7 Great James Bond Gun Barrel Parodies
From Friday The 13th to SpongeBob SquarePants...

submit to reddit

In Casino Royale, Bond’s iconic gun barrel shot was replaced by a black-and-white cold open. In Quantum Of Solace, it was saved for the very end. In Skyfall, well, you’ll have to find out for yourself. But to whet your appetites, here are seven different pastiches of Maurice Binder’s iconic piece of title design, the best of a multitude of riffs on one of the most famous shots in cinema history...

Friday The 13th

First seen: Friday The 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986)
Person shot: Jason Voorhees

The name’s Voorhees. Jason Voorhees. Where Bond has a Walther PPK, Jason has a machete; instead of a licence to kill, he has some seriously messed up mummy issues and an unstoppable desire to poke his victims with a large slice of metal. One of the many occasions Jason jumped (and probably killed) the shark, Friday The 13th Part VI: Jason Lives began the series’ turning point, making Master Voorhees a zombie serial killer with supernatural powers rather than some sort of mortal superhuman. As part of that process, he occasionally breaks the fourth wall and takes large chunks of mick out of himself and other franchises. Exhibit A: Jason’s extra bloody gun barrel sequence (in the film, it takes place inside an eye), in which Jimmy Bond gets it in the neck (and other artery-filled body parts).

1 Jason X
That's not actually the sequence from Friday VI in the clip - it's somebody's YouTube remix. (Although the actual clip from the film isn't on YouTube, so fair enough). In the film, it zooms in on someone's eye, and then Jason does that walk across the pupil. So the outside of the circle is an eyeball, not a gun barrel. More
