A Rallying Cry for the Reversal of Shriveling Testicles

I don’t actually like the idea of this fan-made trailer for The Expendables, which pits men against women, The Expendables vs. Eat, Pray, Love. First of all, 70 percent of Jason Statham’s fanbase is women, and second, it’s reductive bullshit. Both movies kind of look like crap — Eat, Pray, Love because it’s socioeconomic elitist bullshit, and The Expendables because, I fear, it won’t be the ’80s All Star Action flick we’re all hoping for. And besides: Ask Agent Bedhead which movie she’d rather see, and I’d wager a Godtopus tentacle that she’d prefer to watch The Expendables half a dozen times before she watched Eat, Pray, Love once.

But … the trailer is so well made, and so much fun, that I kind of can’t help but to be won over by it. It’ll make your testicles grow three sizes. It’s true. It’s science. And I just went out and ripped a stranger’s spine out of his back and drank from his neck.
