Despite the title, our new short is NOT about popping Percocets, though there’s a good chance the people who filmed it were doing just that. Perc! Pop! Sprinkle! Such a mysterious title. What does it mean? Does it mean anything? It probably doesn’t mean anything, right? Who made these freaking shorts in the first place, and why? Who am I speaking to? How long will this rhetorical question routine continue? Which was your favorite Godfather movie? The answers to all these questions, and more, are definitely not to be found in Perc! Pop! Sprinkle!
This one takes the standard educational short goal, “waste the kids’ time while teacher sips from a flask,” to a whole new level, by actually showing OTHER kids having THEIR time wasted. A group of children, possibly detainees in a secret government prison, are put through a series of “exercises” meant to replicate the motions of common devices familiar to kids...like, y’know, an antique coffee grinder. But at least the motions...are also confusing and really dumb. Maybe the short’s real goal was to make kids shut up and appreciate ordinary jumping jacks and push-ups? Enough questions, just join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for the hallucinatory gym class fever of Perc! Pop! Sprinkle!
