VIDEO: The Thing as Retold Through Song by a Dog Channeling Frank Sinatra

The Joel Edgerton-Mary Elizabeth Winstead prequel The Thing hits theaters this Friday, so if you need a refresher on the events of the John Carpenter 1982 original -- which takes place three days after the new film -- what better way to relive it than through the Cliff's Notes version, as sung in the style of Frank Sinatra from the point of view of the dog? Just go with it. Watch Jon and Al's John Carpenter's The Thing: The Musical, then stick around for more Buzz Break.

  • Web Reporter says:

    The best explanation of the monster is given by the main character, MacReady (Kurt Russell), during the famous blood testing scene. He says, "Maybe every part of you bastards [referring to his crew, of which any could be the monster in human form] is a whole. Every piece of you is self-sufficient, an animal unto itself. When a man bleeds it's just tissue. But blood from one of you Things won't obey. It's a newly formed individual with a built-in desire to protect its own life. When attacked, your blood will try and survive -- and crawl away from a hot needle say." He then proceeds to test blood samples of the crew with a hot wire. BRILLIANT!
