The 10-minute short was incredibly well received by audiences everywhere and won an Honorable Mention in Short Filmmaking at Sundance.
Larry Charles, the director of "Borat", "Bruno", and "Curb Your Enthusiasm", described the film as, "Hysterically funny. Brilliant performances. Cuts so close to the bone that the laughs come at a price."
