Afternoon Fun: Baby Trashes Bar In Las Palmas

I'm trying to do the journalistically correct thing by offering all of the impartial, factual background info on this video. But mainly: It's just hilarious and is something you should share in the office to break the ice. (I have journalistic evidence from a friend that it works.)

It's actually a trailer for a film called Las Palmas by filmmaker Johannes Nyholm (you might recognize his video for The Knife) — starring one Helmi Hellrand Nyholm, presumably his relative, if not daughter. Anyways, the synopsis in his words:

A middle-aged lady on a holiday in the sun tries to make new friends and have a good time.

If you're still craving validation, it won the short film award of Gothenburg International Film Festival, Startsladden, as well as the Audience Award. My only hope is that the feature length (at 14 minutes) will hit American theaters soon.
