So, there’s a new Incredible Hulk movie coming out (is it a sequel? a remake? what?), starring everyone’s favorite action hero, Ed Norton. I saw the trailer the other day on HDNet and something really bothered me.

It was so obviously filmed in Toronto.

If you’re going to cheap out and film a movie that takes place in New York in Toronto, at least make an effort.

You can watch the trailer here:

(Trailer one is the worst offender, so that’s the one I’m citing in this post)

At 1:03, you can clearly see the outside of Just Imagine Printing in Hamilton, a suburb of Toronto:

I couldn’t find a pic, but here’s their website. Notice the logo similarity.

Second, in this scene, the bad guy (played by a resurrected Tim Roth), runs past Toronto titty bar Zanzibar:

And here’s a real pic, from my archives (notice how they covered up the “Toronto’s” on the next door sign with some indecipherableness):

I also noticed a second clue in the “CashMoney” sign right behind Tim Roth’s character:

Since when did we start spelling “Check” as “Cheque” in the States?

Finally:

1. This is obviously Sam The Record Man:

2. This is the Pizza Pizza next to the Eaton Centre…they always have giant pictures of pizza on this wall, as seen here:

and, finally,

3. If you squint, you can just make out a CTV logo right next to my “3”:

Guys, try a bit harder next time…

Gah

I had a David Cross moment1 yesterday.

I’d gone on a long drive, as I tend to do some weekends in order to take photos for my photoblog, LeftyRodriguez.Com, and found myself in the town of Bonham, Texas, which is northeast of Dallas close to the border with Oklahoma (or Texas’ Canada). I felt a bit peckish, but the fast food restaurants I could find were Subway (ugh…) and McDonald’s. Throwing caution to the wind, I settled on McDonald’s. I parked the RiflemanMobile III and went inside, electing to order a couple of Spicy McChickens and an order of fries (yum…sodium).

After getting my order, I went to the condiment bar and was gathering some salt and pepper and ketchup from those annoyingly-slow pressurized ketchup dispensers when this big, burly, kind of toothless redneck guy pushed himself past me to get some salt and said “Watch out, faggot”.

“Watch out, faggot”? Huh? I don’t look particularly faggot-ish (though I guess I might be kind of bear-ish), but, really, I’m not gay. Sorry. Or maybe I’m so gay that I’ve come full circle and like women. Or something.

Maybe it was the sort-of plaid shorts I was wearing.

1Here’s a little what it was like for me growing up in Atlanta… They had this ill-fated thing called ‘Light Up Atlanta’. So, I’m standing in line… I tap the guy in front of me and say, “Uh, excuse me, can you tell me if this is the line for the beer, or the line to get the tickets to get the beer.’ [long pause] ‘I dunno, faggot.’ I don’t know, faggot? What? What did I do? Was it because I was sucking his cock at the time?”

So, I’ve been shopping for new tv and went to the Conn’s website to check out their prices and selection. While there, I stumbled across this wonderful deal:

That’s a great deal…imagine what you could do with all that money you save when buying at the sale price compared to the regular price!

MLK Would Be Proud

Someone snapped this cell phone pic last week on MLK Day. Your spelling isn’t helping the cause.

Edit: Hey, dumbfuck who posted a comment that just said “Fake”. I’m gonna go with Snopes on this one rather than your anonymous claim.
