I’ll take Lazy Teenage Superheroes for $300, please.

This short laughs at all the attempts at branded content out there costing far more. As one comment said, imagine if they had $600. (Richard Simmons’ initial inhaler gag alone is worth the $300.) Watching it, it feels like you just caught Robert Rodriguez’ El Mariachi for the first time, while itself a flick that wasn’t cheap, still cost next to nothing to make compared to a typical Hollywood feature of the time, or Clerks and what Kevin Smith did with credit cards to finance it. Here, a decent story about Lazy Teenage Superheroes for $300 probably just landed writer/director Michael Ashton and his crew on the radar of every film studio out there. Good on ya, youngins.
