The Major is disgusted. Not at the video, just that the troops are so easily taken in by a viral video ploy.



That hysterical (or horrifying) version of "Scarface" making the rounds -- with grade school kids playing all the parts and spewing the f-word..."fudge" -- yeah, it's not an actual school play.

Instead, it's the work of director
Marc Klasfeld and Rockhard Films -- who did the videos for Lady Gaga's "Pokerface" and Adam Lambert's "For Your Entertainment." It was produced in L.A. within the last few weeks and the audience members were a mix of cast family members, colleagues and friends.

Hmm, they must have JUST wrote that article... the day after I posted this topic.

That was the work of an actual director!?! Hard to believe.

That still doesn't make this any better. These kids are too young to be memorizing scarface, a movie about drugs and killing.

I wonder what this SICK director will make kids do next?

That is, if this really is what TMZ says it is... I don't see any proof of their claims yet.

Nobody was taken in by viral anything, there just isn't any information around to figure it out... till now.

By the way... good research. I wish they would have wrote that article before I made this topic...

I couldn't believe it was real. And after checking the YouTube page and other links provided by other members, I'm 99% sure it is NOT a school play. Not a real one anyway. Viral marketing, A hoax, shamless publicity for it's director? who cares... A topic for another thread; where is the line drawn for what parts child actors can or cannot play?
Lolita comes to mind, there are more, though I'm no movie buff.
Plenty horror movies and psychological thrillers with kids in them though, is that right?
I dunno peeps, i dunno...

I sooo wish I could watch the video.
My cpu at work prevents me from the such.

My opinion is that someone is trying get attention by sparking outrage.





....it's obviously working.
I feel bad for the kids. They know not what they are doing. Just following orders.

As for L'il Tony and his co-stars, they were selected through a casting agent known for finding child actor look-alikes for adult stars.The fake scar was a nice touch.


this is from the "owners" page to see where the sick crap came from.
20 years ago, the directors and anyone else in the room would have been put against the wall.

One side note, any IDIOT that says that this is "cool", it doesnt hurt kids, ect are either:

1. Genetically stupid.
2. Trolling to piss off people.

Of what good is it to expose childrent to this? My kids would have had an ass dusting for the crap these kids were saying!

People really make me sick nowadays. The laissez-faire liberals REALLY DO!

BTW,

When did all of the "TRASH" start glorifying Scarface? Its like he's a hero! Oh yeah. He's an immigrant. That makes it all better.

Pulled this out of the comments from the YouTube user's account that published this. Take it for what it's worth.

This would explain the non-reaction from the audience. They're a bunch of entertainment whores who want their kids to be famous. So, you hire some idot to produce this crap and prostitute it on YT where it will be picked up and go viral. Instant success.

Edit: someonr already posted the quote. But still, this is just disgusting. As disgusting as when a little kid (under 8) is in a movie and curses. Everyone laughs because is soooo cute how they say a--hole or s--t. I think it's wrong, wrong, wrong. And what does that make you for laughing at this crap.

Uhhh..... What is wrong with these parents?

When I read the headline I was expecting to see some High School Kids in a play like the kid in "Rushmore". This is ridiculous. I especially enjoyed seeing those proud parents in the front row with their video cameras running in high gear. Gotta get your preschooler dressed like a slut on film for grandma and grandpa to see.

Anyone know if this school is Pacino's Alma mater



Ok just read the previous post and that explains everything. When society begins to crumble is will begin in the greater Hollywood area.

I don't really see a problem with it and you people are overreacting.

First of all: It's a stageplay, so i don't see a difference to say Romeo and Juliet. Would you people overract on that too, because the main characters kill themself in the end? Or would you say that is great because it's Shakespeare and cultural important, while Scarface is just a #ty movie? (Yeah, i don't like it)

Second: Kids see action movies all the time. Just go to websites like Retrojunk were People in their 20s, 30s and even 40s tell stories of how they saw horror- and actionmovies as kids and guess what? They're perfectly fine.
It's not like that these kids become the terrorists of tomorrow just because they made a stageplay with drug references and swear words (Kids use swear words all the time and don't even know what they mean, but that's nothing new, they do that for centuries)

Third: I bet all those kids played at least some video games, so they already saw killing and swear words, violence and all the stuff.
Thing is: Kids see this stuff very different than overprotective political correct adults.
I remember playing games like Doom (and i was just 9 years old) and later Quake, Dukem Nukem 3D and everything else. But guess what? I never had problems with the law, i don't own guns, i'm not violent, though i do use a lot of swear words with shocks people (mostly because they think women don't do that) but besides that i'm just a normal person, even though i played basically every first person shooter and even saw some of the most sickest movies known to mankind (guinea pig, men behind the sun...just to name some) and even some ultraviolent wrestling because i was curious.

People who think that all those things have a bad influence and turn innocent people into terrorists, need a reality check. Just because i for example like the "No Russian" in Modern Warfare 2, doesn't mean i would do that in reality and so, those kids who play Scarface don't become mob bosses in the future.

I can't get my head around how, in this day and age when the slightest mention of anything gun-related in schools can get a student suspended, a play like this was allowed to happen. I'm all for free speech, but I can't imagine this didn't cause some kind of outrage. Also, yes, it is kindof wrong for children this young to be acting out killing and swearing. This play would be more suitable for a college group rather than these small children.

