SFotD: ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamond’ is an Absurdly Funny Comedy That Turns LDP Into NPH

By  · Published on February 13th, 2013

Why Watch? The trend of celebrities playing themselves is wearing a bit thin, but holy hell if Lou Diamond Phillips doesn’t nail it better than just about anyone here. In Lucy in the Sky with Diamond, John (John Patrick Jordan) laments losing his super hot girlfriend (Marlana Carter), and to make it worse, she’s dating LDP now.

Fortunately, the star of La Bamba has some advice for how John can move on. Things get bizarre, and that’s before they start talking about the Spirit World.

This short from Joey Boukadakis is an Old Spice commercial distilled into narrative form. Pure comic perfection with syrup on top, LDP is instantly up there with NPH and Chuck Norris (who, himself, is too cool for acronyms). In other words, Lou Diamond Phillips is legen – wait for it…

What will it cost? Around 10 minutes.
