Two things: 1) People are looney fucking tunes. 2) We love to watch them.
The Final Member actually looks like quite the interesting documentary; Sigurdur “Siggi” Hjartarson, founder and curator of the world’s only penis museum, has collected penises (I really want to type “peni”) from 93 species of animals—including everything from whales to field mice. But sadly, his collection had one (reportedly) huge omission: the elusive human. Before he became too elderly or in poor health, Hjartarson hoped he could complete the collection, and what do you know, up popped a couple of
whackadoodies volunteers. Suddenly, the two men—one an American in his sixties, and the other, an 95 year old Icelandic man—were in a very strange race. In fact, one of the men is willing to have his terrifyingly named goods lopped off. Yes Pajibans, you really, really need to watch this entirely bananas trailer.
Directed by Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math, The Final Member debuted at the 2012 Fantastic Fest to good reviews, and we’ll finally get it in limited release (Drafthouse Films) and VOD April 18th.
