Here in the Ninja lair we receive “Official Press Releases” on a regular basis. We got one from Bluewater Productions recently announcing “Mark Zuckerburg: Creator of Facebook” to become animated film. It goes on to state “Hayden 5 Media and Bluewater Productions team up to create the animated film based off the comic book for Mark Zuckerburg: Creator of Facebook.” We’ll get to the turd of an idea that this animated movie is in a second, but first…there was a Mark Zuckerberg comic book?
The Ninja was incredulous so I checked out the Bluewater Productionswebsite to see if this could be true. Well whoa Nelly, not only did it appear to be true Bluewater had also put out comic books on Angelina Jolie, Beyonce, Sarah Palin, the Clintons and…Betty White.
Apparently the good folks at Bluewater have been drinking bongwater because who exactly are these comic books aimed at? The brain dead crew still lapping up the Golden Girl reruns? The dolts watching the Real Housewives of wherever? I guess the more readers of comics the better for all of us right? Right?
O.K., picking up where we left off with the press release something called Hayden 5 Media continues gleefully “When we found out that Bluewater was releasing this comic, we knew we had to get on board,” says Todd Wiseman, President of Hayden 5 Media. “We saw a great opportunity to re-tell the storyof Mark Zuckerburg post Social Network in a brighter, animated form that could be enjoyed and understood by a broader audience.”
Really, Bongwater Productions the comic producers that brought us the amazing stories of Olivia Newton John and Justin Bierber hatch another dipped in shit idea and you say “YES, and I know let’s animate it.” Look I’m pretty sure we all saw the Social Network and I’m not sure this adds anything, in fact I’m not sure it even adds any further dollars to your pocket like your dreaming.
The thing the Ninja can’t figure out is why animate it? Would animating the story of Howard Hughs add anything to it, the nightly locals newscast, basic cables The Iron Chef make? Well maybe that last one would be sort of cool animated. But really isn’t this just another 3D craze gone bad. I still haven’t gotten over the wonderment of Step Up 3 in 3D, have you?
All right fellow Ninjas I’ve said enough, if you really must know more go take part in your medicinal drugs and then go over to their website at www.bluewaterprod.com.
