What if you didn’t change anything about the original Incredibles, but just recut the whole thing to seem like the slow-burn kink of the first Fifty Shades of Grey movie? On the one hand, you might assume you’d be watching the 2018 comedy movie The Book Club in which Mary Steenburgen plays the wife Craig T. Nelson and rekindles their romance after reading the infamous BDSM novel by E.L. James. But, The Book Club is a real movie, whereas “The Incredibles but Its 50 Shades of Grey” is just a very clever, and possibly disturbing YouTube video. Here’s the deal.
Over the weekend, Logan Himango published the video on YouTube and the most interesting thing about it is that at first blush, it’s actually pretty innocent. And that’s because, by just using scenes from the first Incredibles film, it’s possible to suggest a narrative that is totally kinky and not family friendly at all. Innocuous lines from Frozone, like “what if we actually did the things our wives think we’re doing” suddenly take on new meaning when accompanied by that ominous and slowed-down version of Beyonce’s “Crazy Right Now.” Does slowing down popular songs just make everything kinkier? This mash-up video seems to think the answer is yes.
Best of all, you don’t have to feel guilty about watching this video. It’s just a joke and there’s nothing explicit in it. It’s just a bunch of scenes from a cartoon everyone loves set to a very popular song that everyone also loves.
This is fine. Don’t feel bad. You’re a totally normal person for watching this.
