Watch Star Drunk, a modern sci-fi classic.

So, a bunch of writers in Portland, Oregon decided to get together, get drunk, and write a script for an epic sci-fi short film. While I think all of us wannabe writers have done this at one point (hey, Steinbeck, Kerouac, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner, and Bukowski were all raging alcoholics, were they not?), these guys didn’t regret their decisions the next morning. Instead, they decided to take it a step further and they hired actors who would act out their film while equally as drunk as the writers had been while writing it.

The result is Star Drunk. And it’s as ridiculous as you’d expect – sort of like a sci-fi version of Drunk History meets Battlestar Galactica. It hilarious, especially if you’re a sci-fi nerd such as myself. Or maybe it’s stupid, but I also spend hours each week watching cat videos on YouTube, so I suppose it’s all relative.

I don’t know about you, but I’d like to see more of these. Perhaps with some drunk editing thrown in for good measure.

Ha. I was going to post this on Monday morning, but it definitely deserves it’s own thing!

Not as great as it should/could be, but it gets pretty amusing at about 2:40.


Yeah, the main guy is obnoxious, but the guy whose photo I posted had me cracking up as well as both of the actresses.

Actually, I found it was funnier at the start – especially when both of the actresses speak for the first time. There’s also some Behind The Scenes footage.
