Have you noticed that songs about getting completely, vomitously, blacked out drunk are getting popular now? From Taio Cruz talking about his hangover and drinking until he throws up, to Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night” and Far East Movement and whatever Ke$ha is, it’s a sobering trend. The generation that’s in high school and college right now is trying to get on dialysis as fast as possible. It’s a noble goal, but it’s still no excuse for buying Natty Light.

Meanwhile, at least one film is celebrating the act of celebrating. Project X‘s first trailer was manic and hurried, but this second trailer (via Coming Soon) effectively gives as much backstory as the movie can muster: three high school kids want to make an impact after floating through unknown by their classmates. A party ensues, and then the party goes viral.

Check out the party for yourself:

Why doesn’t the guy yell that he’s a Golden God before jumping? Is that the cup of a carpenter? Tough to say, but the trailer looks completely vacuous.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing, and the movie itself might still deal with some serious adolescent issues, but John Hughes this isn’t (although it seems likely that an Asian exchange student will end up hanging upside down in a tree at some point during the party).
