The Tetrix

Artist's Note:

I want to play quadra-pong! 4-ball ping pong?! YEAH!

Writer's Note:

Originally this joke started out as a riff on not wanting to live in a world that could allow a Tetris Movie to exist, but quickly evolved from there into its current form. 

I do recommend checking out an interview in the Guardian with one of the producers of the Tetris Movie (link here). The producer, Larry Kasanoff, sounds completely bonkers. Here's his explanation of why he needed to make not just one, but three, Tetris movies:

The story we conceived is so big,” said Kasanoff. “This isn’t us splitting the last one of our eight movies in two to wring blood out of the stone. It’s just a big story.”  

Did this guy even play Tetris before signing on to this movie? A part of me hopes that I'm totally wrong and they somehow create a fantastic film. The rest of me is left wondering whether the economics of Hollywood is a more unanswerable question than what came before the Big Bang.
