I figured I should start a thread like this to discuss what everyone thinks some of the cards are parodys of.
I'll start it off by listing a few Uppers.
Tyler (R) is obviously Brad Pitt.
Level 2 = Paul Maclean from "A River Runs Through It."
Level 3 = Detective David Mills from "Se7en"
Level 4 = Mickey O'Neil from "Snatch"
Level 5 = Tyler (R) Durden, from "Fight Club"
Zatman (U) is obviously Patrick Bateman from "American Psycho"
Many people speculate that he's Superman instead, but they ever reference the movie in his bio, so he HAS to be Bateman.
Also, the names are quite similar.
Janine (U) is Nicole Ritchie
Her bio just gives it away, "Adopted daughter of a celebrity singer from the ‘80s"
The Level 2 art also references The Simple Life
Sydney (U) is Paris Hilton
Again, the bio says it all, "As the fabulously rich heiress of a respectable family, Sydney (U) has decided to do what it takes to get her kicks, even if it means dragging the family name down with her. She’s the ultimate party girl on the city's most wild scene and is famous for her lack of control when it comes to men and alcohol. Even some of the Uppers would prefer not to be associated with her."
Her dog is also a give-away
Elliot, I believe, is Emeril Lagasse
He looks kind of like Emeril in his Level 1 art
He's a chef
That's all I got there lol
Colin (C) is Simon (C) Cowell.
The tight shirt
The thumbs down
The bio, "With his new show “Clint City Idol” he wants to uncover new pop stars."
That's all I've got for Uppers
"I made extensive additions to this character parody data. Check it out on my slugfest event (shown in my profile). Specifically in the polski comment section. Enjoy! Be enlightened, and enlighten me as well by contributing data im missing or in need of correction"
Some of those character references in there are... Odd. I think Archibald is of more a reference to Archibald Henderson.
Also, Allison is a reference to Allison Reaser? Who's that? Just some random, non famous track athlete? So, who was the creeper that made that suggestion to her, lol...
I'd say Allison is more a reference to Allison Stokke (but even then, the character's description doesn't connect to her anyway...)
Yes some are odd I agree. They are a merely a compilation of data I collected from various chimers. None of this data is yet verified. It IS still an early DRAFT
So I need people like you, Zincomega to point out the bogus ones so a more accurate answer can be found. Thanks and for the record, none of the ones you pointed out were found by me, lol
I thought Valentina was Jill at first too... But now I believe she's a parody of both
Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine (The artwork) AND Nick Fury (His bio) of Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D.
Please keep your "Parody data" coming everyone. Let's get er done
