“All Your Base Are Belong To Us” was one of the original “memes” that swept the Internet a little over a decade ago. It started sometime around 1998. An Internet craze (“going viral”) took off with great fanfare when people started “Photoshopping” pictures and/or taking pictures of altered items inscribed with “All Your Base Are Belong To Us”. A few new songs were created and new videos emerged from the zest of the followers.
Where did the idea come from? Well, there was an arcade game made in Japan by Toaplan that had a short intro video to the arcade game “Zero Wing”. The original Japanese script was poorly translated into English. The game never made it big, however, the broken English became infamous. The intro video has been re-made or re-imagined dozens of times to entertain the masses, and the words “All your Base Are Belong To Us” and the remnants of the saying are still found in the current English lexicon.
This film, “All Your Base: Last of Last” is a three-dimensional animated parody comedy science fiction steampunk mock trailer super short film that claims to be the final remake of “All Your Base Are Belong To Us”.
