Before there was Megamind, there was Lord Insidious

From the description:

“This commercial for online storage site came out in 2000, and featured a parody of a supervillain, Lord Insidious, which I created. This spot was even featured at Cannes that year. Now Dreamworks is coming out with their movie, Megamind, about a giant brained supervillain in a black outfit with a high collar and cape. Coincidence? Yeah, probably. Let my lesson be one to you all: don’t wait a decade before working on the film treatment for your own good idea.”

For you film buffs, this spot was shot by Bennett Miller, who a few years later got some love from the Academy when he directed Philip Seymour Hoffman in “Capote.”

A little blast from my past. Thank you Bonapa!
