There's something epic about watching a fish out of water, though it kind of ruins the mood when Mike Patton stands up from the piano and it keeps playing. Turning pop cultural fish-out-of-water into sick art, Harshness
Cleverly playing on everything from sci-fi to hip-hop, Harshness appropriates iconic pop culture figures and paints them into places no one would've thought to put them (so wait, does that mean Jennifer Grey is in the corner, or out of it?). Popular themes include
Star Wars: The galaxy far, far away gets a boatload of prints, from a headphone'd Yoda intently manning a DJ booth, to the bandana-wearing, gun-toting "G-Wok", to a rapping Wookie called "Chewpac", who totally knifed a homeless jawa to death in Above The Outer Rim.
X-Men: The mutant heroes get placed in decidedly un-heroic workaday gigs, including the mop-and-bucket-wielding Janitor Cyclops, the (actually still kind of heroic) pole-grinding Stripper Storm, and an overalls-donning Plumber Wolverine fixing a toilet, the kind of menial work that can drive a man berserker
Wu-Tang: The clan gets a frat-tastic college experience, with Raekwon impressively ripping a keg stand, Method Man engaged in an intense beer pong battle, and a 40oz being beer-bonged by ODB, who was disappointed to discover that all the Wesleyan chicks who claimed to like it raw were actually just vegans
Further mashups include a Boyz n the Hood-styled Frodo, and the bloody-mouthed vampire treatment given to '80s movie standouts like Stay Puft, Chunk, and Gizmo, who should always be kept out of water to avoid an epic disaster.
