Storyline

Once upon a time there was a war between earth and the planet Zog. The two vast space fleets took off to do battle but, at the point of contact in deep space, the earth crews were smelling their girlfriend's underpants while the Zog's were distracted watching porn # and so they passed one another. 30 years later the Zog have invaded earth unnoticed. One man, Dwight Hokum, is at an all-night wine tasting when he sees the Zog removing their heads. He sets out to warn the world and kill those he sees who are Zogs # however the world brands him a killer and doesn't believe him. When Dwight finds that even his President is a Zog he has no option but to strike out on his own to save the world. Written by Bob the Moo

Let Down By Near The Knuckle Humour
19 October 2005 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

ZOG is an acronym for the ultra right wing theory that all the governments in the world are being manipulated by a Jewish conspiracy . ZOG itself stands for Zionist Occupation Government so when the aliens in this animated short were from the planet Zog the name stuck in my mind , and when the first humans to be taken over by the Zog aliens were members of the Klu Klux Klan I fell out of my seat laughing . This must be surely a reference to conspiracy theorists following their own despicable racist oddball agenda I thought , how very witty .

For the most part INTOLERANCE 2 THE INVASION is a very witty animated short film that follows the same basic premise of INVASION OF THE PUPPET MASTERS and QUATERMASS 2 of aliens infiltrating the human race , or more specifically centres of authority like the police and the government and it's left to everyman hero Dwight Hokum to save humanity from the Zog invasion force

This would have been a very enjoyable animated short if it wasn't for the point that Bob has mentioned - The humour spoils this short . I mentioned the reference to ZOG but after seeing this I ended up thinking that this type of biting satire must surely be coincidental since the humour is very unsophisticated , schoolboyish and near the knuckle . In fact I would go further than say the pathetic attempts at humour not only spoils the story but ruins it . There's nothing worse than someone thinking they're funny when they're just pathetic
