So Elijah Wood and RZA walk into a bar…no this isn’t the setup to a joke; it’s what took place over the weekend at the 2010 Fantastic Fest. For those who don’t know, Fantastic Fest is basically the prelude to Comic Con, serving as the gathering of film geeks from across the world, as they have the opportunity to be in the presence of several film stars and directors who make their way to Austin, Texas’ Alamo Drafthouse each year.
One drunken night, Bobby Digital stumbled upon Elijah Wood, Spanish filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo, director Eugenio Mira, Michael Lerman (Quantum of Solace) and Fantastic Fest Founder Tim League for an epic karaoke session. The group staggered on stage to perform what can only be described as the quintessential rendition of the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling.” While the hobbit sips his Tecate, Nacho kicks it up a notch by downing a bottle of sake before selecting the song for the song. Nacho is the f*cking hilarious mess, who rips his shirt off and begins crowd-surfing before dry-humping the also topless League. All the while RZA’s cracking up and probably questioning the sexual orientation of both men. From the looks of it, Frodo must have stumbled upon some of that infamous pipe weed from the Shire because he certainly enjoyed this spectacle. Something tells me that RZA’s been involved in far more outrageous karaoke sessions considering that he’s penned such gems as “Lab Drunk” and “Drink, Smoke + F*ck.”
For those in the Austin area, Fantastic Fest is going on until the 30th. You can check out their website for details on premiers, tickets, and events.
