Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum release old-timey short film

Pin it

Entitled Morgan and Destiny’s Eleventeeth Date: The Zeppelin Zoo, this clip first premiered at SXSW, and comes from Gordon-Levitt's own production company, hitRECord. Shot in a very elegant-looking sepia, the film features so much cutesy language, it's like the love-child of Alice in Wonderland and everything Diablo Cody's ever written. I know that sounds damning, but somehow, it isn't. (This probably has to do with the fact that Gordon-Levitt himself is doing the narration.) If I were you, though, I wouldn't focus too hard on the words. Instead, I'd think about how Gordon-Levitt still managed to look cute even with a strange little Victorian handlebar mustache.

Is it just me, or do those Victorian neologisms all sound kind of dirty out of context? I'm thinking "pinkify" and "purr-called" myself, but feel free to point out your own potentially X-rated coinages below.
