At first glance, Mad Max: Fury Road and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt don’t seem to have much in common. One is an explosive thriller set in a dusty dystopian hellscape; the other is a colorful sitcom about a naive young woman trying to make it in the big city. But both are about women who’ve been abducted, and both are about what happens once those women break free.
In Kimmy’s case, that involved becoming the subject of her own “Bed Intruder“-style viral video. But Furiosa and the wives didn’t get one, because the only musician employed in that horrible society is too busy rocking a combination flamethrower/guitar for the bad guys.
Happily, one YouTuber has now decided to correct that grave injustice. Watch the Mad Max Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt mashup you didn’t know you needed, after the jump.
Albert Lopez posted the Mad Max Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt mashup, titled “Unbreakable Imperator Furiosa.” Warning: You will have this song stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Actually, if you’ve seen the show, you probably have it stuck in your head already, just from seeing the title. Sorry about that.
Anyway, here we go:
In an accompanying comment, Lopez explains what inspired his Mad Max Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt mashup:
All the haters who are pissed off that there’s a strong female lead in the new Mad Max film need to realize something… FEMALES ARE STRONG AS HELL!!!!!! Behold… the UNBREAKABLE FURIOSA!!!!
Who knew Mad Max: Fury Road and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt had so much in common? Immortan Joe is nothing if not the consummate example of a “weird old white dude.” Though he’s a good deal less charismatic than Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne, as far as we can tell. In all, it’s a pretty fantastic melding of two very different properties with the same inspiring theme: “Females are strong as hell.”Cool Posts From Around the Web:
