Because everyone at the Underground badly needs a laugh, we’re reduced to throwing funny video at you – the latest from Underground Fave Filmmaker Steve Apple (we mugged Moldy Chum to get it).
Apple’s was the man behind Hustle & Fish – the movie that should have become Fly fishing’s Spinal Tap.
This short’s not fly fishing related, yet because it’s jammed with painful, awkward and funny moments (handled admirably by amateur actors) – and I dabbled in Internet dating prior to meeting the L&T – we’re watching it (again) anyway.
It’s a humorous video shot for Steve’s wedding (his wife is hot; all we can figure is her seeing-eye dog really likes him).
In truth, Apple’s deft handling of everyday awkwardness suggests a brighter future outside the fly fishing universe. (We’re thinking more Woody Allen than trout bum.)
See you in Hollywood (and congrats to the happy couple), Tom Chandler.
ps – It’s not too late to get Apple a present – we suggest buying a copy of Hustle & Fish, so he can move on to making his next painfully funny video.
