*Online Premiere* Throwing back to a simpler time, long summer days by the pool with nothing on your mind but breaking your own record for holding your breath underwater, the new short by MP Cunningham “Agua Donkeys” has the heart of a child and the gaze of a horny teenager.
MP and Jer only care about two things in life: the perfect tan and the perfect girl. The tan is accomplished by their job cleaning pools — despite company rules, they work with their shirts off — and regarding the perfect girl, they’re both in love with their co-worker Jackie. Though grown men, they act like middle schoolers in pursuit of her ("Jackie, did you say you liked or did not like upbeat music?") especially immature since they must mask their true feelings to abide by the “no dating” company policy. They have big plans for asking her out on a date, if only they can get her fired.
Falling into a more chill stoner vibe rather than the uproarious stoner extravaganza of Cunningham’s previous short, “Ford Clitaurus” (our winner for Best Comedy last year), “Agua Donkeys” offers plenty of laughs and relaxing milieus, a worthy follow-up to the previous classic. (22 minutes) Starring MP Cunningham, Jer Jackson, and Baby Darrington.
