The Stat Line of the Night – 8/22/10 – Jason Heyward
Slap Shot Inception Spoof Trailer (Video)
If you haven’t seen Christopher Nolan’s recent dreamy masterpiece, ‘Inception,’ then you should put on some pants and head to the movie theater right now to see it. If you have seen it, then good for you. You’ve also probably Google’d as much about the movie as you possibly can, trying to figure it all out. Upon searching for answers, you more than likely stumbled upon fake ‘Inception’ trailers, too. There’s roughly a trailer with the ‘Inception’ trailer edited in for every movie ever made.
Team America? Check.
Dumb and Dumber? Check.
Slap Shot? Check.
And the list goes on.
You can pretty much make any movie look like an award worthy flick by putting the ‘Inception’ trailer music by Hans Zimmer over clips from said movie. The ‘Inception’ styled trailer of ‘Slap Shot,’ the 1977 movie starring Paul Newman and Michael Ontkean, turns the actual comedy into what looks like one of the most dramatic hockey thrillers in the history of film. That’s a strong testament to just how much Zimmer’s music adds to a movie’s greatness.
I dare you to watch this and not feel like the original ‘Slap Shot’ was sold short.
