Futuramas Billy West reads Trump quotes as Zapp Brannigan

first_imgZAPP presents…Famous Trump Quotations! pic.twitter.com/cFq1rQ4veY— Billy West (@TheBillyWest) August 11, 2016 Voice actor Billy West has played a great many characters over the years, but his work on Futurama is probably what he’s best known for these days. He did the voices of Fry, Dr. Farnsworth, Dr. Zoidberg, and the man sometimes known as the velour fog, Captain Zapp Brannigan.West is now reprising his role as Brannigan on Twitter to poke fun at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who has a tendency to say very bizarre Brannigan-esque things.Each tweet includes a video, which is really just a still image of Brannigan from the TV show. West has added his voice to each video reading a statement Trump has made in the past. Each video includes the source of the quote as well. When you see and hear Zapp Brannigan saying this stuff, they really sound like something the character would say. That’s the joke — Trump’s statements sound like they could have come from Zapp Brannigan.Here are all the the tweets West has posted so far.Zapp presents…Famous Quotations from Donald J Trump#MakeAmericaBrannigan pic.twitter.com/kbaV8rIkwK— Billy West (@TheBillyWest) August 11, 2016 ZAPP presents … Famous Trump Quotes! #WednesdayWisdom #ManWithAPlan pic.twitter.com/dpKJOVkTmA— Billy West (@TheBillyWest) August 10, 2016 ZAPP presents… Famous Trump Quotations! pic.twitter.com/jGzmsKM9cF— Billy West (@TheBillyWest) August 10, 2016 ZAPP presents…Famous Trump Quotations!#FamousPresidentalQuotes #WednesdayWisdom #ManWithAPlan pic.twitter.com/ztvTa9QVRU— Billy West (@TheBillyWest) August 10, 2016You can follow along on West’s account. He’s been posting them since yesterday, and he’s still at it. He’s also tagging all the relevant tweets with #MakeAmericaBrannigan. This is obviously a play on Trump’s “Make America Great Again” motto. Regardless of your political leanings, you have to admit this is pretty hilarious.last_img read more

GEEK PICK OF THE DAY Landos Most Iconic Item

first_imgStay on target While Solo has opened to some mixed reviews a bright spot for sure has been Donald Glover’s version of Lando Calrissian. I say version because he’s basically doing a Billy Dee Williams impersonation but it works solely due to how dialed he is. One thing Donald and Lando do very well is fashion.Cloud City’s finest resident is quite the celestial trendsetter. His iconic claim to fame lies is the simple chicness of his cape. It’s essentially an extension of him. Cool, hip, and definitely catches the eye.It made sense when it came time for ThinkGeek to put together a collection for the Solo movie that Lando would be involved. And of course, they chose the capes too. The black crepe material on the outside pairs perfectly with the sating lining. You’ll notice it’s detailed to match Lando’s skinning tie scarf from the film. And the faux leather collar stays perfectly up, but I preferred to fold it down which doesn’t change the look.There is something fetching about how well this thing goes with anything in your wardrobe. I’m playing with the idea of styling it with a black skirt and red belt to give the full Lando look. And boy does it really billow went you strut! I mean, who wouldn’t completely sashay when you’re embodying the awesomeness of the original Millennium Falcon Captain.The only downside was the material is it’s a bit heavy, but that could be because I’m on the petite side. I doubt a vertically advanced person would notice the literal weight on their shoulders. That being said, it did keep me very warm in our chilly office.It might be considered steep at $69.99 (I know, I see it too) but it’s absolutely quality. And honestly, you can wear it will anything. A few weeks ago I wore it around with a sleeveless babydoll dress and got lots of compliments. It looks like the new run of these will be navy and come in sizes, which is helpful if you’re a taller or shorter person.This is an awesome gift for anyone who wants to party like the most perfect pansexual space boy.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
