Scroll down to "Demo Jail" for a short film PTA did for The Showbiz Show with David Spade:

i saw this over at c&v, it's not that funny. i think it must be bugging him that he still hasn't made a truly funny film/short/other, when comedy seems to be the point. get back to work pta and know that your jokes are best delivered as part of a bigger drama.

wow, I thought I'd gotten over PTA.
now you hav a reason.

if this is any indication of the direction that There Will Be Blood is headed, we are all in for a disappointment.

pozer saw a sneak preview of this short 6 months ago.

if i were to judge wes and pt NOW solely on the merits of their latest work, i'd have to give the edge to wes.  big time.

Here goes: look at PTA's flicks versus Wes's.  PTA's are dramas with little bits of subtle comedy splattered throughout.  Wes's are comedies with dramatic moments splattered about.  Wes is the comedian, not PTA.  So it's no wonder Wes'll make the better comedic short.  Any time a dramatist tries to be funny it'll usually fall flat.  Good comedy borne out of drama always comes as a result of the interaction of characters and odd circumstances in dramatic situations, which is where PTA is right at home.  So don't get your panties all in a bunch just 'cause PTA can't make a funny short film.  It's not his schtick.

Go on and tell me that Ben Affleck in braces asking Anna Nicole Smith if she'll be his mom isn't funny. 

Demo Jail, though... not funny.   :yabbse-sad:
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

yeah this is bad, but part of me wants to believe it was spade's concept and Anderon is just behind the camera.

he'd hav to be spazzing out on the ground to screw that up, all he did was stay still.

i don't think anyone is seriously saying this is the downfall of pta, it's just a dumb video. since when does david spade hav a show anyway??

awwww shit here it comes  :yabbse-grin: everyone thinking everything PT Anderson does HAS to be be genius
well, I liked the red hat.
besides this is lite candy. think of how many of you thought Couch was laugh-out-loud funny, and even though it wasn't, I still think it was cool.
in fact, if mr. D. Spade there didnt mention this was directed by PTA, no one woulda cared. And that's kinda good. I think.
YEAH!
