Yogi, We Hardly Knew Ye

Oh, for…

Here’s a video claiming not to be related to the about-to-be-unleashed “Yogi Bear” movie, an allegedly one-man creation, a parody of “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” in which…

SPOILER ALERT…

Ah, whatever. Boo Boo kills Yogi. Blows his brains out with a rifle.

Even if you could have lived without ever seeing a CGI Yogi Bear get shot in the head by Boo Boo, and even if you suspect this might have been done by someone inside — it’s hard to imagine that anyone would be able to pull this off solo — you gotta admit that it’s pretty impressive.

Plus running the real movie’s credits and jaunty music over a shot of a dead Yogi is probably a better closing shot than the real movie has.

    That doesn’t make me want to see Yogi Bear, but it definitely makes me want to watch The Assassination of Jesse James (…) again.

    Awesome, I’m still not going to see the movie though.

  3. impressive. and to those horrified, this weekend well over 500 non-cgi bears had their heads/bodies enhanced with bullet holes. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/2010/12/13/2010-12-13_new_jerseys_first_bear_hunt_in_five_years_kill_589_animals.html?r=news

    I think this video is amazing, if only studios knew how to display that level of emotion in a CGI bear. The eyes of the both of them is haunting, almost as powerful as the actual scene in the Assassination of Jesse James.

    I hate to be that guy but that’s a shotgun not a rifle…
    I’m leaving, I’m leaving. Don’t worry.

  6. I’d like to see them do this with Booboo being the Cookie Bouquet Bomber, too.

  7. Teague says:

    If this is really not from the studio, it has to rank among the greatest independent viral videos of all time. An absolute masterpiece.

    I hear Oscar buzz about Yogi already.
