Welcome to today's edition of Nerd Alert, where we have all the quirky, nerdy news that you crave in one convenient spot. What do we have in store for you on this fantastic Friday? One crafty fan creates an incredible replica of Game of Thrones' Iron Throne, Ice-T voices characters from 1980s cartoons and the late Chris Farley becomes a part of Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. But first, we have senior citizens reacting to the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. So, sit back, relax and check out all that today's Nerd Alert has to offer.
Elders React To Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Trailer
Earlier this month, Warner Bros. debuted the second trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in front of a packed crowd in Hall H during Comic-Con. The fine folks at Fine Brothers Entertainment have put together a video where "elders" react to this epic trailer. What's interesting is some of these seniors are just as giddy as any kid might be.
A 5th-Grader's Tribute to Arnold Schwarzenegger
During last night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the talk show celebrated the 68th birthday of action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger. This youngster named Luke took the stage, doing a hilarious impression of Arnie, while wearing a cardboard cutout that displays a muscular physique. Now we know who to turn to if the demand ever rises for a much younger Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation opens in theaters today, and by now, you've likely seen the incredible plane stunt that Tom Cruise pulls off. You may recall that, 20 years earlier, the comedy Tommy Boy starring Chris Farley featured a similar stunt. With that in mind, Youtuber Todd Spence has cut together footage from both films to create an entertaining mashup trailer that works a lot better than you may think.
Game of Thrones Fan Creates Incredible Iron Throne Replica
While we impatiently await the arrival of new Game of Thrones episodes next year, one fan decided to make her very own version of the Iron Throne. Mirror UK caught up with Victoria Maclean, a housewife from Wales who spent four months constructing this incredible replica, which has even been given the stamp of approval by HBO and the show's creators, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff.Some of the show's stars, such as Mark Addy (Robert Baratheon) and Kerry Ingram (Shireen Baratheon), even posed for photos on this Iron Throne replica. Since the Throne has been approved by HBO, Victoria's throne has been hired out throughout the U.K. for conventions and weddings. Since there are only two Iron Thrones in the U.K., it's possible that this fan-made version may even make it on the show some day.
Ice-T Lends His Unique Voice to 1980s Cartoons
Ice-T stopped by NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, where the actor/musician revealed that he "voiced" several characters from 1980s cartoons. The video shows this versatile performer lending his voice to The Care Bears, Smurfs and even a current animated TV series, Dora the Explorer, where he pokes a little fun at Jimmy Fallon's broken hand. Ice-T is truly a man of many talents.
Donald Trump "Disgusting" Montage
Earlier this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the late night talk show host put together a humorous montage of Presidential candidate Donald Trump saying what is apparently one of his favorite words, "disgusting." The montage comes in response to claims by a lawyer, who was called "disgusting" by Donald Trump for wanting to take a break to pump breast milk for her child. Stay classy, Donald Trump.
Game of Thrones Banners For Pop Culture Figures
In HBO's hit series Game of Thrones, each family, or "house," has a sigil, a symbol that represents each family name. Deviant Arts artist Lokiable has created house sigils for a number of beloved characters in pop culture, such as Bruce Wayne, Bilbo Baggins, Peter Parker, Jack Sparrow, Captain America and many more. Obviously these won't be popping up in Westeros anytime soon, but they do indeed represent each of these characters quite accurately.
