Mega-“Tournament of Nerds,” Live On Tape From San Diego

We have so much Tournament of Nerds for you on the Nerdist Channel today, it’s not funny. No, wait, I don’t mean… see, it IS funny, very funny, but there’s a lot, so much that we needed to do it in three videos with three rounds, all taped before a live audience at the YouTube Lounge during San Diego Comic-Con International. The Round 1 matchups — you know by now that the debate is who would win in a fight, right? — are video game characters Link from The Legend of Zelda vs. Pac-Man, cartoon characters Jem vs. My Little Pony (well, hello, Bronies), partial human Spock vs. mostly human Cliff Huxtable, and — we’re serious here — the plants from The Happening vs. noted milkshake drinker Daniel Plainview from There Will Be Blood.

And here’s Round 2:

Finally, Round 3:

Your hosts, as always, are the genial Justin Donaldson and Hal Rudnick. Place your bets and see who won.

  1. Oh my god I was there at the YouTube Fan Lounge and couldn’t stop laughing for over an hour. The guys that did Daniel Plainview and HW were perfect and I couldn’t get enough of them.

    Lil Pony looks like a GELF (http://www.reddwarf.co.uk/database/index.cfm?section=gelfs). The horror!

    Also I propose battle of the holograms. Something like Rimmer from Red Dwarf vs. Emergency Medical Hologram from Voyager.
