The Hilarious 4th String Jagers Of Pacific Rim
As noted in our review of Pacific Rim last week, there were some awesome 90's cartoon-style names in Guillermo del Toro's tale of giant destruction. The Shatterdome sounds like a Mighty Max toy, Stacker Pentecost sounds like one of the four horseman of the apocalypse and Hannibal Chau must've been made up by Ron Perlman. But thanks to Warner Bros 'Jager Designer' website and some rather creative fans, the names of film's star characters now look normal, and not nearly as hilarious.
A tumblr has now been dedicated to these '4th Sting Jagers' that never made the final cut. Uh-Oh Spaghettio from Italy, Macho Man Randy Savage from the USA and even Obamacare have all been put forward by fans as potential Jager names. If only the Kaiju were Right-Wing Conservatives, that last name could've had a real impact.
The names vary from national stereotypes like the Canadian 'Excuse Me I'm So Sorry' to the straight up WTF, such as TwerkBot 6000 or Nnnnnnyyeeeaaaaoooo.
