Pee-wee Herman Impersonating Ultron Is The Best Thing You'll See All Day
We've seen the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer and it's perfect. We've seen the inevitable Avengers 2 trailer/Pinocchio mash-up and that too was pretty perfect. Next up is something a little less expected but no less amazing. A Pee-wee Herman dub of the Avengers 2 trailer, recorded by none-other than Paul Reubens...
Paul Reubens Pee-Wee version of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer does a fine job of taking pretty much all of the creepiness and edge out of James Spader's sinister Ultron. Ruben also adds a classic Pee-wee giggle to the Hulk and throws in a la-la-la at the end to really give the trailer that Pee-wee charm. Ok, he doesn't dub the whole trailer. But Pee-wee Herman doesn't have to dub the whole trailer, Dottie. He lived it!
As Paul Reubens and Jimmy Fallon discussed leading up to the clip, Fallon has actually done these Pee-wee trailers before, impersonating Reubens classic character for trailers like World War Z...
And The Dark Knight Rises...
Jimmy Fallon does a great Pee-wee Herman impersonation, but there's nothing like the real thing. Comedian Paul Reubens is well known for his portrayal of the child-like Pee-wee Herman, who was at the center of a number of Reubens' screen (and stage) projects, including the beloved kids show Pee-Wee's Playhouse, which is now available on Blu-ray. Reubens non-Pee-wee roles include voicing the part of Pavel in Tron: Uprising on TV, Bat-Mite for Batman: The Brave and the Bold and guest spots on The Blacklist, Star-Wars Rebels and Adventure Time, among numerous other appearances and voice work that go a bit further back. On the big screen, Reuben's non-Pee-wee claims to fame include playing Penguin's father in Batman Returns and the vampire Amilyn in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie ("You ruined my new jacket! Kill him a lot!")
Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to arrive in theaters on May 1, 2015. If you haven't watched the spectacular trailer enough times already, check it out after the jump! And watch the great Pinocchio/Avengers 2 trailer mash-up Here.
