Cannes ’08: Jack Black unleashes plushie furry ‘Panda’ fury

Posted in Cartoon news, Movie events with tags , , on May 15, 2008 by funofmovie

Only plushophiles busy “yiffing” and “scritching” could have missed Jack Black delivering a low roundhouse kick before a pack of 40-50 burly extras in panda suits at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday.

The not-so-high kicks and sloppy karate chops were delivered during a well-attended press-op to notify the world of the international premiere of “Kung Fu Panda.”

“And now I will teach you kung fu,” Jack told the crowd of assembled paparazzi and video crews.

Black gives voice to the “Kung Fu Panda” hero Po, following in the animated footsteps of Jerry Seinfeld, who last year donned a bee costume to publicize DreamWorks’ “Bee Movie.”

See all the kung fu inaction and White’s resort wear-inspired white pants in the clip below.
And how could we forget? Black also used his day in the sun to spill the beans on “Kung Fu Panda” co-star Angelina Jolie’s growing international brood.
