Bad sci-fi movie fun: Seahawks save Seattle

While the players are no thespian threats to Robert DeNiro or Denzel Washington, they do handle cornball well enough that a parody video of Japanese sci-fi of the 1960s is worth four minutes of your day.

Not content to let Russell Wilson have all the bye-week amusement (here’s the Seahawks quarterback and girlfriend Ciara sharing their island getaway enjoyment), several Seahawks joined with local video production house Shep Films to make a cornball send-up of Japanese science-fiction movies of the 1960s.

Posted Sunday on the team website, the video is as bad as it is good as it is short — all essential elements of parody. Bobby Wagner, Michael Bennett, K.J. Wright, Jon Ryan and  Steven Hauschka had the non-sense to participate as saviors of the city after poor recycling habits — the surest sign of a decadent, wanton culture — produce radioactivity that spawns monsters.

As actors, they are good football players — although Bennett displaying his sack dance as a superpower is certain to draw a fine from the NFL. They are no cinematic match for the giant slug and giant fish, who in an earlier time could have been played by Jim Harbaugh and Colin Kaepernick.

Spoiler alert: There is no fourth-quarter comeback for the creatures (where was that when Andy Dalton and Cam Newton attacked?). But we do lose Seattle City Light, which may not be all bad.

    Wilson’s pics are very strange. Is this his first date? He has someone with the two of them on their getaway? Taking pics they pose for? Weird. Very weird.
