Have you ever imagined how Louis C.K.’s hit series “Louie” would look like if it was a silent film? Well, you’re in luck because now you can. Thanks to the minds at the A.V. Club, they released a new video where they took the show and recreated it in a black-and-white short film full of wackiness.
“‘Louie’ is capable of re-contextualizing the big-picture silliness of the silent era,” stated the creators on their site. “To take the parallel a step further, we gave C.K. the [Charlie] Chaplin treatment, recasting scenes from CK’s show with an early 20th century look.”
The four-minute video was edited by Dominick Nero and is pretty comical. It is presented with an early 1920’s soundtrack and silent film editing mechanics. There are three parts in this clip with Part One titled “Louis Goes on a Date,” the scene is from the pilot. The second part is “Louie Hails a Cab” from the Season 1 episode “Travel Day/South” and the final part is “Louie Ruins Christmas” from the episode “New Years Eve” in the third season.
Watch all the Louis C.K. galore in the video above.
