The short that leaves the viewer hanging!
19 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

This short is bad, but it is a pure delight when compared to the shorts of the day that were made to sell products. Watch the short "The Selling Wizard", then watch this one and then this one seems amazing by comparison. This one features juvenile delinquents as they terrorize a town and beat up some dude in a car before picking up their buddy. Their buddy's dad just happens to be the guy they beat up. What a moral dilemma!!! From this short we see that children and teens of all eras have been behaving badly and probably always will be. Here they are beating up their buddy's pop, today they are berating people on facebook causing said person to commit suicide. Of course, from that example one thing is clear to see, we are much weaker mentally and emotionally than we were then thanks to political correctness and all the people who put it in people's heads that words hurt worse than bricks and sticks. We are also a society today that will punish a person for beating someone down for running his mouth instead of saying 'they had it coming'. This short has council meetings and such as the town wants to impose a curfew, and of course all the popular kids want to make a point that not all of them are bad, these days it is the popular kids that are bad cause they are the one's with parents that instill within their kids a sense of entitlement. Things change, but there will always be teens misbehaving.
