Storyline

Alison buys a used car without consulting any men, including her boyfriend Bob and their friend Warren. On the dash is a switch marked "Gravity." Bob flips the switch, and all gravity, at least in L.A., disappears. They begin to float. Warren thinks about his girlfriend Laura who's over at the mall and may be in trouble. He grabs a fire extinguisher that's floating by and uses it to power himself toward Laura who has floated into the path of a jet airplane carrying plutonium. Can Warren save Laura? And what about the plutonium? Yipes! Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

This Guy is Falling is a wonderfully quirky short from the studio responsible for the opening credits of Juno
13 January 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Shadowplay Studios, the company responsible for the opening titles of the current hit Juno, is also responsible for this quirky computer animated short This Guy Is Falling, directed by Gareth Smith and Michael Horowitz. As a teenage couple in the front of a used car is arguing about the driver's (a girl) wisdom in her vehicle purchase, the boy next to her accidentally pushes a lever that suddenly causes the car (and the other vehicles and people around them) to go floating up in the air weightless. Among the people was another teenage passenger in the back seat who decides to leave them and find his girlfriend who's in danger of being weighted toward the propeller of a jet plane. I won't reveal anything else except that things get wonderfully weird and exciting after that with a twist that extends to a scene after the credits end. I found this on AtomFilms as linked from Cartoon Brew and recommended by Jerry Beck. Well worth seeing.
