...glitter cocaine. Opening it. Snorting it. Spilling it. Then screaming and grabbing at the air, as our fine iridescent dust blew up and out across the desert highway. A very expensive, very sparkly twister rising up from the convertible.

Having been involved, under distress, in a monstrously outsized glitter project (none entered the general environment thank gud) there is a point around 3am where snorting the stuff would make sense, sad pathetic deep perfect sparkle sense.

This is a really well-done take on a thing that's really easy to do badly. Right on!

On the other hand, based on what I've seen from interviews, I'm pretty confident that Frank Oz would hate this with a consuming fire.
