When I was in high school, i definitely got into a lot of shenanigans with my friends. Most memorably, we videotaped faked kidnappings of one-another, which would usually lead to bizarre places and situations. The more kidnappings we did, the more complex they got. The last kidnapping led to a fake birthday party for my brother, Scott, at a roller skating rink. It wasn’t his birthday. At the time, there was no YouTube or portal for us to publicly display our creation.
Such is not the case in 2010. Our culture relies on the internet and public sharing of data/information. Last weekend, Ridley Scott’s YouTube project was shot compiling the best footage that users submitted of their lives on July 24th, 2010. Todd Phillips’ Project X is rumored to be shot completely on cell phone cameras and lower end recording devices. The Rocker focuses on a band who’s success blooms due to a hilariously risque YouTube video of one of their rehearsals.
The official red-band (NSFW) trailer for The Virginity Hit has been released and it posing an interesting scenario. The film is a mockumentary featuring no-name actors in an interesting scenario. They plan to record a friend’s endeavors in losing his virginity to post on the internet. Since the cast is unknowns, it actually looks like it could be real. If I didn’t know that Adam McKay and Will Ferrell produced it, I would probably be convinced that The Virginity Hit was an actual documentary. I suppose that’s a credit to the writing and directing.
Go ahead and watch the trailer. I have a feeling that this will not be a movie to go see in theaters, but a good one to watch at home. Decide for yourself…
