The Bestiality Should Probably Stop

As you may be aware, I love me a good western. The key to that the word good, which are sadly few and far between. Especially when it comes to comedy westerns. Enter The Gunfighter, a brilliant short that is primed with the comedic dexterity and period absurdity that western comedies should be built on. And, it is elevated to additional heights of excellence by having Nick Offerman provide the sadistic, destiny spewing voice of the narrator.

Personally, I love the narrative device of an interacting third person narrator, and I don't understand why it isn't used more often. Seriously, the only ones that come to mind are Stranger Than Fiction and Winnie the Pooh. And now, this gem from director Eric Kissack and writer Kevin Tenglin. Enjoy.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
