Nope. Sorry but no man looks good in a mustache. It's lecherous, smarmy & gross. (I make a slight exception for Jem's porn stache of course but it still looked dirty).

Here's the link, Venus, you linked to the Conchords on Current TV.

I love that film. It's so odd and funny.

Taika has very hairy hands. He's adorable though. The vid was cute.

I adore this, another short film with only Taika and Loren in it:


Fave quote: "Some insensitive white man left this banana lying around the field, and this mouse got it lodged into his leg!

It's just like Avatar, but better :lol:

That was the best part coz it looked like Loren was going to laugh.

This kind of bothers me in the same way I was sometimes mildly icked out by EVS. These people seem to be borderline mentally disabled and that's kind of not funny to me.

I know what you mean, SW. there was some awkwardness for a few minutes.

I like how Loren gets him back by shoving a leaf in his mouth towards the end :lol:

I don't see it that way at all.
To me this short is taking a jab at badly-scripted and badly-acted movies, and I love it! :thumb:



edit: and plus, the hospital telling you in a letter that they think you might be gay? that's just awesome :roll2:

SW, I hadn't even read your comment yet and I was thinking "ewww..." Not liking how mentally disabled they seemed.

In EvS, I kind of felt like Jared had AS in addition to the dysfunctional family....so I got him and totally understood why he was the way he was. Here, it's just too over-the-top for my taste.

Though I liked the humor of Taika and Loren doing all of the characters and the purposefully bad camera-work, acting, and editing. :)

I actually went back over the part where he feeds her the leaf (shoves it into her mouth, lol!) a few times cuz it was so funny!

This phrase popped into my head for some reason:

"Taika Baron Cohen"

LOL!

I am crying with laughter at the short.
I don't get mentally disabled.

I get two little kids making up an "adult drama" as they go. Jeezzz. This is silly..
