This is called Rope a Dope and it's 13 minutes long. It's largely silent, and we tried channelling some Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, and Sly Stallone in this one.
So I co-directed and produced this with a good and very talented buddy of mine. It's meant to showcase his immense capabilities as an all around showbiz machine behind and in front of the camera. I'm very proud of the end product.

Great stuff. I liked how the bloopers showed that they didn't all actually hate each other.

That is monumentally awesome.
That's some catch, that Catch-22.
