Why Internet Explorer?

    I don’t have concrete proof of this, but I think the dubbed clip came out first and the script writers used that famous line in the movie. I blogged about it here…

    According to IMDB: “Cain Marko’s line “Don’t you know who I am? I’m the Juggernaut, bitch!” was based on a popular Internet fad. Several fans had taken footage from the X-Men cartoon and re-dubbed it with more mature dialogue, including “Juggernaut, bitch”.”

    And Wikiquote: “Much to the fans’ delight, it was referenced in a scene in X3, when Kitty Pryde phases Juggernaut into the floor.”

    Ah, more proof here…

    In one scene, the unstoppable Juggernaut (Vinnie Jones) bashes through wall after wall, until a naive Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) slows him down by sinking him into the floor. The angry mutant declares, “I’m the Juggernaut, bitch!” and then continues on his quest, but the brief line sticks out glaringly in an otherwise vulgarity-free film. “When that line comes up, I’m probably going to start breakdancing, and Randy will scream out the phrase himself,” 21-year-old college student Xavier Nazario said excitedly, thrilled over the prospect of watching Jones utter the line made popular by an Internet spoof Nazario released last February. Using an old “X-Men” cartoon, Nazario and pal Randy Hayes dubbed their voices in, giving birth to the now-famous catchphrase. Hayes, who voiced Juggernaut’s ghetto persona in the top-rated YouTube.com clip, isn’t quite so shocked that Ratner paid tribute to the clip. “Everybody loves the Juggernaut,” he laughed.
