Watch 'Scalia's Worst Nightmare' As Man and Dog Wed In Peter Staley's Farcical Short Film

HIV/AIDS activist Peter Staley got a considerable cinematic spotlight a few years back as a primary subject in the fantastic Oscar-nominated doc "How To Survive a Plague," and now he’s trying his hand behind the camera (and in front of it — albeit this time in quite the wig).

Staley has posted "Scalia’s Night Nightmare," a 5-minute short film that takes a farcical swipe at marriage equality debates (complete with a cameo from Michelangelo Signorile) by posing "the wedding of the century" between man and his best friend. It’s a very fun time (and it looks like Staley and co had a blast making it).
