OK - I enjoyed the re-make of "Ocean's Eleven," and decided to spoof out on the theatrical trailer for the movie. With all the campy throw-away lines going between Clooney, Pitt, et al, something -had- to be done.
Historical Notes: There -really- was a Saito Hajime and he -really- did join the Shinsengumi. 'Tatara' is the traditional method of smelting iron ore into 'tamahagane,' nuggets of raw steels used in forging the Japanese sword. [OK, I had to spell -something- out of "Traffic."]
Technical Notes: Many thanks to John M. for helping me along with Virtual Dub!
