Breaking the fourth wall
« on: October 17, 2016, 11:58:14 PM »
You guys remember that topic yeah? I loved OnlyOneHighlander's story, where the people in it tried to fight the narrator and the narrator rained his passive agressive dominance on them.

And guess what I found today! A superb short western film in which "a lone man enters a saloon" but everyone can hear the narrator's voice!

It's brilliant.

I haven't looked, but if you go on the vimeo of the video, it's added by the director, so you can see all his other videos!
