It has been announced that one of my favorite childhood shows is finally returning (technically again) to TV, Celebrity Deathmatch!
It seems like just yesterday that I was sitting on the living room floor eating my second bowl of Apple Jacks, watching Ricky Martin bite off Marilyn Manson‘s hand just to have it come to life inside of the Latin heartthrob and burst through his skull.
Oh yeah, those were the good ol’ days.
There truly is no greater form of art than shitty claymation and when you pair that off with over-the-top celebrities ripping each other’s faces off, you get a recipe for television gold.
And can you imagine how much fun it would be to watch it now with a whole new batch of current celebrities?
I mean, who doesn’t want to see Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea try to pop each other’s fake asses or Madonna impale Drake with her grandma tongue… oh wait that actually just happened.
The possibilities are endless and I just hope it lasts longer that the 2005 revival that only stuck around for less than two years.
Oh and for the children out there reading Hot Off The Mess without a parent’s permission (I can see you, we can all see you) here’s a taste of what perfection looked like in the late 90s.
