Machinima is at it again with another live-action movie trailer based on an old-school, semi-abstract videogame concept. They run with the dichotomy between Donkey Kong's beastly manner and his stately neck tie as far as anyone could hope for. In Mr. Kong, Donkey Kong is the physical manifestation of man vs nature; our animal instincts constantly at odds with our capacity for logic and judgement. It's obvious, right? He's got a tie on! He's got to know that kidnapping a woman, running away with her, and throwing barrels at anyone that dare try to stop him is totally irrational behavior. If you wear a tie, you must know better than that, and yet, there is our Mr. Kong, doing just that very thing.
I guess they just pushed him too far.
I'm at a loss as to what Diddy represents here though. Blue collar immigrants coming in to save the emotionally unglued white collar American business world from its own insanity? The spirit of youthful innocence injecting a much needed dose of humanity into the power mad void of an anti-soul that is the overly ambitious office worker?
