becoming a bigger part of the real world. 

While it would be interesting to see what President Not Sure is up to these days, in trying to cure the world's problems with water, like from the toilet, and whether or not any sequels to ASS: THE MOVIE ever got made, the closest thing we'll ever get to a sequel looks to be in the works centered around Terry Crews' character from the film - the now former President of the States, former porn star and former five-time Ultimate Smackdown professional wrestling champion Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.

In an interview with Movieline, Crews revealed that, after plenty of persistence to possibly revist the character once again, he and Mike Judge are finally working on something of the sort. 

"Me and Mike [Judge] are talking right now with Fox about some Camacho stuff. We literally met with Fox a week ago. It’s so cool... We’re going to see what it becomes, but we got approval from Fox to do some stuff. We’re going to start off on the internet and do some small interstitials with Camacho... We’ve just got to gauge the interest and Fox wants to start slow… you’ve got to let it take off."

Who knows if it'll take place before IDIOCRACY or after, but what does it matter? Anything more from this view of our future is fine by me, so that makes at least one viewer they've got in the bag. 

And, if you haven't seen IDIOCRACY by now, you might want to correct that immediately.

    Love 'Idiocracy'

    by Trey Yeatts

    There were obviously some problems with it, judging by the excessive narration, but it's still a fantastic film that I recommend to just about anyone who might "get it."

    Fantastic film

    by photoboy

    Idiocracy was fantastic, and I'm sure it will probably end up being more prophetic about this planet's future than any science fiction film I've ever seen.

  • ...Office Space is the obvious (can't tell you how many times I've sent the Printer Beatdown scene to the IT guys) and I send clips from Idiocracy when upper management say,do,or send out something idiotic.Which is often.

    Probably the most brilliant comedy in 20 years

    by Itchy

    Despite the fact it was half finished and made for about $200, I find myself thinking about (and quoting) that movie more than other. Every time I see a new story about the Kardashians or watch an episode of Wipeout, I find myself explaining the movie to someone nearby and encouraging them to rent it. It really isn't even fair to call it a comedy - it's more just a sad prophecy whose only fault is that it predicted ruin in 500 years ... and we look to be on a much faster track.

    Re: The Problem With IDIOCRACY ...

    by ArmageddonProductions

    ... is, while it has some extremely funny stuff in it ("Welcome to Wal-Mart, I love you ...") and was an extremely well-made film for what it had to work with, is that anyone the film isn't poking not-so-subtle fun at (i.e. - most of the people who watch movies) can only laugh at it so much without realizing that the movie's less of a comedy than it is a terrifying prophecy of things to come. I tend to thing that if Fox had actually promoted the film and gotten it into a lot of theaters, it either would have caused a shitload of protests or been a Herculean bomb due to its denigration of ninety percent of the people who would have gone to see it. That being said, Judge is a genius and the movie is an unsettling masterpiece.

    BIG ASS FRIES

    by rich

    there is no "problem with idiocracy". it is perfect. the reason fox couldn't release it is the film tore up 100 different "brands" owned by "corporations". The film basically gave up the game of Americans being dumb fuck consumers. Not just of products, but of politics and news, and medical care. ironically, and perhpas fittingly, the price to pay for that is the film was not allowed in the consumer market. the film is that cool.

    You didn't read my whole post. I concurred there is no "actual" problem with IDIOCRACY, there's only a problem with why it's not generally regarded as a masterpiece. Unfortunately, the very people it's poking fun at are the ones who would be able to have decided its fate at the box office. The people who view it for what it is, far less in number than the other guys,. can walk outside their doors right now and realize it's actually well on its way to happening every day.

    Re: gooseud

    by ArmageddonProductions

    I remember the first time I watched it, I was shocked that it even got made. It basically indicted every person studios like Fox count on every summer for huge box office returns. When you look at it like that, it's easy to overlook the lack of budget or the ability to pull off a lot of the things Judge obviously wanted to do with the movie -- it's just amazing he was even able to pull it off or get it out there, period. Ten years from now, the few of us who are still able to think in terms of complete words or sentences will be treating it the same way people used to treat "1984".

