In Vietnam, they had an elaborate premiere for the opening of Kong: Skull Island, with fire dancers and a large mock-up of King Kong.

Pro-tip: Try not to let your fire dancers get too close to your giant flammable King Kong facade.

They didn’t follow that guideline.

(Edited to add: There were originally two videos here, but the first video removed from YouTube, so I deleted that. Skip to about 3:45 into this one to see things start to go wrong.)

Did you ever say to yourself “You know what King Kong needs? Worse special effects, slapstick humor, stock footage, and singing!”

High points:

  • A Kong whose fingers seem incapable of flexing.
  • Soldiers that don’t know how to hold rifles facing off against savage tribesmen who don’t know how to hold spears.
  • Kong tearing apart a city that’s obviously made of cardboard boxes.
  • A Bangladeshi Fay Wray who Kong must have kept extremely well-fed during her captivity.
  • Digital fire that has to be seen to not be believed.
  • In short, it makes every previous version of King Kong (including the Dino De Laurentiis version) look great by comparison…
