spongebob substitutes for film friday

May 9th, 2008     by Thea Lim     Comments

Film Friday is on hiatus this week!

In its place please enjoy this clip from one of my favourite movies. No, it’s not Fellini’s 8 1/2, it’s the SpongeBob SquarePants Movie!

SpongeBob and his best friend Patrick are sure that they’ll never make it to Shell City to rescue King Neptune’s crown. They lack the chops, they’re nothing but bubble blowing babies. But then suddenly and mysteriously they grow facial hair. Never mind where it came from - now armed with their new manliness they “can do anything.” Or can they? An incisive commentary on modern masculinity. For serious!

This clip is so subversive that Youtube has disabled the embedding function. No matter, you can still view it right here.
