Bad Lip Reading Returns to Take on ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’
The ‘Twilight‘ films may have reached their (seemingly) definitive conclusion back in 2012 with ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2,’ but the series lives on as a massive piece of modern popular culture. We can’t talk about vampires and werewolves ever again without someone making an Edward or Jacob joke. Supernatural romance is bigger than it has ever been before. And then there’s the fact that the franchise’s success continues to inspire countless imitators.
We only remind you of this because yes, it’s still okay to make fun of the ‘Twilight’ movies in 2014 and the latest hilarious video from the folks at Bad Lip Reading does just that.
Following in the footsteps of their re-dubbings of ‘Twilight’ and ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon,’ the video takes nearly seven minutes of footage from ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ and transforms it into something completely and utterly different. Everyone still stares at each other longingly and you can still feel the soap operatic tension between the Bella, Edward and Jacob, but now they say things “Sun tan! That’s what you need!” and “If I ever become a cannibal, I’m going to a eat a fat fellow.”
Like with their past videos, this isn’t going to appeal to people who don’t have love for absurd wordplay and non-sequitirs, but there’s no denying the craft. Like the others in this series, the dubbing is near perfect and it’s sometimes easy to forget that this isn’t the original audio track. Heck, there are points where this actually feels like an improvement to the film’s screenplay.
