The 80’s launched a new kind of hero into the world of American cinema, and since the US is a huge exporter of culture, the same hero type found its way to a lot of the world in a pretty prominent way.
This is the era of the ultra-man. The living embodiment of machismo. Muscles on muscles, absolute tanks of brute force wielding the biggest guns and the broadest shoulders. They didn’t trade in the clever or the calculated, but in sheer mass and audacity.
And now, weirdly enough, they’ve collided with the world of memes. Let’s look at some and try to come up with a few bad action tag lines.
15. Oh, booger
Nobody nose the troubles I’ve seen.
14. What a dump
What are you, chicken?
13. That uncle
Be careful, he’s armed and dangerous.
12. The real me
Sounds like you’ve got a lot of drive.
11. The wipe
And so we meet wet again.
10. The fugitive
Go on friend, sock it to me.
I’d say data ’bout does it.
8. The law
Sounds like you’re busted.
7. The bois
You’re in for a grand slam, friendo.
6. Mr. Clean
Don’t worry, we’ll be dropping by soon.
5. Tiny dancer
Well well well, would you look who just waltzed in.
4. The dog
Come taste my fists of furry.
3. The best part of waking up
Check out my latest stimulant package.
2. Around the block
Can’t believe I pulled that off.
1. In the garden
Get ready for some flower power.
Ok, I don’t think those were tag lines so much as puns but I tried and that’s all that matters.
