The NSFW End Credits of "Superbad"

One of the nice little bonus touches that some films include are outtakes as the credits roll, or fancy graphics, or a special scene telling everyone to leave the theater (a la "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"), but "Superbad" has taken it a step further.

The surprise summer hit comedy apparently displays a montage of drawings featuring penises during its end credits, a trend that some other films are being noted for. The trend being creative end credits, not penis montages.

Zack Snyder's adaptation of cartoonist Frank Miller's "300" used Miller-style drawings, spinning and upending each one into a different credit. Pixar's Brad Bird-directed animated feature "Ratatouille" got all arty with 2-D drawings, while "Superbad" offers a cornucopia of drawing after drawing of penises in a variety of settings. Michael Davis' "Shoot 'Em Up," which New Line Cinema releases September 7, also gets fancy with its end credits, which have been described as "James Bond on acid."

"I think it's the equivalent of finishing a show and coming back and doing another number for an encore," Bird says.

Says Davis: "You want people to walk away with a high from the movie because you want them to go tell their friends to see this. They also show filmmakers really cared about the movie by giving it this sort of going-away present of these cared-for credits." - Hollywood Reporter

Above we have a crappy video of the end credits of Superbad, but, it gives you the basic idea of what's happening. If anyone has a better version, feel free to lead us into the right direction. But needless to say, pirating images of schweens can be, uh, hard.
