I am American bad…

A current teaser trailer for the new G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra movie features the song American Badass by Kid Rock - at least on TV. However, the spot cuts off the syllable ‘ass’ and this is how the clip ends. SO, a movie about American heroes that I believe the producers hope will make all Americans stand up and shout things like “America is the greatest country on earth!” ends with these words: I am American Bad. I think this qualifies as an Epic Fail [link to my favorite].

Below is a clip of the spot - except they must not have Internet rights for the song because they aren’t using it at all in this video:

Here is a clip of a movie I think of everytime I see the G.I. Joe commercials:
