RiffTrax Takes On a Classic!

Here it is!  The ACTUAL Super-Classic and Super-Famous movie we’re riffing.

One of the most beloved movies of all time is about to get the RiffTrax treatment. Our MP3 riff on the super-famous 1939 classic THE WIZARD OF OZ arrives Friday, January 17th!  That’s less than a week from today.

Since this will be an MP3 Commentary, we’re giving you some advance notice so you can get the movie (like from Amazon: http://riff.me/OzAmazon).

We love this movie and will be approaching it like we did our riff of CASABLANCA: as a dear old friend we’re spending time with to share a few laughs. THE WIZARD OF OZ will be no worse for the wear.  We’ll put in back where we found it!  

Enjoy!

Finally, this movie is also NOT…

…the Super-Classic and Super-Famous movie that RiffTrax will be announcing ANY MOMENT NOW.

We all know that unlike the original K-9 movie and its first sequel K-911 — which were despicable garbage — the SECOND sequel K-9: P.I. is a modern cinematic masterpiece beloved by all.  So many of you were guessing that K-9: P.I. would be the amazingly well-known and critically acclaimed film that we’ll be riffing soon that I thought I’d better set the record straight. 

However: the film we’re announcing will be almost as famous, classic, for the ages, etc. This I guarantee!  I swear it on the honor of K-9: P.I.!

Also NOT the Super-Classic and Super-Famous movie…

…that RiffTrax will be announcing soon, though plenty of you nice folks probably assumed so. NOPE, EVEN FAMOUS-ER THAN THIS.

Shockingly, this is ALSO not…

…the Super-Classic and Super Famous movie that RiffTrax will be taking on soon. (Very soon.)  (HOW soon?)  (VERY.)

Riffing a bona fide CLASSIC

RiffTrax will soon announce a riff of a super-classic, super-famous movie. Like, even more super-classic and super-famous than ERNEST GOES TO JAIL.  

Stay tuned!  (No, it is not a different ERNEST movie! Though they are all pure greatness!)

Too far, geeks.

You may have noticed an increasing number of people being caught plagiarizing works from people with talent. Inevitably what happens once someone is caught adapting a comic strip to a film, jokes from Twitter, or doing Patrice O’Neil’s bits on YouTube is they issue an entirely unconvincing and half assed non-apology.

No one buys your apology. No one.

With this handy form letter below you can get those pesky talented people off your back. I made this for you, the plagiarists out there, so feel free to claim this as your own (I didn’t have to tell you that, did I LOL)

 “Hello. 
Boy is my face red! You probably know me as (actor/pastor/guy who works at Subway) but I what I really want to do is (Have indie cred/be funny/be internet famous).I require accolades from strangers to feel good about myself, whether they be deserved or not. Crazy, right?!? 
You would think my level of notoriety for what I do would be enough, but it isn’t. See, I’m a special kind narcissistic. I see other people that are funny/successful and I NEED to have that is well. 
The problem is I lack talent in that area. Seriously. I can’t do it at all. Not even a little. 
So what I did was copy someone with actual talents work. I was not “Inspired”…It was not a “Homage”. It was theft of someone’s ideas. Someone with talent.
 This is the part where I could tell you about (insert personal tragedy/issue here) but I won’t insult your intelligence by dragging my personal problems into this. Believe me, I have A LOT of problems, none of which have anything to do with my conscious decision to try and pass off someone else’s work as my own.
 I would just like to take this opportunity to say with 100% sincerity:
 I am sorry I got caught. ”
