Film Director Casey Tebo Steals Clam Chowder Ingredients To Prove An Important Point

(PCM) When film director Casey Tebo discovered that one of his films had been illegally downloaded from a torrent site and then passed around among the employees of a certain grocery store he was incredibly angered and decided to take revenge into his own hands.

Tebo entered the store and began stealing the ingredients that would be used to make clam chowder. Tebo ended up getting caught, however not without strongly making his point to the store about the effect that illegal downloading has on the artist and the industry. Tebo feels very strongly that online piracy is the same as theft and he felt that he had to make a stand and do his part in an attempt to battle this ongoing issue.

Tebo is best known for his indie horror film “Happy Birthday” and for directing live performances from bands such as Aerosmith, Judas Priest and Motley Crue. He also won an Emmy award for his work on ESPN E:60’s Dream On: The Stories of Boston’s Strongest.

After a recent conversation with a friend where it was revealed that the friend had seen Tebo’s recent film “Happy Birthday”, Tebo asked where his buddy had seen the film. The friend admitted that some guy had brought it into work. Tebo innocently asked if it was via DVD, however eventually his friend admitted that the guy had illegally downloaded the film from a torrent site and shared it with various co-workers at the store.

Tebo’s “Happy Birthday” film had a tiny budget with only three investor putting in about $500k, so after speaking with some other friends Tebo decided to take his revenge on the store that felt it was okay to steal his creative property. He figured just go to the grocery store and begin stealing the ingredients to make a clam chowder. If he got caught he would simply tell the police “He steals my sh*t, why can’t I steal his sh*t”?

Tebo created a video to go along with the revenge plan aptly titled “PSA (Pirates Suck A**)” which has been posted on YouTube and is quickly going viral. In the video Tebo can be seen taking about $30 worth of groceries, however he is caught by a store employee in the parking lot. The employee threatens to call the cops however Tebo protests saying that if it is okay for the employees of the grocery store to steal from his industry, why can’t he steal from theirs?

Tebo did eventually return the stolen ingredients, however he definitely made sure to get his point across about the ongoing issue of internet piracy. Check out the video here!

Here’s What A $100,000 Music Video Looks Like When The Artist Doesn’t Show Up

(PCM) Rap artist Young Thug had some pretty big ideas in mind when he hired director Ryan Staake to create the music video for his song “Wyclef Jean”, however the end results ended up becoming a hilarious folly of errors when Young Thug failed to show up for his own $100,000 video shoot.

In fact, Young Thug is only featured in the video for a few seconds munching on some Cheetos in front of what appears to be a private jet. Those scenes were apparently filmed by Young Thug himself and only add to the hilarity of the overall project.

Young Thug’s label and management team kept telling the directors that he was on his way to the video shoot all day long, however once he finally did make an appearance on the set he refused to get out of his vehicle because … are you ready for this … his Instagram account got hacked! Oh no!  We’re sure that warrants missing an entire day of shooting and costing the label a whopping $100,000 … glad Young Thug has his priorities in check!

Rather than just canceling the whole project director Staake decided to have some fun with the budget and put together a video the explains in great detail just how the original video shoot fell apart. The result is amazing and it is definitely one of the more creative disaster stories we have seen. The artist and label must have agreed because they still allowed the video be released and are probably now cashing in on some of that good ol’ viral fame!

Either way Staake made the best of a bad situation and the video below is brilliant. Check it out:

It’s Creepy How Accurate This Horror Movie Trailer For 2016 Actually Is!

(PCM) The creative minds over at Friend Dog Studios have made a horror movie trailer that depicts many of the tragic events that took place in 2016 and it is eerily dead-on accurate.  The video mentions events such as Trump wining the election, the deaths of Prince, David Bowie and Gene Wilder, exploding cell phones, the mannequin challenge and more. The trailer is brilliantly put together.

Friend Dog Studios was able to almost completely sum up what things were like this past year and it is truly terrifying to think of what is next to come!  Hopefully 2017 will bring a lot more positivity to the world, but for now we are just going to have to wait and see.

Check out the viral trailer below:

Pastor Visits A Mall To Tell Children Santa Isn’t Real! Trip Doesn’t End Well!

(PCM) A Texas Evangelical pastor by the name of David Grisham made it his personal mission to ruin the Christmas spirit for a bunch of children who were waiting anxiously in line to visit Santa Claus at a mall in Amarillo, Texas. 

Acting as a true Grinch, Grisham filmed himself taking a trip to the mall and going up to where the children and their parents were waiting to see Santa and then yelling at them all about how “Santa isn’t real!” You can only begin to imagine just how well this went over with parents who became outraged over Grishams’ behavior. 

Grisham posted the video, which has since been removed, to his Facebook page where he is seen saying “I’m at the mall in Amarillo Texas, and I’m going to tell the children the truth – that there is no Santa Clause. Christmas is about Jesus Christ – and that Jesus died on the cross to pay for their sins. So here we go, I’m going to tell, them the truth.”

Grisham approaches the line for Santa Claus and proceeds to tell the children that their parents are “lying to them” and the man in the suit they are about to go see is not real and is just an actor and Santa “doesn’t exist”.  Just awful! 

The parents immediately attempted to put a stop to Grisham’s rant and while the initial Facebook video which was viewed over 3 million times has been taken down, someone did save a copy which can be seen below:

Mannequin Challenge Takes The Internet By Storm

mannequin1

(PCM) Viral internet challenges appear to pop up overnight and such is the case with the latest internet obsession with the #MannequinChallenge! It is a very simple challenge that pretty much requires participants to literally do nothing!  The #MannequinChallenge calls for participants to pose in a dramatic fashion and hold that pose as if they were a mannequin while hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd’s new song “Black Beatles” plays in the background while someone films.  That’s all there is to it!

It has been a slow build for the #MannequinChallenge, as the first appearance of the hashtag was found on Twitter used by a group of high school students back in late October in Jacksonville, Florida. Since then the challenge has picked up steam and now everyone from high school athletes to sports teams such as the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Milwaukee Bucks have all created their own versions of the #MannequinChallenge.

Many were curious if the Rae Sremmurd song had any significance behind the challenge, but it seems it was merely coincidence that the original video was filmed using that song in the background and it seems to have stuck!  The group, which was formed in Mississippi back in 2014 by two brothers  Khalif “Swae Lee” Brown, 21, and Aaquil “Slim Jxmmi” Brown, 22, are just as baffled by the success and the challenge, but are definitely having some fun with the fame. They recently completed their own #MannequinChallenge, much to the delight of the audience at one of the groups recent performances.

What do you think of the #MannequinChallenge?  Have you made a video yet? Looks like there is still plenty of time, as the #MannequinChallenge is continuing to grow in popularity and doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon!
