The famous MGM intro has been updated, and Leo is now just a bunch of 0s and 1s in a file somewhere...

looks like it was done right and pretty good.

the music could be better though. not bold or dynamic enough.

:D

You guys are definitely the life of the party around here.

In the words of Bachman Turner Overdrive "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet"!  Or, if you're into Christina Aguilera, "Keeps Gettin' Better"!

Granted, some might think that's up for debate.😉

Since Leo was last filmed in the 1950s, that photo is a fake, as the room is too modern for that.   There's not enough room for a film camera on the other side of that fake screen.  MGM lions were always filmed standing, and they didn't film with the MGM banner in front of the lion.

That's a photo of a lion getting a CAT scan...

Reminds me of my last colonoscopy.

(...minus the tail there, of course...they also couldn't get me to roar...just wince and grumble a bit)

Since the thread is about Leo, and not last colonoscopies, I'll spare folks the story of the time I had to sign the disclaimer form that any interior scraping of cells would be classified as a "minor surgical operation", for those with objections, and I responded (with an absolute straight face) "Whew, so, then, it wouldn't be like major operating-room surgery, where I'd have to come into the hospital for a week, and have half my colon taken out?...And then I'd be left with just a semi-colon?"

(ahem)  😌

So, anyway, HOW ABOUT THEM LOGOS??

Did the scan reveal a meal  not so kosher?
