Vimeo user Tommy Button has turned David Wain‘s cult comedy “Wet Hot American Summer” into a high octane Martin Scorsese thriller. All it takes is a Rolling Stones song (in this case “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking”) and tightly edited shots of some fluid camerawork and slow motion, as well as interjecting the words “Sex,” “Money” and “Power.”
To be honest, seeing all the familiar faces (Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Showalter, Elizabeth Banks, Ken Marino, Michael Ian Black and Bradley Cooper) distracts a bit from the Scorsese vibe. But still, it’s a clever mashup, highlighting how much cutting and music can change the film’s entire feeling. But if anything, this playful video reminds me what a great cast the film has and that I should plan a rewatch in the near future.
