Um, This: A Trailer For “The Governator”

It’s a joke, right?

We’ve heard about this possibility before, but here’s an actual trailer for “The Governator,” and, yes, it’s a cartoon about the former Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, being developed by Stan Lee (!), with a cameo by Larry King and the ubiquitous Black Eyed Peas on the soundtrack:

Words fail. A late April Fool’s joke? Saturday morning cartoon or feature? What is this? It’s obviously meant as self-parody, but… well, it is what it is, whatever it is. I won’t accept it as a real thing until it’s actually released.  And even then, I’m not sure.

UPDATE: TV show in 2012, 3-D movie in 2013. It is.

    Walking in the presence of giants here. Cool thinking all arnuod!

  2. Jim Simonetti says:

    the weirdest part of this clip was the random kids in the GOVERNATOR’S basement. Where the fuck did they come from?

  3. Hurricane Ditka says:

    I didn’t know that San Fransisco had such bad crime

  4. Charles Thurston says:

    oh Stan Lee, all about the coulda not about the shoulda. this looks WONDERFULLY HORRIBLE.

  5. b says:

    lol its duke nukem next gen

  6. Chu says:

    I can forgive the Iron Man/Transformers/Voltron ripoff and the tired 27 year old catchphrase but I don’t see anyone asking the REAL question here: why are super powerful robots stealing money?

  7. Beeznitchio says:

    That looks ridiculously fun. I am not sure that feeling can hold past one or two episodes though.

  8. Fred says:

    I know he destroyed the public school system in California but I’m just glad something good came out of it. Horaaaaaay!

  9. Luci says:

    Worst result of the Armor Wars ever >.<

  10. Annecoultersadamsapple says:

    When my grandpa got old he forgot to wash dishes or throw out old food. Stan Lee gets old and does this.

  11. kyleawhile says:

    I believe that the art style resembles that of the Boondocks animated series. Hopefully this is all a big joke from Aaron McGruder and his animation team. If not I believe that it is a sign of an impending apocalypse.

    The last group to drop a bomb this big was the crew of the Enola Gay.*

    It can’t be worse than the cartoons I watched when I was a kid

    Exhibit A: The Bots Master

    This could either be one of the greatest cartoons ever or one of the worst. Can’t wait! 🙂
