I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
GO AWF NICKI!!!!!!!!!

I know, I know. Ads can do crazy things, what with their over-the-top budgets, star power, and flexible format. And sharing them just plays into their whole reason for being. But this ad for Madden ’15 is just nuts, and even though I don’t care for Madden, or sports video games, or Kevin Hart, or Dave Franco, this video has so many absurd, funny, over-the-top turns, that I can’t help myself.
