The business promo in TIM & ERIC’S BILLION DOLLAR MOVIE (dir. Tim Heidecker & Eric Wareheim, 2012)

I’m a huge fan of the surrealist comedy duo Tim & Eric, and this scene is my all-time favorite in Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie. I love the absolute mockery of corporate culture and the absurd levels they reach in their parody of a “PR video.” The premise of this movie is very simple: Tim & Eric must make a mall profitable to pay off the the billion dollars they owe to Hollywood Moguls. However, there’s so many surreal plotlines that go on in the film and it’s just a trainwreck. A beautiful, absurdist trainwreck!
