Avatar: The Making of the Bootleg: It’s Funny Because it’s True

So James Cameron’s 3-D Fern Gully remake hasn’t just revolutionized film technology — as depicted by the sketch comedy troupe Free Love Forum, it’s also inspiring a whole new generation of bootleggers.

The irony, of course, is that a quick Google search confirms that torrents for Avatar bootlegs are out in full force — and not just versions captured by sneaky theatergoers with handheld cameras, but what appear to be high-quality DVD rips. Even so, Avatar has been doing just fine at the box office — because as one bootlegger from the short puts it, you do want to watch it “on a reasonably-sized screen.”
