Super Cafe: Swingers Tribute

Episode 6 is a special episode.  Paying tribute to the film that inspired the entire vibe of Super Cafe, this scene is paying homage to HISHEdotcom‘s life long favorite film, Swingers.  People have confused Super Cafe to be inspired by Seinfeld, which perhaps it could be to some degree, but the real heart of it was always Swingers.

Lego Grayskull SR Geek Picks: 80s Fantasy Movies, Making of Batman & Robin, The Jokers & More

David Frank (AKA Fraslund) has created an outstanding LEGO rendition of that classic toy, Castle Grayskull, from the 80s television show, Masters of the Universe. David’s version is drop-dead gorgeous. He was able to perfectly capture the iconic gate and drawbridge, as well as the lesser known details around the sides and rear. David definitely has the power!

  1. Why do find the abc fam promo weird, thats how all their promos are, same voice over and all.

    Can you explain the “entire” hobbit poster?

    • It’s the entire book in small print on one poster.

  2. Sorry but, you’re missing a Joker actor. And the answer is, they were all perfect in the roll.

    • Mark Hamill easily!

      • I’d say Heath Ledger followed closely by Mark Hamill.

        • I’d say Mark Hamill, then Ledger, then DiMaggio

      • “What a photo op! The city councilman and his wacky pal!” I love Hamill’s Joker!!! 😀

        • @ Ken J

          You & me both,lol. GRRRR, don’t touch me old man. Hehe, I don’t know where you’ve been,lol.

  3. ABC Family was a little late for April Fool’s this year…

  4. The ABC promo was real, that was definitely the same voice over for all their other promos. But guys, seriously, this one is pretty laughably bad.

    And the Army of Darkness fan art was “groovy” 😉

  5. Hey, the only cool VW…

  6. Jack Nicholson’s Joker!

  7. Superhero cafe tribute to Swingers was awesome!!

  8. Mark Hamill’s Joker=#1

    Jack Nicolson/Heath Ledger’s Jokers= Tied.

    #1 Batman= Kevin Conroy
    #2 Batman= Michael Keaton
    #3 Batman= Christian Bale
