If you loved “Wet Hot American Summer” for its unique sense of absurdism, you will surely get a kick out of the trailer for “Second Sound Barrier.”
The car-action movie spoof for a film that doesn’t seem to exist is so ridiculous words cannot do it justice. So, here’s a blurb from the official synopsis: “Bored with feature-length narrative, Wain and Showalter extracted the essence of a feature film and blended those moments to create the ultimate film trailer – packing the ‘Second Sound Barrier’ full of their signature absurdist moments. ‘Why make a full-length feature film when you can blend and capture the essence of a film in 3 ½ minutes?’ remarks Michael Showalter. The resulting trailer is the tale of the three fastest drivers in the world and their quest to save Lady Billionaire. Struck with a mysterious illness, the only way to save her is to break the ‘second sound barrier.'”
