Absurd and vulgar, this comedy probes the sensitive social sphincter holding back a much-needed dialogue on the obstacles to empathy between genders. It's set in the world of "branding", where our protagonist, Justin, is an intern. Young Justin seems in certain danger of assimilating into the misogyny of his environment and becoming a douchebag. But one night a mysterious blonde impregnates him with a bottle of high-end whiskey -- magical realism ensues.

Do Brands’ Lives Matter?” -Director Gillian Wallace Horvat for Filmmaker Magazine

“it has certainly won over our hearts” -Digg

“more short films should be made out of spite instead of corporate-sponsored contests.” -Fast Company
