“The motherfucker stabbed me!”

In funny ha ha on Monday, 28 July, 2008 at 20:01

Most people aren’t naturally funny. It’s a real gift that manifests itself naturally and effortlessly, so, as with other skills, talents, and intelligences, very few people are blessed with it. For all the times I vilify the wannabe clever people on YouTube making their own videos, there occasionally comes along something that makes you laugh out of cleverness rather than stupidity, or pity. (As David St. Hubbins famously discovered, there’s a very fine line between clever and stupid.) It’s not high art, but it’s good for what it is.

It’s a fake trailer for Good Will Hunting, where someone re-cuts a movie to make a different genre or style of film altogether (The Shining was the first well-known example of this). In this case, Good Will Hunted, it becomes a political action thriller. I think it works whether you’ve seen the film or not, because you can see the film later and still appreciate the joke.

  1. …haha! Nice.
    Now, will someone please recut the trailer for my life? I’d like it to be far more interesting than this.

    • Well, we’d need tons of footage in order to edit together something good. You mind being filmed for about a week or so?
