As suggested by the title, this black and white silent brickfilm is a little joke... Enjoy the atmosphere, the setting and the music : everything is authentic !

Staff Review

Randy Yard:
Though the beginning, filled with perhaps a bit too much exposition, drags on a bit, it's a forgivable sin when the animation is as enjoyable as that found in this short. The feeling of an old silent movie is faithfully recreated, right down to the old-time props and set pieces, as well as the morbidly humorous joke the film is named for. The few effects shots are a bit lacking, but otherwise this is a solid little film. Well worth a look.
