GRRF: The Sound of Suicide Postponement
On 3/5/09, a stranger walked into a classroom at the University of California, San Diego, to give a guest lecture. But what these real-life students didn't know was that they were about to get a dose of the newest form of shock theater, a genre of performance art called "Demo Noir" in which a fake software demonstration is engineered in advance to go horribly, horribly wrong.
The absurdity of the cruel monologues, the comical excess of the endless technological stumbles, no matter; NOTHING dissuades the students from believing it is all real. Part comedic swindle, part cruel hoax, part psychological experiment, part eruption of post-college angst, the question remains...if you had been there that night, would you have been deceived as well?

his recent film:
1) looks exactly like a software demo from a guest lecturer, but is crafted to go really badly
2) the auditorium of college students isn't told that it's fake
That description doesn't give you the full picture though. My favortie play is Glengarry Glen Ross, about the desperate office guys trying to sell real estate over the phone. If you can picture what it would be like to do Glengarry Glen Ross in a real office filled with other employees and not tell those other employees that you are faking, that's what this is like. Like the other reviewer said, that hoax part makes it like Borat and Bruno so if you like those you might also like this. The writing here is better, IMO. Don't get me wrong, the guy who does Borat is an amazing actor. This is much more of a dramatic hoax. Like a long bank heist, done for real. I agree that nothing else is similar. If the creator of GRRF ever reads this, dude, your puppet videos rock, keep doing more bizarre Dobo stuff. People doing puppet videos these days either take them too seriously or make them annoyingly stupid. You have got the gift of being both hilarious and serious with a puppet at the same time.
