Wassup, Superfriends? - VIDEO

by Richard Keller, posted Jul 31st 2006 10:18AM

The Superfriends, watching a game, drinking a budBack in the early 2000's (wow, I can't believe I just wrote that!), Budwiser ran an extremely successful advertising campaign for its Budwiser beer that most simply called 'Wassup?'. It featured a bunch of guys sitting around, watching a game and drinking their beers, while calling their friends. The extent of their phone conversations was "Wassup?" over and over in a humorous manner.

As its popularity grew so did the Internet parodies, which included South Park, Teletubbies and Super Friends. The Super Friends spot actually became quite a World Wide Web phenomenon, long before the creation of YouTube. However, once the advertising campaign ended, those parodies also faded away and were simply forgotten.

That is, until today, when I found several copies of the Super Friends Wassup parody on ... you guessed it ... YouTube. I watched it again and still think it's hilarious. Take a look for yourself after the jump and let me know what you think.

Now if someone could find the Superfriend's commercial from Cartoon Network where they all go to the movies and need to go get snacks....

'A TWENTY!'

The best sendups of the Superfriends were the Power Puff Girls commercial featuring the SF (and Wonder Woman talking about being "developed") and the Harvey Birdman ep featuring Apache Chief. Check them out if you can find them.

During the height of its popularity I found a downloadable version, to me... it's still pretty funny, especially the Wonder Woman and Robin parts.
