Bootleg fan film producer Adi Shankar (The Punisher: Dirty Laundry) just released a bootleg of The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Shankar made a cool video to pitch/promote the bootleg and posted it on YouTube. In it, Shankar explains that Power Rangers was one of his favorite shows as a kid.
But the most amusing part of the video is when Shankar starts talking about The Lord of the Rings actor Orlando Bloom. He would have been Shankar’s first pick for the Power Rangers bootleg (James Van Der Beek from Dawson’s Creek stars), but Shankar jokes that director Joseph Kahn said “anyone who sucker punches a teenager [Justin Bieber] and totally misses is disqualified in perpetuity from the action/adventure genre.” Kahn didn’t really say that, but Shankar is having fun with it. He added the hashtag, #Orlando4Pink, to the video which of course is being used repeatedly on Twitter, as we write.
