In Which LEGO Spider-Man Gets a Taste of WHIPLASH

If there’s one performer from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films who would be quickly welcomed back by fans, it would probably be J.K. Simmons. His performance as J. Jonah Jameson was so pitch perfect that he could easily step back into the role and not miss a step in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Simmons has moved on to play Commissioner James Gordon in the upcoming Justice League film, a new parody video mashes up Simmons’ first comic book movie role and his recent Oscar-winning performance.

Via Laughing Squid, YouTube user The Brick Ranger posted a brief and very NSFW animated clip that mashes up Simmons’ turn in Whiplash and a LEGO version of Jameson. Within Whiplash, Simmons played Terence Fletcher, a conductor who was known to be emotionally and verbally abusive towards his students. Fletcher claimed that this was his way of pushing his charges towards greatness. In Marvel’s comic book universe, Jameson has definitely hurled his fair share of abuse towards Peter Parker and his alter-ego, Spider-Man. But Jameson has never seemed quite as cruel as Fletcher.

For the parody, Spider-Man was subbed in for an unfortunate trombone player who was out of tune during a rehearsal. The audio was taken from a particularly intense scene in Whiplash; which you can see below. Fair warning: it’s not the easiest thing to watch.

The Brick Ranger regularly posts LEGO animated videos on his YouTube channel.
