Taiwanese company’s illustration of Justin Bieber’s syphilis rumour is creepily hilarious
Thanks to language barriers and cultural divides, it is sometimes difficult to understand news coming from another country. That’s why Taiwanese newspaper Apple Daily breaks it down for its readers with CGI re-enactments of real-life events. First, the paper gained international recognition for its animation of Tiger Woods spanking his mistress, then for a very accurate explanation of the Conan/Leno late-night war (complete with Conan transforming into the Incredible Hulk). Now they’ve set their sights on the mystery kid who keeps popping up on their Twitter trends list: Justin Bieber.
The video tips the scale of ridiculousness when it shows the various Justin Bieber rumours: crashing through his car’s windshield, getting syphilis, and looking at his mom in a copy of MILF magazine (that one’s a real head-scartcher). But our favourite is the bit that addresses the Internet prank about sending Bieber to North Korea: we get to see a dancing Kim Jong-il right before the Jonas Brothers beat the living crap out of Bieber himself.
Is it just us, or is everything funnier when it looks like it’s playing out on the Sims?
