Why Watch? This week we’ve highlighted a few Oscar winning short films, but now it’s time to turn our eyes to a music video that channels a Best Picture nominee. With Wake Up and Scream, Geoffrey Arend (who you’ll know from Super Troopers and (500) Days of Summer) lends an alien hand, doing his best Peter Sellers impression in front of a war council before glamming out with the sort of bizarre energy that Danny Elfman and his Forbidden Zone crew would be psyched about.

It’s style over narrative to be sure, but they have the geeky cinephile sense to include a pie fight, and the whole thing is a crazy amount of fun.

What will it cost? Around 3 minutes.
