Funny (If Too Soon): United300 -- Spartans Vs. Skyjackers

In somewhat poor taste, given the 9/11 hijackings.

Which is why I'm happy they followed the Hollywood bowlderizing code and changed the terrorists to Germans. If they used Musllims or ("Persians") it would have been too real and not funny at all.

Errmm... now that I watch the whole thing, that shot of the Spartans pushing the meal-cart was ill-advised.

Thanks to dri. Better click quick; the last upload was "deleted by the user" (in other words, censored by YouTube).

Deleted Again! I guess it's being deleted as it was part of the MTV movie awards, and Viacom is at war with YouTube.

Dri provides this new link, which isn't on YouTube and so should work.

Again, a warning: Watching it in full, and reflecting, I really don't know that 9/11 parodies are cool yet. That shot of the meal-cart is just a bad idea, and unavoidably recalls that which is necessary to forget in order to enjoy this.

Still, I sort of like the idea of American air-travellers becoming Spartans in response to a skyjacking. So I'm more inclined to view it as a tribute that a mocking parody.
