I Don't Remember Eating the Lightning, But I'm Sure Crapping Thunder Now: Rocky: Das Musical Trailer

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trailers | April 30, 2013 | Comments ()

Here's the trailer, complete with the Italian Stallion himself pontificating on the project:

Oh sweet zombie Jesus with a chainsaw, can we just scrap the idea of making it follow the plot of the first movie and make it a tale of all of the movies. I would pay money to go see a musical rendition of "If he dies, he dies." And Mr. T predicting pain a capella? I'm there.

And let's not forget the sheer camp majesty of Eye of the Tiger. That's a mandatory inclusion. Actually come to think of it, I think every song in the entire musical should be the actors singing this:

It's the eye of the tiger
mmm, mmm ma ma
na na na na na RIVAL!
da daa mmm na ma

And every once and a while, someone will scream "Adrian!" or throw a punch. Which is three-fourths of what I remember about the films other than the homoerotic knee socks:
