Iron Man 3 Gets Low Budget Thai Tribute

A team of intrepid Thai actors have recreated the Iron Man 3 trailer using fireworks, body paint and toy helicopters.

FEDFE “sweded” the film, creating a lo-fi tribute to a big-budget movie–re-adapting the comic book adaptation with amateur actors. Check out the urban dictionary definition of sweded:

The summarized recreation of popular pop-culture films using limited budgets and a camcorder. The process is called sweding. Upon completion the film has been Sweded. Origins: In the Michel Gondry film BE KIND REWIND, the character Jerry accidentally erases the videotapes at Mos Def’s rental store, and the pair remake all the movies themselves. These versions become popular with customers, who are told they take longer to arrive and cost more because they come from Sweden. Hence, the films are referred to as ‘Sweded’.