    re: Gooseud

    by SK229

    The left may not be as dumb on the whole, but they sure as hell are still sheep. Obama is as much a product as Coca-Cola, and many of them still lap up the rhetoric when it's become ABUNDANTLY clear that he may be even more status quo than Bush. Look at his economic team: literally a who's who of those responsible for the meltdown. Larry Sommers is the biggest scumbag to ever walk the face of the earth and Goldman Sachs, where most of them have done time, is a fucking vampiric force on the world economy. We're in an 'I gots mines' world, where those at the top just keep filling those coffers by any means necessary and fuck you if you're not one of 'em. Nepotism in all the top positions is worse than ever and the problem with it is it's a brain and morality drain. Many of my wife's friends are investment bankers and nearly all of them got into it cause their father is a somebody, and you can tell that most of them have no concept of what went wrong and why it hurt people and why they don't deserve bonuses. The conflicts of interest going on in the medical industry and the banking industry are so blatant and obvious to anyone with a first grade education, yet they all act like there's nothing wrong... what they do over here, getting paid by this company couldn't possibly affect their work over here. Besides that, some of the biggest lies this country thrives on: that you NEED a college education and a house to put yourself into debt for the rest of your life, are STILL defended as almost a religion by otherwise intelligent people. So are all of the drugs peddled by big pharma. Just one example would be statins: do we really KNOW the long-term damage they cause? The science behind cholesterol is dodgy at best and almost all studies nowadays do not take co-factors into account because then it might involve finding the true culprit, the thing that REALLY kills us all, especially here in the good ole U.S. of A - STRESS. The entire medical profession has become obsessed with quantifying health in numbers and by 'managing' every single thing that bothers you through a pill you can take for the rest of your life. Like I said, otherwise intelligent people dutifully take whatever they're told without ever questioning the science behind it. Conflicts of interest abound here too... and while the otherwise intelligent person believes the CEO of XYZ company selling toasters or soda or movies would sell their mother's soul to the devil if it meant their stock would go up a quarter of a point, they believe 100% that the same all consuming greed just can't be true of the healthcare industry, the college-industrial system, politicians in THEIR party... or apple computer, lol. But let's play devil's advocate for a second on behalf of the corporations that actually do manufacture and sell things: if corporations continue to let the investment banks and the healthcare industry bankrupt us, who will be left to buy their shit? People in China working for $75 a month? India? Say what you will about Walmart, they at least sell tangible goods and are responsible for the fortunes of a lot of average people (I'm talking about people able to get their product into the stores, not the cashiers). What do Goldman and JP Morgan produce? How about the healthcare industry, other than piles of debt that we all collectively have to pay someday? It's all short-term interest, "I get mines" thinking... the long picture is the bankrupting of all the people who actually prop up the 99% by buying their shit, watching their entertainment, and eating their fast food. And then what? P.S. - I realize this post is all over the place, but when talking about this stuff, there are so many facets that all interconnect. And not discussing one of them allows the person listening to try to put you into a box and say, "A-ha! Bleeding heart liberal!", or, "A-ha! You're neocon, I knew it!" Basically all sides are fucked up and greedy to the point of fucking with the survival of a semi-civilized society. Unless the goal is complete atrophy ala 1984, then yeah, I guess we're on the right track.

    500 years WAS too long...it should have been 50.

    by zom-bot.com

    by 500, that society would have collapsed and restarted as something else. They had a president, sure, but how was ANYTHING getting made or done? the buildings were broken down, but people still functioning in them. Obviously no new ones were being built. they drove little smart cars, but who was making them- and how were the stupid people even able to repair them, etc? It's amazing that BRAWNDO or any other product could be manufactured at all, unless they showed that the cars and many of the products were made overseas. They never explained what was outside America- it was probably our chinese overlords letting America rot. it is prophetic, and every time we see fat wal-mart shopping breeders in SUV's with like 30 kids on their stick figure family window decals, my girlfriend and I cringe that yes, the smart people are not breeding fast or prolific enough to ever catch up with the stupid ones.

    sk, I totally agree with everything you say

    by gooseud

    I was just simplistically trolling our redneck idiot compatriots, because they usually are genetically incapable of NOT responding with some idiotic rant about elitist liberals. I agree though. Ive said many times:how did we go from being able to cure diseases left and right in the first half of the 20th century, with a fraction of the technology, to suddenly being unable to cure anything? Answer: because why would the medical community want to CURE anything? If you cure it, you lose a customer!! The answer is never to cure it, but just create drugs you are FORCED to take for the rest of your life to MANAGE the aforementioned condition. Then, turn around and charge the insurance companies massive prices for the aforementioned "required" drugs. Its all a giant scam, and I truly believe (this is not a troll job at all) that nothing short of a complete collapse of the system will resolve it. Not like the Great Recession, but more like environmentally created total collapse. We have become apathetic, indolent, and stupid. Idiocracy is a reality, not 500 years from now, but right now.

