Trailer – Midgets Vs Mascots (Gary Coleman Is A Freight Train Wreck)

headerlogo

Anyone happen to catch this during it’s festival run last year? I didn’t, although I heard a bit about it – mostly fanboy irrational exuberance over it though; nothing I’d take too seriously :P

As the title suggests… Gary Coleman, playing himself, leads the midgets in this “comedic freight train,” as he gets into actual fist fights with mascots, coaches and even former NBA star Scottie Pippen. Like Borat, much of the film is shot “guerilla improv,” as they surprise unsuspecting bystanders when the teams crash restaurants, bars and neighborhoods during outrageous competitions.

The film played at the Tribeca and Edmonton International Film Festivals. I recall seeing it in the Tribeca lineup last year, but passed on it.

It’ll be on DVD exactly a month from now, February 9th, for those interested. Although a theatrical premiere is planned in 2 Texas cities next week – the 15th. Why Texas? Well, watch the trailer at the bottom of this post, and maybe you’ll see why.
