I’ve yet to see Mike Judge‘s Extract, so I can’t vouch for the film itself, but this new promo is great enough for me to already salute Judge for a job well done. Judge—-the creator and voice(s) of the cornerstone-entertainment-piece-to-my-early-teenage-years Beavis & Butthead—-is going back to his Office Space world with Extract, and that alone is promising. But if his work in Extract motivated him to the point of resurrecting Beaver and Butthole (if you get that reference, you’re right here with me) then there’s no reason why I shouldn’t make a point to see Extract this Friday, opening day. The guy (a perennial ‘filmmaking sleeper’ within Hollywood) deserves it, frankly.
Notice how Beavis’s voice is a bit off, a clear sign of rusty disconnect. Nothing game-losing, just unavoidably noticeable. “Master-bateman.”
Back in my humble, scatter-brained Blogger days, I wrote down some on-the-spot nostalgia concerning Beavis & Butthead….. It seems only right to bring that back here: Barone’s World: “Diarrhea, Cha Cha Cha”
Once I see Extract, I’ll follow this up with some concrete thoughts. For now, though, live with this Beavis & Butthead promo for the film; it’s everything you’d hope for, plus quite Spoiler-filled (so watch with caution in that regard). I could’ve watched at least ten more minutes of this. (Promo after the jump):
