The short and the short of it: The slapstick hilarity of FUEL

If you’ve been alive for more than 5 minutes, you’ll know it doesn’t take long for things to go from bad to worse and beyond.

Life is rampantly, crazily unpredictable and what might seem like a simple enough undertaking – in the case of FUEL, a delightful screwball short film by Jalabert Camille, a MOPA animation college student, it’s servicing a car – can suddenly become uncontrollably complicated.

It’s not funny for the person involved true but for those watching on, it’s damn near hilarious; and so it is with FUEL which in its short running time dispenses a delightfully large amount of Murphy’s Law-esque hilarity.

You wouldn’t want a day like these guys but as a way to laugh at the chaotic vicissitudes of life, it’s pretty wonderful.

Just don’t take your car there to be serviced.
