Wow, what a title. It's right up there with Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World or The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Some of you may know this already, but we just took it from Dr. Strangelove: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. The title design actually mimics the movie title.
This short was inspired by fake news and how our President utilizes the phrase. If anyone says anything to him that's potentially detrimental to his image, he can respond with "That's fake news" and shut the conversation down. Even if the person pries further, he can respond with the same and no harm done. It could be the best way ever to defuse an argument or the best way to piss off a lot of people.
So then we thought: what would happen if a normal person did this in their everyday life? And that's what you see in the short above. Granted, the ending is completely unrealistic, but what do you expect from us?
Speaking of unrealistic, toward the end there's a (SPOILER ALERT) death scene that was inspired by one of our favorite deaths in a James Bond movie. It's not exactly the same, but there's some body parts...inflating. Watch the clip below. Start it at 40 seconds and prepare to have your life changed for the worst.
Take a peek at a few photos from the shoot below:
