I’m sure it’s one of the signs of the apocalypse when one of the latest Internet phenomena actually shows some talent and won’t make you want to kill yourself (let me remind you that the Crazy Frog started life online as The Insanity Test), but the latest file to crash web servers the world over is the trailer to a life-affirming dramady about a boy who wants a father and a man who needs a muse, Shining.
OK, it’s not. It’s a trailer for The Shining, a film that’s less life-affirming and more life-ending, with more fellating furries than father figures (ooh, alliteration). It really shows the power of editing and according to the story behind it, they guy’s getting a lot of job offers from what started as a simple contest entry. I love it.
