The Ballad Of G.I. Joe (Video)

Posted by G-Man (29481 posts) - - Show Bio

Despite critics not being able to review the movie early and all the hate over it, G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra did pretty well at the box office.  I read a report that a sequel is going to happen.  The main characters have contracts to return but apparently Stephen Sommers doesn't have to.  I'll leave it up to you if you think that's a good thing or not.  
 
To celebrate their victory at the box office, Funny Or Die has released The Ballad Of G.I. Joe.  I have no words to describe it.
 

 
 
Oh and check out the cameos here too.

Julianne Moore as Scarlett....although the lighting was not kind to her face.  Henry Rollins!!!!    It tried to be funny but I really didn't laugh.  It still is awful but the cameos helped.

If they didn't have famous people showing up out of the blue in that video, I would have not watched it for as long as I did lol, Joe Blowssss

That was awesome. My favorite was Cobra Commander.
 
I never felt the same way about Sgt. Slaughter after he went to work for the Iron Sheik.

just because it sold alot of tickets and made alot of money doesnt mean its a good movie, there are thousands of films that prove that point

He just gave a interview saying he and ALL the main cast were waiting on the final green light, but that they would be back with part 2 next year.

It's from Funny Or Die so it's fair game.

This might be the biggest celebrity nerd compilation ever. I can't believe they got that many celebs.

I may be ruffling some feathers here, but I really think Snake Eyes sucks at painting.

ALEXIS BLEDEL FTW.
 
Only thing that would have made this video better is if they had Lauren Graham as Baroness.
