Believe it or not, my life is not solely about Matrix sunglasses; I am also always on the lookout for funny videos related to The Matrix to share with you – my loyal readers. Well, I’ve got a really funny one to share with you today that mashes the red pill/blue pill scene with the main character from the 1998 comedy, The Big Lebowski.
The Big Lebowski (TBL) was written and directed by the Coen brothers and stars Jeff Bridges as “The Dude,” a stereotypical LA slacker. In a nutshell, in TBL, The Dude experiences a case of mistaken identity when he is mistaken for a millionaire with the same name. When the millionaire’s wife is kidnapped, The Dude is hired to deliver the ransom necessary to ensure her release. But of course, the rescue plot goes anything but smooth!
Even if you’ve never seen The Big Lebowski, you’ll still get a kick out of this video. But be forewarned – there is some “R-rated” language in the video so please watch with caution. And if you think this video is funny, I encourage you to watch the actual movie as it’s quite a hoot!
The nearly 3-minute video starts off with The Dude being escorted into Morpheus’ creepy office so he can learn about The Matrix. Morpheus then immediately goes into his spiel about how things are not what they seem, and how The Matrix is nothing more than “the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.” Of course, the spiel solicits nothing more than confused looks and comments from The Dude. In fact, his first real response is, “can I do a J?”
In the end, Morpheus presents both pills, a segment which is punctuated by The Dude’s reflection in his Morpheus sunglasses! The Dude ultimately takes the red one, and the video ends with The Dude flying across the night sky in a state of happy bliss.
Yes, it’s silly but I personally found the video to be pretty hilarious. So, if you’ve got 3 minutes to kill, I suggest you watch the video right now. You won’t be sorry. And if you have any strong opinions about it, both positive and negative, please drop a comment below and let me know what you think!
