What better way to ring in the new Karate Kid than by spending some time with the original, Ralph Macchio? Daniel LaRusso’s crane kick was pretty badass, but overall, Daniel-san was as amiable as they come, just like Macchio himself. Just in time for the remake to hit theaters, Macchio teamed up with the folks over at Funny or Die to make a movie of his own. Well, it’s just a joke trailer, but if a feature length version ever hits theaters, I’m there.
In Wax On, F*ck Off, Macchio is joined by his friends, family, manager, Molly Ringwald and Kevin Connolly to examine a nice guy that finished last. In order to get back to his glory days, they suggest Macchio rubs some dirt on sweetheart demeanor and pull a Robert Downey Jr. or Hugh Grant and get into some serious trouble. The problem is, Macchio is so damn kind, drugs, alcoholism, bad attitudes and prostitutes can’t even hide his massive sweet side.
The whole film thing may not be working, but Macchio can certainly have a career in spoofing himself. This is hilarious!
