Sweep the Leg March 3, 2008

Posted by davegoblog in Movies, Music, Pop Culture.

Did anyone think that a quote from The Karate Kid would spawn its own song and music video over 20 years later?  “Sweep the Leg” (from the debut album of No More Kings) pays homage to the line at the end of the movie spoken by the cruel sensei of the Cobra Kai dojo.  The video features the entire original male cast members except for the late Pat Morita (aka Mr. Miyagi), and it offers a humorous alternative ending to the movie from the viewpoint of Johnny (the main antagonist).  Enjoy!

This is classic, thanks for sharing. Seeing these guys older is scary, especially the “body bag” dude. Love the Machio cameo (hey, that rhymes!) at the end. 🙂

I didn’t realize that it was the original cast members the first time I watched it, so it was even funnier the second time! Too bad Elizabeth Shue didn’t make an appearance 😉
