The horrors start at 4:30.

Couch jumping and Scientology proselytizing¬†were just warning signs for worse things to come. In this Annie Awards acceptance speech for super-awesomeness in animation, things suddenly get not-awesome for director Brad Bird (The Incredibles, The Iron Giant). First, he retires from animation, then we see Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg holding him hostage, and– wait, Simon Pegg isn’t crazy. Oh, this is just a goofaround.

It’ll be interesting to see what the animation genius has in store for us with the live action Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol this September. The title sounds like a poorly-translated anime, and with producer J.J. Abrams, director Brad Bird and comedian Simon Pegg on board, this project could be a wonderful geek tornado. Just stay away from Tom Cruise’s thetan cleansing machine, Mr. Bird. Unless you want to spend all your Ratatouille money on repairing the roof of the Celebrity Center. (/Film via¬†Vulture)
