Too Much Coffee
For all those diehard Inception fans mourning last night's Best Picture outcome, Rooster Teeth Productions, an extraordinarily popular production group headquartered in Austin, Texas, has released a hilarious Inception/Family Guy satirical video. Specifically, this parody serves as a fantastically funny tribute of Christopher Nolan's masterpiece. Hopefully, it will help cure us all from our dissatisfied Oscar lull.
I want to take a moment to provide a rather brief backstory concerning the brains behind the Rooster Teeth Short gang and their vast YouTube fame. They're a production group that specializes in the creation of live action shorts. The group, mostly comprised of college buddies, shot to Internet fame with their humorous collection of Halo spoof videos, entitled Red vs. Blue: The Blood Gulch Chronicles. Rooster Teeth Shorts is their sketch comedy series that parodies, among other things, office life. The series features the staff of Rooster Teeth, who all play caricatures of themselves.
This parody is fraught with tawdry sex jokes, a bank robbery, a disastrous smoking incident inside a limited oxygen international space station, overt Family Guy references, and above all, clever allusions to Inception. It is Town meets Inception meets Family Guy; a story within a story—driven by the negligible realities of memory-induced dreaming, originating from the characters of Family Guy. Enjoy!