    From the Wikipedia page on "The Marching Morons", in reference to how the society in "Idiocracy" was able to (barely) function: "The cultural elite has become extinct, but the decaying society is kept somewhat functional by machines, and the government is actually run on behalf of a few mega-corporations. These corporations are staffed and directed by morons with the limited aid of management computers programmed during the more intelligent past."

People in the past used to throw their shit out the window into the street where everyone walks. That being said when I first read the title of the article I thought Terry Crews was going to be on the Office on NBC. More Terry Crews on every show, he is good on Newsroom.

    Those (superciliously) saying the movie isn't funny are either pretentious or just WRONG. Dinner For Schmucks wasn't funny. Idiocracy was pure brilliance. (Yes, the finale is sort of hollow, but so what? Judge ran out of money) Even with the budget slashed and the film mothballed, Idiocracy is the funniest movie of the 21st Century if not one of all time. Just look at all the quotes above. Buttfuckers and Ow! My Balls!, without even trying are worth the purchase price. But the moments of pure genius and hilarity are the already mentioned Doctor Justin Long scene, the Carl's Junior scene, Frito clapping and grunting when his own car gets blown up, and The Brawndo/Electrolytes president's cabinet scene. And then, "Hell, I thought there was two of you." St. God's, Ass, etc. etc. I can't stop thinking of funny scenes and dialogue. How many movies can boast that? And while I like Office Space alot, Idiocracy is epic in comparison.

Comparing it to 1984?? Okay, you're cool because you saw it and told all of your friends to watch it. You sir, are the last bastion of hope for humanity...because all we need is for everyone to watch Idiocracy and we can avoid the terrible outcome depicted in the film. The movie is funny and is supposed to make you feel uncomfortable about the possible future our society could have if we don't change our priorities but, fuck, I feel fairly safe in saying we won't be watering our plants with fucking Mountain Dew.

    Others compared it to 1984...

    by SK229

    I meant that the current path we're on is more likely to lead to a 1984 type world than Idiocracy. Because it's plainly simple that at some point, if we continue on this trajectory of the majority of people having to make due with less while getting raped by the banks and healthcare industry (and expanding government) then there will be nobody left to buy all of this garbage. The bankers and politicians DO NOT CARE. They're just hoarding money. Say Samsung goes out of business... or Apple... guess what, most of those people at the top are still part of the 1%. They'll just go do something else. Or they'll just sit on their money. But I don't see us becoming corporate zombies when the majority of us no longer have two nickels to rub together. It may very well be that the rich will just be rich and stay that way, and in a strange way, at some point it will have very little to do with having the most money, but power, keeping it, and passing it down to your children. You're either 'in it' or you're not in it and that's how it will remain. This all sounds like conspiracy theory bullshit, I realize that... anyway, I have to go now, this internet might be getting through my aluminum foil head gear.

    Idiocracy is an exageration of today

    by rich

    and it's brilliant. It's not supposed to be telling the future as much as commenting on where we are and extrapoloating in an exagerated and comedic way. I know people who arn't saving a cent to retire who have new cars, data plans and houses in the suburbs. they arn't stupid, just short sighted. people eat inddustrial crap and are terrified of real food. look at people shopping carts. diabetis, obesity, heart disease, cancel. it's killing us. have you read about the concept of delayed gratification being a true indicator of intellgance. A kid who can pass up one marshmellow with the promise of 2 tomorrow is going to do much better in life than the kid who takes the 1. We already are consumer zombies. maybe that's why we profess our love of god so much, we're tyring to make up for the empty lives we have. Jesus aint gonna save you from your mortgage on your mcmansion or your SUV payment or your diabetis. But he'll make you feel better about because you'll have eternal bliss when it's all over. Is that why faith in AmeriJesus is so popular. because this life we have is so terrifying because we don't have the capacity to plan for the future. so we invent a magic america jesus who's going to make it all better someday. it's the perfect american consumer religion. all you ahve to do is believe and all your problems are solved, for eternity. instant salvation. just add faith. that's one thing idiocracy did not talk about at all, religion.
