"David Flair-style" Titantrons
« on: December 30, 2010, 07:24:05 AM »
Has anyone else ever heard of this? Apparently it was a meme on IGN's pro wrestling boards. The formula:

1. Use a generic piece of stock music
2. Put together clips of a wrestler's greatest fails (or most hilarious moments. Your mileage may vary)
3. Intersperse clips of someone looking disappoint
4. ?
5. PROFIT!

Here's the original. Keep in mind this was David Flair's ACTUAL Titantron: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyGQtP8gHbc

And here's some of the better ones made by various folks.

-sigh-  Further proof that 'internet humor' contains no actual humor.

At least Santino and Bryan were kinda funny.  The rest, lame.

jericho's facial expressions were great. daniel bryan's was the only one that was actually funny....but only kinda.

also, pretty sure that wasn't flair's 'ACTUAL' titantron.

The fact that David never had a WWE 'tron is a bit of a giveaway. Also, the appearance of the words "Fat" and "Dissappointment" being in there.

Actually, yes, David Flair had an official 'tron.

It's not the original, but it does have the ONLY 3 things to happen in his tron:

His name
Shake back and forth slowly
Father looks disappointed

Seriously.  That's it.  On a constant loop.  The first 8 seconds over and over and over and over.  I wish I was making it up.

The Daniel Bryant one was mildly amusing because it actually told his story.

The stock music is a rip off of ZZ-Top's "Got me under pressure"

(No, it's not exactly the same... but damn...) (and wow... Eliminator was a fantastic album )