Ahh, nevermind. It all makes sense now.

After seeing all the controversy surrounding those school children who were singing a song about President Obama, I couldn't help but think this Scarface school play could be equally controversial.


Although I do feel this re-enactment of scenes from Scarface is very over-the top for these children, I don't think it compares it at all to the kids singing a song about Obama or the positive accomplishments they feel they can achieve from his example.

Not remotely.

Those children singing about the first Black President during Black History month, or those step-dancers (not Hitler Youth army
) stating what they feel they can accomplish from the example he set is not the same as a third grader playing a drug dealing murderer in a school play.

I mean I would rather them sing about how they believe in the positive things they can accomplish (being the next doctor, lawyer, architect or president) rather than being the next Scarface.

Where is the harm there?

So yeah...this play is a terrible idea in my opinion, but people complain when kids are saying positive things about themselves if there is a political agenda so what the hell do we really want?

For once the ha'la'tha is appreciative of the Majors narrative. The ha'la'tha should perhaps adopt such a style, and then the ha'la'tha can too gain a strange demeanour aboot him!


Naww, being drunk it enough for the ha'la'tha..


Oh but I mean, Well done - it's not a school at all.. That much was just obvious from the start imo. Either, I thought, it is a local funny done by a group of freaks, as they are want, or something like what you said.

"Fudge you," it screamed from the youtube tops.. And then shot itself in the face and died, and ATS screamed with aghast!

The ha'la'tha bids you adieu.

Can we chill a little please. Just, please, chill a little... just a little!

Look, kids are not the little angels you think they are. Children are mean, powerhungry beasts. All this beating around the bush and portaying them as these little dolls that can't do anything bad is only hurting them. It's making them feel bad that they obviously can't live up to your expectations, and not talk to you about it because you obviously wouldn't understand. I know this because I remember my days in school and how incredibly horrible some of my friends, and I, were to some, and some to me. Just stop overprotecting them and teach them what the world really is, why the world is bad or good and how they can teach themselfs to make the world a better place. By overprotecting your kids from all "bad" things in this world your only making things worse, in more ways then you know.

Maybe, just maybe, the kids in the "play" WANTED to do the show, or saw the movie when you had a baby-sitter or something and liked it for what it is, a tradgedy. Thats what it is. Scarface, in my opinion, is not glorifying drug use or murder, quite the contrary.

Oh! The horror kids are learning about drugs and guns and what happens when things go too far... Is that really bad? I don't think so. Teach them now about ALL the sides of drug-use and guns before someone else can teach them, they are going to find out one day, like it or not. Better to take control of it now then pushing the responsibility aside, if you ask me...

Things like this does not lead to school shootings or drug abuse. It is your bad parenting and huge blinders about your own kid who probably teased, beat and abused that one kid who just happends to draw a gun one day to get back at that jock ***hole that leads to the school shooting. Your kid made that kid draw the gun, take responsability for it and stop passing the blame of to any institution, media or school.

Please bare with my bad english, it's not my primary language. Now! Let the bashing begin, you're still ignorant.

I wholeheartedly disagree. Children are innocent until molded guilty. Kids adapt to what they see everyone around them do. They're great little learners that way. Sure, there are some primal instincts that we are born with, but the majority of their cognitive learning is done by watching the rest of us.

They might think NOTHING of what they are doing, but then again they might remember more than you know. The fact is that a group of people are teaching them about subject matter that is entirely inappropriate for their age group. Regardless of whether this was in a school setting, it is just wrong. Is this being done so that the kids are made to look good, or the director. Who is really to benefit from this viral video? To me, this is nothing more than child exploitation so some ADULT can bask in the glory of his ART. Hell, the more controversial it is, the more ARTISTIC it is...right?

I guess what bothers me about some of these responses is that those screaming about being too politically correct haven't indicated where they would draw the line. Talking about murder, drugs and using dialogue that we all know how it should sound is o.k.? What next....simulated sex acts? Oh, I see, that would be child pornography and you would have an issue with it, correct?

I think before we argue about some harmless stageplay, we should first ban the real monster who brainwashes little children: Religion.
Telling children dumb stories about a guy who declared himself the son of god, than got beaten by a bunch of roman thugs and nailed to a cross and left there to die is more inappropriate then anything else and all those stupid stories about hell and satan (scares children into nightmares) and who killed who and who raped who and sins and all the other sick stuff which was certainly invented by some really sick individuals is way more harmful than a little stageplay like that.

Same # like telling children that the storch brings babies and then everyone wonders, why children get pregnant. But hey, we have to save our little harmless innocent angels, we can tell them anything....whoa, little jimmy just impregnated little clara because nobody told them what sex is because it's inappropriate for them and so they find it out for themselves and everything goes to # (which happens at the moment puberty kicks in)

Well it looks like the kids had fun. Same stuff you see on a playground. Kids playing GI Joe or Masters of the Univse (Yeah, i'm older, forgive me that i don't know what kids play these days on the playground) is the same thing and nobody EVER had anything against it, that a kid plays He-Man and kills beasts with a sword and another played the evil Skeletor (i know they were out on the "fresh" air so everythings fine)
