Where Your Author Gets So Flummoxed HE USES ALL CAPS

This is the most elaborate practical joke I’ve ever seen. Check out this trailer; it’s for Tommy and the Cool Mule. It’s one of those amusing comedy videos. It’s not Funny or Die, but it’s gotta be someone. Someone a lot smarter than Will Ferrell anyway, because they’ve not only created a trailer for the movie — which stars Kevin Sorbo, while Ice T provides the mule’s voice — but they’ve also somehow created an iMDB page and secured a release date in late May. They even got a distributor to go along with the hoax.

Wait? No. It’s real. IT’S FUCKING REAL?! You have got to be kidding me. There is no way on God’s green motherfucking Earth that this movie is real. I refuse to believe that a man sat down, wrote a script, secured financing, hired a crew, amassed a cast, and actually filmed a movie ABOUT A MOTHERFUCKING TALKING MULE and then had the audacity to actually title it TOMMY AND THE COOL MULE.

I’m sorry. I don’t often go the ALL CAP route. Something leapt out of my chest. I think it might have been my soul.

Believable unfuck, folks. Watch it. You will be amazed. Not at the trailer. But that it’s for an ACTUAL MOVIE.
