Trolling Iron Man


Superheroes can play fantasy football too and more importantly, they can talk trash like them rest of them! 

Paul Rudd and Robert Downey Jr. have been participating in the AGBO Superhero Fantasy Football Charity league. This resulted in one of the funniest trolls from Paul Rudd to his opponent Iron Man, himself, Robert Downey Jr. Watch the video below to checkout Antman’s parody of (Black Sabbath’s) Iron Man.

More Disney shows ending

This past week we’ve been hearing reports from Cast Members that they are receiving their “end of run” notices for ‘Mickey and the Magical Map’ and ‘Frozen – Live at the Hyperion’. Sadly, this means that Disney will be laying off over 200 actors from these shows.

The concept of shows ending at Disney parks is nothing new but it usually is tied to something new coming. This change is due to the pandemic and it’s heartbreaking to see that so many Cast Members won’t have the opportunity to say their goodbyes and provide their farewell performances they way that others have. 

Since the stages will still be there, we hope Disney will reconsider and allow these performers to come back for a final set of special shows or some kind of Disney Parks Live event to give the shows a proper send off. 

To all of the Cast Members that brought us ‘Mickey and the Magical Map’ and ‘Frozen – Live at the Hyperion’: thank you. Please enjoy this performance of Mickey and the Magical Map from our YouTube channel:

Halloween effects!

Halloween is rapidly approaching and if you’re into decorating your home, you should check out the Wicked Makers YouTube channel!

Jamie and Jay’s channel is filled with some really great DIY videos (it’s not just Halloween) but they do market their channel as “DIY Projects and Skulls”.

Below are a couple of their videos that we talked about in this episode which is how to recreate fireflies and how to create realistic fake fire special effects, similar to those you see on Pirates of the Caribbean. Enjoy!
