Just a minute ago on HBO
, hit comedian Dane Cook
gave Mortal Kombat
a bit of free publicity. In front of millions tonight during his first ever HBO special, Dane Cook: Vicious Circle
, Dane referenced Mortal Kombat
during one of his skits. The quote happens towards the end of the show, during his one night stands skit. The quote is definitely for adults only but is fairly entertaining and involves the daze your character is in before a Fatality
happens. Because of it's adult nature, I wont post it here. It's better to see in video form anyways.
He also used this reference when I saw a pre-HBO show testing of his act when he came to Chicago, IL on April 13, 2006. A few days later he filmed the HBO special in Boston, MA and he obviously kept the refrerence in because of the positive feedback from the audience.
This is not surprising for most Dane Cook
fans, because he is a huge video gamer. Dane has previously made references to both Super Mario Brothers
in his skits, but this is the first reference to Mortal Kombat
. I recommend all of you you catch the follow up airings of the show to catch the bit, and I'm sure HBO will have it available for purchase on DVD by the holiday season.
