As Seen In: Blades of Glory (2007)
The first time you watch Blades of Glory, the "Iron Lotus" scene really comes out of nowhere. Up until then, Will Ferrell's figure skating comedy is just that, a typically silly look at an immature man-child (much like Ron Burgundy and Ricky Bobby) who finally grows up.
Hoping to learn how to pull off the infamous, highly dangerous maneuver known as the Iron Lotus, Chazz Michael Michaels (Ferrell) and his new partner, Jimmy MacElroy (Jon Heder), watch a video showing the only time anyone has ever tried to move. The footage takes place in North Korea and quickly becomes a horror show: Mistiming her jump leads to the female skater's decapitation as her male counterpart's skate blade swings upward.
Thanks to Ferrell's presence, the jolting image work. Just not, you know, if it would've happened to him and not some anonymous CGI person.
