Be Kind Rewind! For some reason, movie websites starring Jack Black are always fun (website for Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny anyone?). So it’s no suprise that the official movie website for Be Kind Rewind is not only fun, but a bit weird! When you enter the website, after a few seconds, a screen pops up saying “the internet is being erased” and the entire screen begins to dissolve as the system shuts down and the internet is “erased”. When it’s done, a white screen with what looks like a real Windows button appears, asking if you want to rebuild the internet. Click on the button, and you’ll rebuild the internet in a sweded version! The “internet sweded” version is just a messed up home-made version of the original…as you’ll see when Google Sweded comes up! What’s the first place to visit at this site? The Swede Yourself feature!
Swede yourself lets you star in your favorite classic movie or video! Sweding yourself is a four step process. Select from a Horror, Comedy, Romance, Drama, or Action movie, then a list of videos will pop up within that genre for you to choose from (for example, horror has Jeepers Creepers, Nightmare on Elm Street, Critters, and Leatherface!) upload a photo, make any adjustments, and you’re done! You can then save it as a JPEG!
For those still confused and looking for a guide to sweding, Swedeing is when you take something you like, and mix it with something else you like, and then add yourself into it. You remake it using whatever you have. The movie website idea is for you to not only be able to swede yourself, but you can also swede internet pages. A simple upload button lets you upload your sweded website. When you’re done playing around, check out the trailer section – there are no less than 8 to check out! They’re set up on a sweded youtube channel. Don’t forget to pick up your aim icon, wallpaper, and screensaver.
