The Funniest Explainer Ever: “The Correct Insult”
If you believe (as I do) that explainer videos as a genre have matured into a bland production commodity, you are going to love “The Correct Insult,” a brash and hilarious film by German motion designer Janis Aschberger.
Created as his graduation project while studying at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, Aschberger’s film is based on excerpts from Glenn O’Brien’s book “How to be a Man.”
