“I Am Root Beer” A New Film by Handsome Experts by Casey Donahue
Confession: I do not even like root beer. Why that’s okay: I Am Root Beer is not actually about root beer. The hyper-surrealistic short is actually just an edgy satire about following your dreams no matter how seemingly absurd they may be. In this film’s case, the scenario is played out by an up-and-coming surgeon who gives up a financially promising career to pursue his life-long ambition of becoming the titular beverage. The comedic prowess required to effectively pull that off is considerable, but filmmaker Casey Donahue (of the media collective Handsome Experts) has the qualifying resume. On top of regularly appearing at Upright Citizens Brigade and popular humor sites like Funny Or Die and College Humor, he’s known as the “Greatest Rapper In The Financial District of New York City, Probably.” I mean, seriously. (Spoiler alert: get a glimpse of his skills at the 1:50 mark.)
