(Youtube Direktpanda, via Geekosystem)

X-Posting von Nerdcore: Ihr kennt das Video oben, Internet-Meme und Netzklassiker, im Augenblick, wo ich das hier tippe, wurde das Ding 106.868.435 mal angesehen, laut Geekosystem das 45st beliebteste Video auf Youtube. Und bald gibt’s das niesende Pandababy im Kino.

Lesley Hammond und Jenny Walsh, aus deren 1999er Doku über Riesenpandas in China der Clip stammt, produzieren eine Mockumentary namens „The Life and Times of Sneezing Baby Panda“ mit einem Budget von 1,3 Mio. Dollar, Dreharbeiten beginnen im Herbst. Die Rechte an den Sequels „Dramatic Chipmunk strikes back“ und „Return of the Rickroll“ sowie den Spinoffs „How I learned to love Britney and she left me alone“, „Trollolo in the Rain“ und „The Silence of the LOLCats“ haben sie sich entgegen aller Gerüchte noch nicht gesichert.

Internet-Memes, coming to a Cinema near you. I break together. Snip vom Hollywood-Reporter:

The Life and Times of Sneezing Baby Panda is an upcoming mockumentary made for the big screen by Lesley Hammond and Jenny Walsh, Australian wildlife documentarians whose 1999 film about the giant pandas of China produced a viral video clip they’re now turning into a feature film.

The $1.3 million co-production, set to start shooting in China in October with Zhejiang Roc Pictures of Hangzhou, will follow an Australian zoologist whose zoo faces financial difficulties she thinks she might solve if she travels to China to save the black and white fuzzy sneezer whose (real life) video clip still gets more than 150,000 hits per day. […]

Riffing on the Chinese penchant for going way, way back when telling one’s family story, Hammond decided to employ the techniques used in Forrest Gump or Woody Allen’s Zelig before that to place the ancestors of the Sneezing Baby Panda in crucial roles throughout history.

“One panda’s a terracotta warrior. Another’s on the Long March,” said Hammond, who with former Nine Network news producer Walsh dug through archival footage they’ll incorporate into the film. “You know the famous photo of Nixon sitting with Mao? Using visual effects, we’ll replace the woman interpreter sitting between them with a panda.”

    Die Filmidee ist natürlich völliger Schwachsinn. Offenbar hat da jemand das falsche Zeug geraucht.
