Just Call Me ARRRRRtard!
Why am I an R tard? Well, see Exhibit A above. Yeah, its a billboard right off my freeway exit of the new Mummy movie. So I've been seeing that billboard for about a month and a half now, and every time I drove by it, wondered who the new Mummy was going to be. I always resolved when I got home to look it up on IMDB, only to assuage my own curiosity, but there's so many things I see when driving that I want to check out when I go home, that I end up just forgetting.
Then a couple weeks after I saw this billboard, more started appearing, with the subtitle: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. It didn't occur to me that the word "dragon" would signify ASIAN. No, it didn't click. I thought that something around the eyes looked somewhat familiar, but I didn't know who it could possibly be, because here I am thinking Egyptian.
Fast forward to about a week and a half ago when I finally saw Dark Knight. Well, one of the trailers was for the latest Mummy movie...and I'm sitting there saying to myself, "Oh yeah I've been wondering who the new Mummy is supposed to be..." and I'm sitting there a little bemused in the theater...when suddenly, I see who it is.
Muthafuckin' JET LI.
I sat up and was like, "OMFG JET LI!!!!!!!!!!111111!!" in the theater, and then /facepalmed, because all of a sudden there was a montage of images in my brain of everything I just said and it clicked. *sigh*
