Haha: Children See Saw 3D Instead Of Megamind

This is not a porno switcheroo (torture porno switcheroo?), but this is still pretty great. From NME:

Families who took their children to see cartoon film Megamind in a Massachusetts cinema earlier this week are angry after Saw 3D was shown by mistake. A Massachusetts branch of movie chain Showcase Cinemas accidentally showed the film to a group of seven-year-old children celebrating a birthday, reports NBC News.

The children were told to cover their eyes as cinema bosses tried to correct their mistake, but it took several minutes to rectify the problem. The children would have seen images of a man with his foot cut off, as well as a woman being killed by a buzz saw.

Ha! GOTCHA, BABIES! IN YOUR STUPID, SUPERTINY FACE! Admittedly, if I was one of those 7-year-olds, I would have shit my shorts. Even as a full grown (some might say too grown) man, I do not have the stomach for horror movies, and I feel very strongly that James Wan should be on some kind of island prison somewhere. It could be any island prison, really, so long as it is an island and a prison. But as an adult who doesn’t ever have to watch any of the Saw movies ever, AND gets to read about children having their megaminds megabroken, this is hilarious. (Also hilarious: referring to someone as a “cinema boss.”)

Actually, though, this is my favorite part:

A similar mistake was made in 2007, when children were shown The Hills Have Eyes 2 instead of The Last Mimzy in a US cinema. The opening scene of The Hills Have Eyes 2 features a chained naked woman giving birth to a deformed baby.

HAHAHAHA. The Last Mimzy Swticheroo! So good. Pretty sure that movie doesn’t even exist, and is just a thing that is very funny to say. Bartender, a round of virgin barftinis for my young friends here!
