Happy Island parodies The Last Airbender as The First Windbreaker
The last time Happy Island did a great parody items set (which is still available!) was for the TV series "Lost", which they called "Found". But while that was a cute homage, this latest poke by the game at "The Last Airbender" is worthy of guffaws.
By collecting all four elemental temples of Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire -- no Heart though, cause Captain Planet, this ain't -- you can unlock The First Windbreaker! While we can't tell what Aang... er, I mean the Windbreaker looks like, he does sport a glowy blue tattoo on top of a bald head and spins a glider staff.
The temples have been renamed as the Fiery, Frozen, Geo, and Breezy shrines. Each one costs 45 Facebook Credits ($4.50 USD), and collecting them all would set you back about $18 USD. Is "The Last Windbreaker" worth $18 USD? Hell, a better question would be if M. Night Shyamalan's "The Last Airbender" was worth paying for at all (especially the retro-fitted 3D)?
As a fan of The Last Airbender TV series, I find this whole set hilarious, but then again, I've yet to see the movie, which has lots of fans feeling sensitive right now. There's very vocal outrage over Shyamalan's mishandling of the source material, on top of the pre-production casting controversy over racial under-representation. Rumor has it that Shyamalan's daughter (who's a fan of the series and the director's reason for taking on the project) had panned the film, "If I was older than my daddy, I would ground him for a very long time."
Maybe Crowdstar thought some casual Facebook fun can help lighten the mood.
