The Call

A trailer for the 'upcoming' blockbuster, "The Call". Screening at a 24 Hour's of Daylight location near you this summer. For 2013, the elements were: the sound of an "Authentic Sneeze", a Table Tennis Ball (Ping Pong Ball), a Bath Tub, someone must say "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir", the character "The Gingerbread Man". And let me just say, if at any point you find yourself asking "What the hell..?", just remember - When there are no women around, BOYS WILL BE BOYS!!! This version has the full credits - now including Bob's amazing friend Helene. In our extreme tiredness in the post-midnight final editing rush, we missed her from the original credits.... our sincerest apologies, without you this couldn't have been pulled off! ;)
