Island by Oliver Kunkel is a disturbing but also funny little video piece (NSFW).

Yeah it manage to make me think for one minute more then it deserves, I guess Oliver reached his shock-intention.

Someone should hurt that guy.

I actually found it somewhat interesting and mildly clever. It is, indeed, a film about God. Note that the fly, unwilling to live by the conditions set for it by a higher power, prefers to take its chances in the dirty bath water.

Or something.

Intriguing. Not at all funny. It would have shown slightly more commitment to the art had the filmmaker used a small bird.

With any luck the idiot will catch a disease from the fly and his dick will will off so he can get a taste of dismemberment first hand.

ricky gervais talks about a mate of his who did this exact same thing on his politics DVD. I did laugh though at the sheer simplicity/insanity of the video, cruel bastard.

this would've seemed so cool when I was 5, (or thereabouts).

What Armitage Shanks said made me laugh and almost not regret having watched that.

Im glad, like others, that this didnt end the way Ricky Gervais said it would.

I spent the whole "wing pulling" segment praying i wasnt about to see a cock.

Whats the deal with handling the fly with great care, and then ripping its wings out?

Yikes! We need a code system for "NSFW" and what type of content might be seen.

Yawn. That was a waste of time and bandwidth.
