Comic-Non Day 2: Summer Blockbuster-Related Media Presentation


I admit I'm curious to see G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, but that's mostly because I enjoy Christopher Eccleston, I think Sienna Miller looks AMAZING as the Baroness, and I love watching ninjas flippy kick each other around. I really don't expect it to be very good, though (but, in the movie's defense, "acceleration suits," though stupid-sounding, aren't any lamer than tanks with glass canopies; so there's that).

However, we here at Comic-Non International are committed to bringing you programming related to at least one geek-interest summer blockbuster, so here's a YouTube compilation of every commercial for the original G.I. Joe comics from Marvel:



The voice acting is terrible, but damned if those songs aren't catchy and more than a little insistent ("Destro is his name! DESTRO IS HIS NAME!!!"), and I think if we're all being honest with ourselves, this is how most of us prefer to remember the Joes.
