The Fantasy Epic Reinterpreted as Eighties Rock

Somebody drew my attention to this the other day, and … well, it’s just too good not to post. For a certain definition of good.

There is a plot buried somewhere under all the rapid takes. I can’t for the life of me tell you what it is, but I saw a chainmail bikini, and that’s good enough for me. Who doesn’t love chainmail bikinis?

I mean besides the SFWA, which fires people for chainmail bikinis.

I’ve never before heard of this Chris Dane Owens, but with his huge eyes and his bleached blond hair, he looks like a hero out of a shoujo manga. Apparently, there may be a film based on his music video at some point. Let us hope it’s coherent.

For some reason, I’m reminded of this:

    The chain mail bikini in “Light Speed” gets a pass because its wearer (almost) had a proper suit of armor. The chain mail bikini on the SFWA bulletin, however, is clearly a case of “sexy armor”: armor designed solely to appeal to the prurient interest for profit. If you want to see armor that a serious female fighter would wear, then look no further than St. Joan of Arc.

    • I don’t think there has ever been a chainmail bikini that was a proper suit of armor.
