Forget TMNT, Meet the Teenage Average Normal Turtles

Posted By on Tue, Apr 16, 2013 at 3:25 PM


The Marvel Comics character Daredevil was created when a young boy pushed a blind man out of the path of a speeding truck, and was struck in the eyes by radioactive waste that spilled off of the truck and gave him superpowers.

That was, coincidentally, the same incident that created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a comic that was partially started as a parody of Daredevil. After striking the young Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil, the waste went into a sewer grate and, viola, a new comic franchise.

But let's be honest, the whole thing seemed a bit fishy, right? Turtles? That do ninjutsu? And eat pizza?

The time is right for a more honest assessment of turtles as cultural icons.

Enter Teenage Average Normal Turtles, a new parody video from The Pet Collective YouTube channel. Watch as they paw at their glass prison; see them covered in lettuce; marvel at their dexterity as they tumble all turtle-like.

Spoiler alert: the consistent super-power among all turtles is that they're slow.

Or as the song says: "Turtles in a glass cage, normal turtles!"

Check it out below.
