Godzilla is more than just the King of the Monsters. He’s the King of the Mash-up.
All over the Internet, people have taken to remixing everyone’s favorite radioactive lizard in anticipation of his triumphant return to the big screen. The projects range from the obvious (“Breaking Bad,” anyone?) to the insanely weird (Godzilla song remixes), but they all show how we react to Godzilla in the Internet age.
So take a look and a listen at some of our favorite viral vids starring our favorite movie monster.
“Breaking Bad Meets Godzilla”
We mocked this one up, because it just makes sense. Bryan Cranston stars as Walter White, a chemistry teacher turned mad scientist, who accidentally creates Godzilla in his secret lab. Actually, can we see that movie? We’ll give you all the money to see that movie.
“Jurassic Park” Meets “Godzilla” in this mash-up, which uses the audio of the second “Godzilla” trailer and puts it over, you guessed it, clips from “Jurassic Park.” Another one that is too perfect not to make.
“Godzilla of Steel”
This trailer mash-up of “Godzilla” and “Man of Steel” should serve to remind you how much destruction there actually was in the last Superman movie, and how freakin’ scary it would be if Superman actually existed.
The folks of Amity Island just can’t catch a break. First, they have to deal with a giant shark. Now, a giant lizard. You’re welcome for this one.
Hey, it would be better than “Jaws: The Revenge.”
Told you there were some weird ones. Ever wondered what it would sound like if all your favorite songs had the Godzilla roar in them? No? Well too bad. The Godzilla Remix Project does just that, and it is strangely fascinating to listen to “Happy” or “Wild Wild West” just waiting for the famous roar to come in for a solo.
“Pacific Rim vs. Godzilla”
The very positive reviews for “Godzilla” make it sound like an even better “Pacific Rim,” but you know what would be better than both of them? Combining them. What happens when giant robots fight Godzilla? Awesome happens.
