Check Out This Hilarious Short Created Out of Extra Footage from 'The Lego Movie'

The Lego Movie  hits home video this week – and there’s no better way to prepare for that momentous occasion than by watching this priceless trailer for a fake movie titled History Cops, created from some unused extra footage. Will Forte reprises his role as Abraham Lincoln, while codirector Phil Lord (we think) voices Michelangelo.


The short, which features Abraham Lincoln and Michelangelo as an odd-couple cop duo, is done in a faux grindhouse style that’s instantly recognizable to anyone who grew up watching '70s action and exploitation films. Filled with bad dubbing, hilarious one-liners, and pretty much every cop-film cliché you can think of, History Cops is damn near sublime in its awesomeness.

Check out the clip above and tell us what you think. We’re disappointed that the Lego Movie folks aren’t actually making this film. We’d pay good money to watch Lincoln and Michelangelo bust heads, that’s for sure.
