What happens when Joes and Cobras alike stop being polite and start getting real?

Prepare for the following video, starring a whole slew of notable faces, as all your favorite G.I. Joe characters, for it will show you what the other half of the battle is. Turns out that THE WONDER YEARS, Dostoevsky, painting landscapes, and consuming copious amounts of alcohol is 25% of it, while taking out the trash, pick-pocketing, Three Dog Night, and practicing the clarinet comprises the other 25%.

Check out the laugh out loud video below, which can best be described as FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS meets G.I. JOE meets one of the most awesome things I've ever seen.

    I think that may have been my personal bias coming into play. Cobra has been one of my favorites for a long time and even though I recognize how important the original Rocky is to the whole series, I found the movie itself to be a tad slow and boring. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good movie mind you just a personal preference BTW, Stallone only got paid 30K to do Cop Land.
