Funniest!
28 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this short at Fantastic Fest, and me and a friend of mine could not stop laughing. And did not until the end of the next short, which was a bit rude I suppose, but we couldn't help it. The concept reminded me of the Family Guy system of joke, in which you beat it to death (literally) until it's funny again...only in this, they go further than anything I've ever seen with that concept, and it just keeps getting funnier as they come up crazier scenarios that would obviously have to take place over the course of a 10 year murder.

If you are anywhere and this is playing. You need to make it a priority.

I need a copy of it!
