Another day, another Wes Anderson film parody trailer -- this one's for a tasteful, adults-only offering called The Grand Sausage Pizza. (The NSFW tag is for dialogue and premise, rather than nudity.)

Oh, and previously.

Eh, the voiceover ruined it immediately. If you're going to do a parody based on the subtleties of art direction and production technique, you have to get it right.

You know, I never realised how hardcore Owen Wilson's up talking was until I saw this impression. Like a caricature sketch and you're like, damn, their nose is huge, and then you can't unsee it.

worth it for your title alone.

It strikes me as more a parody of SNL's parody than a parody of Wes Anderson movies themselves.

Like, this feels like it was made by someone who had never seen a Wes Anderson movie and was working off of the SNL sketch "The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders."

That can't be right... it's still not white enough.

Mostly limp except for the Owen Wilson bit and "It's a pizza. [camera pan] With my dick on it."

I thought it was pretty on point. It had the right amount of I guess Twee cuteness in the directing that I associate with Wes Anderson. Overall well done!

That really hurts my feelings?

What my novel presupposes is, maybe it didn't?

Unngghgh, that voiceover. I don't even understand how you can do it that wrong that wrongly.

Just goes to show how rightly Alec Baldwin does it right I guess?

Everyone prefers the SNL horror spoof. Mostly, I'm hankering for a full-on Anderson fake trailer trend. Westerns (film cowboys are already laconic), science fiction (they're actually robots -- not as much of a twist as you'd think), action-adventure (for the pregnant pauses during the bomb-defusing scene alone, which will take place in a Swiss clock repair shop)...
