Hollywood Puts Its Imagination On Lockdown

A new Quarantine trailer, you guys:

Hollywood Exec 1: Hey, Chief, what if we made Cloverfield, but with zombies?
Hollywood Exec 2: You mean like a giant zombie that destroys Manhattan?
Hollywood Exec 1: That’s great, Sport. Let me call upstairs.

[5 minutes pass]

Hollywood Exec 1: I called upstairs. They loved it.
Hollywood Exec 2: Awesome.
Hollywood Exec 1: But they’re not gonna do it.
Hollywood Exec 2: Oh.
Hollywood Exec 1: But they said you could have one handheld camera, and access to the old Barton Fink set.
Hollywood Exec 2: What’s the budget?
Hollywood Exec 1: 45 dollars.
Hollywood Exec 2: Hmm, that means only one zombie baby, but maybe if we film it from two different canted angles we can make it seem like two zombie babies.
Hollywood Exec 1: [Holds hand up for secret “fuck the audience” handshake.]
Hollywood Exec 2: [completes secret “fuck the audience” handshake.]
