It's Like Ken Burns. On Acid. The Battle of Pussy Willow Creek Trailer

I used to love the History Channel. I would seriously put it on for background noise ten hours a day. Then there was a five year period or so in which circumstances changed (work, a terribly unreasonable imposition on an otherwise pleasant life), and when I came back to the History Channel it was nothing but an extended exploration of the possibilities of "Ouch My Balls".

But back it when it was lovingly slurred as "The World War 2 Channel" (before there literally was one of those), and before it was unlovingly referred to as "No Just Turn It to PBS, It's All We Have Left" the marks of Ken Burns were undeniable. Documentaries were shot the way Ken Burns shot them. There's been the inevitable backlash, what with all of the documentaries that bravely say that they will be independent, they will be unique, they will be exactly like Morgan Spurlock. But there are pretty good odd that if you flip on a historical documentary, it will be stylistically indistinguishable from those of Burns.

Which means that by all the gods of gravelly voices and panning and scanning old photographs, we need ourselves a satirical mockumentary. Here are two trailers for The Battle of Pussy Willow Creek, which despite being ready to go, has still not found a distributor, probably due to the boundless rage of Ken Burns' toupee:
