You probably haven't heard of "Black Dynamite" (we didn't until today) but the film is a send up of 70's blaxploitation films like "Shaft," "Superfly," or "Foxy Brown." The trailer even references by name some of them too, but the film that gets visually referenced throughout the trailer alone is "Dolemite." Made on a low budget, "Dolemite" is a perfect example of a "so bad its good" movie. The film's unintentional hilarity makes it ripe for parody, which is what 'Dynamite' has done to "Dolemite." The trailer uses the same sort of rhyming scheme used in both the trailer for "Dolemite" and its over the top sequel, "The Human Tornado." At least one of the phrases from the 'Dynamite' trailer is taken verbatim from the "Dolemite" trailer.
Apparently, "Black Dynamite" originally started out as just another viral trailer, because there are two different red band trailers both with portions of the same dialogue but spoken by different actors. Also, in the original trailer, frames are taken directly from the trailers for "Dolemite" and 'Tornado.'
Due to the recent passing of Rudy Ray Moore, "Dolemite," it seems in poor taste not to put the word out about the film that influenced the filmmakers so much.
Could it be that the filmmakers don't want to reveal how easy it was to come up with material? We say this because basically all of the work to make the film look "bad" was done for them in 1975 with "Dolemite."
WARNING: Female mammaries are seen in all of these trailers. You have been warned.
