Jeff Bridges caused a social media storm by dropping a short teaser video on Twitter. Could he actually be reprising the role of “The Dude”? Everybody's favorite White Russian-slurping, perpetually stoned bowler may be just the man we need to help us through these troubled times.
Anytime I'm channel surfing and come across the Coen brothers’ cult classic 1998 comedy, The Big Lebowski, I have to watch. The rug that really tied the room together, Walter yelling at Donny, the battle against the nihilists, I would love to see The Dude ride again.
The video is accompanied by the message, “Can’t be living in the past, man. Stay tuned.” The video then ends with the date 2.3.19, which just happens to be The Super Bowl. So this is either going to be a very expensive ad for White Russians or could they release a movie trailer that day? Stay tuned...
