The concept here is that Jigsaw (a tiny killer doll best known for his elaborate murders in the Saw movies) gets a job in an office, but yet continues to overload his pranks, albeit in the setting of a corporate office. The film only gets 3 minutes of this, but it uses it really well to provide plenty of laughs. The absurdity of the situation is very well played out due to the performances from all involved. The voicework of Jigsaw is good, and timed well with the physical actions of the doll to produce some funny moments. The reactions from the office staff are what sell it though - they are tired of him but yet too polite and corporate to do much about it. This sets the office environment well, because it also then creates the feeling of Jigsaw being a bit trapped in this bland setting too.
In this way the comedy owes a bit of a debt to the Terry Tate: Office Linebacker series of films, in the way it has that world and the comedic juxtaposition - but this still is very much its own film. Short but very funny - worth seeing if you're not one of the millions who already have.
