I know that ‘You dumb kids’ is about the silly things you thought about movies as a child. However I’d like to introduce a twist to this concept. This tale features a man in his thirties who might be the dumbest kid ever. Let me explain.
I was talking to a friend about my favourite films. The conversation went like this:
Me: “Do you like Rocky 4?”
Him: “Is that the one where he fights the robot?”
Me: “What the fuck?”
Him: “Yeah he fights a big Russian robot.”
Me: “Why do you think he’s a robot?”
Him: “There’s a bit in the film where someone says ‘he’s a machine!’ and he’s always connected up to wires and shit.”
There you have it, a grown man who thinks that Ivan Drago was an android due to one throwaway line that’s obviously not supposed to be taken literally. I think I broke his heart a little when I explained this to him. Sometimes it’s nice to have a little magic and whimsical imagination in your life—even if you’re a 31 year old man idiot.
