Blaine Kinney, an aspiring young filmmaker, approaches an eccentric and extremely wealthy businessman, Fentworth Pennyweight III, for help in financing his first film. To his surprise, Mr. Pennyweight agrees to fund the entire movie with one small stipulation: Blaine must wear a ridiculously large and effeminate pair of earrings for exactly one year. Desperate for money, he agrees to the deal. Written by <efram@newbornpix.com>

More annoying than funny...
6 August 2003 | by (Edina, MN) – See all my reviews

This short by the PGL winners has it's funny moments, but the main joke it watching someone have to do something that makes him uncomfortable. This has been done a million times and I don't care for watching people in uncomfortable situations. Oh well. The other short "They came to attack us" is much better. 5/10
