They Live Vs. Timmy and Jimmy

I found this video at Lazy Eye Theatre, and it is seven shades of awesome. And it is related to the next post I am going to put up (which will be my 10 favorite South Park episodes).

The mastermind behind this video has taken the epic fight between Rowdy Roddy Piper and Keith David from They Live and interspersed the homage scenes between Jimmy and Timmy from the South Park episode Cripple Fight.

I didn't know how closely the South Park scene followed the action from that movie, but after seeing the two together, I am heartily impressed by the accuracy that Parker and Stone were able to wring from that scene. It is stunning really.

This happens quite often due to the difficulty in animating fight sequences and can also serve as a hat tip to an animator's favorite scenes.

There's a clip running around from the anime Naruto set side-by-side with one from Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, showing exactly the same thing.

What isn't shown in that clip is that the animators of Bebop borrowed that fight sequence from Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon".

See what I mean?

pretty cool. Now I only need to watch the film (I know I probably missed a classic) because the whole fight doesn't make sense haha.

Pand0ra: Trey and Matt fully acknowledge that it is an homage to They Live in the commentary for the scene.

Arjan: Well, I think you do get a sense of the movie from that scene, yeah.
