“Swiss Army Man” will probably always be known as “the Daniel Radcliffe farting-corpse movie,” but after winning the Best Director prize at Sundance and getting picked up by A24 it’s also become one of the most highly anticipated indie releases of the year. For those who can’t wait until its theatrical release later this month, there’s a new online game that allows you to, well, play with Daniel Radcliffe’s farting corpse.
Taking advantage of ragdoll physics and the premise’s own weirdness, it almost serves as an interactive teaser for the movie co-starring Paul Dano. “I’m dead, so you can drag me and also drop me” says some onscreen text at the beginning; once you do, speech bubbles pop up (“Am I dead?”) as well as a prompt to text “BUDDY” to a dedicated phone number. (And before you ask, yes, you can make it fart by pressing on its stomach.)
The game follows a similarly interactive venture A24 put together for “The Lobster” that called upon viewers to take a quiz determining what animal they would turn into were they to end up alone. “Swiss Army Man” opens in New York and Los Angeles on June 24 before expanding nationwide in July.
