Ivan Drago (Russian: Иван Драго) is a fictional character that appeared as Rocky Balboa's rival in the 1985 film Rocky IV. He is portrayed by Dolph Lundgren. The character and his catchphrases have gone on to inspire multiple mentions in popular culture like Clubber Lang (Rocky III), including in the Family Guy episodes "Brian Goes Back to College" and "Something, Something, Something, Dark Side", the Chuck episodes "Chuck Versus the Final Exam" and "Chuck Versus the Anniversary", film Disaster Movie, as well as the name of Michigan heavy metal band, If He Dies He Dies.
So I have been working on other projects, would anyone be interested if this was on a larger print, something for a man cave. I am not sure the rights on this, because it is an interpretation from art I have seen... maybe I can only share little stuff. And this is lovely Yvonne Strahovski for no real good reason, except she is hot and she was on "NBC's CHUCK"... then "DEXTER" and "I, FRANKENSTEIN" soon!
I don't think I have that much wall space in my man-cave. Unless you could do a large one in retro guitars. Not that my man-cave isn't filled with real ones...ReplyDelete
that film just shows how Americans like to spin things up and use propaganda everywhere. I was always shocked how they show Russian Ivan training in high tech facilities with tones of people working with him and super modern equipment, while Rocky trains in poor conditions. In reality, it would always, always, always, be the other way around.ReplyDelete
It will have to go into my mental wall-space, for that is the only place I have with room enough! I am in lust, ah, love with Yvonne Strahovski -- looking forward to I, FRANKENSTEIN. :-)ReplyDelete
Woo-Hoo, back! That's it!ReplyDelete
Oh man love Rocky, I just watched 3 a few days ago. but Drago yes. "He's not human. He is like a piece of iron." And now the music is in my head...ReplyDelete
I don't know if it's legal, but it's very cool Jeremy.ReplyDelete
I might show interest in I, FRANKENSTEIN just for her.ReplyDelete
OH! IT'S SO ON!!!ReplyDelete
Time to bore you with some trivia. Did you know that the scene in that video was filmed at the PNE aka Pacific National Exhibition grounds at a place called the Agrodome in Vancouver, Canada.
All that and a bag of zombie chips!
Oh...by the way....ReplyDelete
Dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge!
