Welcome to today's edition of Nerd Alert, where we have all the off-beat, nerdy news for you in one convenient spot. What do we have in store for you on this fun Friday? Mad Max: Fury Road's Coma the Doof Warrior gives guitar tips, radio controlled Star Wars vehicles are unveiled and one Amazon support specialist goes to hilarious lengths for a customer by pretending to be Thor. But first, we have an amazing transforming Hulk car, and Elmo cooks on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. So, sit back, relax, and check out all that today's Nerd Alert has to offer.
Amazing Hulk Car Custom Paint Job
For those who love their car as much as superhero movies, German graffiti artist Rene Turrek has debuted a custom paint job for a BMW X6, which, at first, looks like any normal, blue BMW. But, when the paint is exposed to hot water, the car turns into a Hulk-mobile, with the Green Goliath's face showing up on the hood, and more designs on the door. I have no idea what kind of paint does this, but it's still rather impressive.
Mad Max: Fury Road Guitar Tips From Coma the Doof Warrior
We've highlighted the flamethrowing guitar stylings of Mad Max: Fury Road's Coma the Doof Warrior (Iota) on Nerd Alert before, but now Funny or Die has an amusing take on the character with a new video where he offers a few helpful hints if you want to start your own apocalyptic wasteland guitar truck thing.
Elmo Cooks With Jimmy Fallon
The beloved Sesame Street character Elmo dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this week, where he showed Jimmy Fallon, Questlove and Jason Schwartzman how to make a few recipes from the new Sesame Street cookbook Let's Cook. The result is quite humorous, although I'm not sure how delicious a waffle grilled cheese sandwich would be.
The Five Stages Of Watching a Pixar Movie
With Inside Out opening in theaters today, How It Should Have Ended has put together a brief but hilarious two-minute short that breaks down the five stages of watching a Disney Pixar movie. While it's very accurate, it unfortunately reminds us that the studio is sadly continuing their least-beloved franchises.
Woody Harrelson's True Detective Character Reacts to Game of Thrones Season 5 - SPOILERS
First, there will be several spoilers in the above video for Game of Thrones Season 5, so watch at your own risk. Hordes of fans have very strong reactions to many different aspects of Game of Thrones this season, but Ozzy Man Reviews has cut together a hilarious video where Woody Harrelson's True Detective character Martin Hart reacts to some of this season's more shocking moments, including the rape of Sansa, and, of course, the death of Jon Snow. It seems Marty was just as big a Jon Snow fan as the rest of us.
Star Wars Radio Controlled Helicopters
Bandai Namco's subsidiary CCP has unveiled three new Star Wars radio controlled helicopters that are miniaturized versions of the Millennium Falcon, an X-Wing ship and a TIE fighter. We don't know exactly how much these will cost, but they will be available for purchase on August 1.
An Amazon Support Specialist Plays Thor In a Live Chat
This is a bit old, first surfacing back in August of last year, but I saw this on a friend's Facebook page last night and I just had to include it in today's Nerd Alert. The photo above is reportedly from an actual Amazon customer service chat (although I don't know if it's ever been verified as authentic), where a service rep introduces himself as Thor, which prompts the customer to ask if he can be Odin. Seamlessly, they go back and forth with a hilarious conversation in the Thor vernacular. Even if this isn't real, we should all hope to get a customer service person as awesome as this guy.
Jurassic World Wiener Dog Parody
Anna Schatte has put together a hilarious parody of Jurassic World, cutting together scenes from the trailer with her own wiener dog footage to make Jurassic Weenie. It's not even a minute long, but it's rather clever, with a shot at the end that even mocks the mosasaurus eating the shark scene.
That wraps it up for today's Nerd Alert. Do you have any suggestions for future Nerd Alert columns? Hit us up on Twitter @MovieWeb and send us your suggestions, and it may even make it in the next edition. Check back on Monday for the next installment of Nerd Alert.
