‘Animal House’ Goes Jihad: Should National Lampoon Make ’72 Virgins’?

June 19th, 2007 10:06 AM

For a little fun on a Tuesday morning, the folks over at National Lampoon need your help.

They are considering making a feature length film that is basically a modern version of their successful hit from the ’70s “Animal House” with a terrorist tilt.

However, they want the public's opinion as to whether or not they should make this film, and have created an online poll to assist them with their decision. 

Lampoon’s website describes the premise of the comedy (video link available after the break due to the somewhat crude and vulgar content, h/t Charles at LGF):

Two idiot college students unwittingly join an Al Qaeda cell in order to get the 72 virgins promised to terrorists when they die. From the makers of Animal House, Van Wilder, and the Vacation movies.

Those interested can view the preview available here, and vote here.

Vote early, vote often!  

Post facto question: Regardless of the voting, would the folks at Lampoon dare making this film given the volatile subject matter? Just imagine the outcry from Islamic groups like CAIR. Would they risk such negative publicity? After all, this is not a population that has presented itself as being tolerant of jokes directed at it, or have you forgotten the violence in Europe subsequent to the publishing of a few comic strips?
