Why Watch? Because existential examination goes down better with a fast food beef patty and diet soda.

This short film, which was shot and edited in 36 hours, offers up the cosmic reality of an unstable atom (by placing a few trillion atoms in a fast food restaurant with cheap up-sizing). Apparently they also offer free ice cream on Thursdays, which makes me want to find this fictional fast food joint immediately.

The production was obviously constrained by budget (and the location doesn’t exactly look like a fast food place (unless that’s what they look like in Spain)), but the quality of everything here is at a professional level, and there’s a lot to love. A lead who is deadpan even while dropping bits of mayo-bathed lettuce on the ground, a script that sounds so pretentious that it draws out laughs against your will, and a premise where the pedestrian meets the absurd.

Also keep an eye on the camera work and editing because they’re both as sharp as a switchblade.

What does it cost? Just 5 minutes of your time.
