NO FUNLAND ON SUNDAYS

You have 2 days to figure out why you shouldn't be doing anything fun this Sunday.

I.. just.. guh. The bit with the mom lying to the kid about why they don't shop on Sunday - was that actually how it went, or was that just brilliant editing? Because holy shit.

If Walter Sobchack can't FUCKING ROLL on Saturday, I think you can do without going to "Funland" on Sunday. MAN UP BOY!!!

Assuming EIT didn't edit the video too extensively, this is the most ill-conceived Christian propaganda I've ever seen. It plays like a textbook satire. I couldn't have made church sound more absurd if I tried.

Oh Mormons and their Heavenly Father. When will they learn Sunday is for despairing over the coming work week with awesome drugs?

Special things = not doing things? I'm with ya, Josh. This is confusing.

This is absolutely perfect.

Actually, it's one of the most honest things about religion I've ever seen. The kid didn't come around to their way of thinking at the end, and they don't really bother to explain their reasons, just 'do it our way, if you don't like it, too bad'...usually, the protagonist in these things gets all warm and fuzzy about god and wholeheartedly agrees after 'learning a lesson'. No lesson here, except religion is no fun and kids have to be forced to observe it.

I felt weird from the beginning but the instant that teacher-woman started talking about us ''living with the Heavenly Father and Jesus before being born'' I knew this was not Christian. Oh you, Mormons.

Question 1: I hae noticed that Jerry Macquire is in the fact the second most common bargin bin vhs found. The most common is the barely watchable but cult phenom Jurrassic Park. Are you collecting certain other vhs other than Jerry Macquire?

Question 2:What do you do with the 2,400 copies you have now? Thanks.

@Anonymous #6 (8:39am) & @Ravenhallow, this is a cut down version of exactly what they were saying except for one thing--in the real video the kid eventually gives in out of convenience to his elders (one of the biggest reasons that we still have organized religion imo!). I left it with him just bummed because I wanted to show the more accurately displayed feeling from the video of what kids go through without the easy solution, rather than the casual "now I understand it all, everything is fine always with Heavenly Father" message that they really end up trying to convey in the video. So it's a nice thought to think that they're truly trying to leave it up to the kid to make his own decision, but unfortunately it's not the case.

@mikeandraph87 we are only collecting Jerry Maguires in mass quantities right now, thanks for asking! We really gotta update that board though! We have more than a few past 2400 now.

The ending on this was KILLING ME. "Have fun in church."!

Ravenhallow said...

@RemLezar - I figured it would end up that way after your ending, but wow, all that leading up to it is spectacularly unsettling. A terrifying treasure.

I'm sure that smug bastard Mario is living it up at Funland right now. Fuck you, Mario! Fuck you!


*sob*

Ahh..Mormons. You so crazy! Even the Baptists think you're too stuffy and boring. They don't drink alcohol, but you don't even drink CAFFEINE.

The kid should have asked one of his other moms.

Sundays are for guilt, son.

It's obvious that the ginger kid wants him to go to hell. Don't ever trust a ginger.

wait a minute, Mormons worship two Jesuses? (Jesusi?)

Double Christ! Double the Christ, Double the Salvation!

"Maybe I'll invite Mario."
Yeah, 'cos Mario is Catholic, and they can cheat and go to Church on Saturdays.

Also: You'd think an operation with bazillions of dollars like the LDS Church could spring for some better animation than this crap. My dog draws better cartoons than this.

He will never do anything on Sunday?

His long weekends must suck so much.

The ending was King of the Hill-esque.

The ending is actually one of the most heartbreaking ending I've ever seen in animation. You can feel the disappointment and unsettling confusion radiating from the screen
