Funny.
13 August 2013 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I don't know how to rate this short. I was not even sure what I had just watched at the end. But one thing is sure: that was pretty funny. I chuckled all along.

You may recognise straight away the character and the filming style from the excellent movie District 9. It's also reminiscent of Borat in a way, only with a different, self-derision kind of humor. Basically, a cameraman follows Wikus through Hollywood, in search of successful compatriot Charlize Theron. Apart from the main actor, it's impossible to say if the rest of the cast is aware of what's going on or not.

As it turns out, it's a sketch for some South African music award show.

If you have 4 minutes to spare, watch it.
