You can find just about anything on the Internet these days. While there may be a large amount of trash lurking on websites, if you dig hard enough, you can find a few gems as well. I recently came across one of these gems on a website called heavy.com. It is an animated short entitled “Superficial Friends vs. Plastic Surgery Zombies.”
The three and a half minute cartoon is action packed and delivers at every turn. The Superficial Friends consist of five of the most loathed, bratty celebrities tormenting Americans today: Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie, and the Olsen twins.
The cartoon starts with the five “super heroes” leaving their lair, which is modeled after the Hall of Justice found in the 1970’s “Super Friends” cartoons that combined most of the major DC Comics superheroes in one show. As they leave their pad, each star is introduced. Highlighting these introductions are scenes of Paris Hilton humping the leg of a criminal like a dog in heat and Nicole Richie sticking her finger down her throat to vomit on a police officer. The narrator informs the viewer that our super heroes are “dedicated to selfishness and social ignorance.”
In this particular adventure, the Superficial Friends have traveled to Honduras to get labia widening procedures at a covert plastic surgery lab. The controversial procedure is illegal in America, forcing the Superficial Friends to seek the assistance of the Cat Lady and her black market plastic surgery facility.
It is not long before our heroes discover that the Cat Lady has stolen labias from poor Hondurans for use in these controversial procedures. As they begin to raise a protest, the Cat Lady brings out her army of plastic surgery zombies to attack the Superficial Friends.
Nicole Richie borrows Paris Hilton’s “call daddy for anything phone” and recruits her father for assistance. In what is most likely the highlight of the entire short, Lionel Richie appears out of nowhere and begins singing “All Night Long.” The plastic surgery zombies clearly are not big fans of his music, and one of them rips Lionel Richie’s arms off, causing blood to spurt into the air in projectile fashion.
The Cat Lady then uses her BOTOX ray to freeze the Superficial Friends in their tracks while she steals their Bulemia-o-copter to transport her plastic surgery zombies to Beverly Hills. They are on a mission to destroy all of the plastic surgeons in the area. As the Bulemia-o-copter takes off, it dumps a large pile of vomit on our heroes. Nicole Richie informs the rest of the group that the vomit is left over from her most recent binge — 27 Tombstone pizzas and some Carl’s Junior.
Somehow, the Superficial Friends break free of their vomitous BOTOX shackles and follow the Cat Lady back to Beverly Hills for the final showdown against her plastic surgery zombies. Nicole Richie assaults them with her massive shoe collection, but that does not slow them down as they continue to mercilessly pummel the city’s plastic surgeons. Paris Hilton summons a horde of ex-boyfriends to do the job, but they are no match for the zombies and their BOTOX rays.
Things are starting to look bleak for the Superficial Friends. It looks as if the Cat Lady may succeed in ridding Beverly Hills of plastic surgeons. In a last-ditch effort, the Olsen twins combine their superpowers and transform into Bob Saget, who picks up the Cat Lady’s BOTOX ray and uses it to destroy her. Plastic surgery has been saved.
The creativity of this piece is undeniable. It is highly entertaining from start to finish. In my opinion, any video where a zombie rips off Lionel Richie’s arms to get him to stop singing is worth a watch. And of course, the video included the gratuitous Bob Saget scene that is crucial for the success of anything making fun of the Olsen twins.
