Check out this awesome Birdman toy commercial


Feb 25
There's not really much to say other than this is a neat little ditty promoting Birdman's victory lap through some theaters after taking home the Best Picture Oscar. But it's just really, really neat. If you haven't yet, you should watch Big Birdman too.  "Smells like balls." read

The worst thing about this is that it's only a parody
