Your late lunch essay assignment

Given the extreme paucity of new ideas in Hollywood, approximately how long will it be until this becomes a feature length film, directed by Michael Bay, starring the Wilson Brothers and Ben Stiller?

Use ordinary least squares regression analysis, and show all your work.

EXTRA CREDIT: In what ways does this 3:11 minute video differ at all from an entire season of 24? I mean, other than there's no Chloe, or Kim being threatened by a Cougar? Or Audrey, for that matter.

Undercover cops, driving around, arresting people, and breaking down doors.

It hasn't been done already?

Looks more like a potential Bruce Willis vehicle to me.

I dunno what it means, but I'm almost sure that's Lt. Frank Drebin's old police car.

Greatest music video of all time.

You know how every time you watch a VH1-style "greatest videos" show, they always put Thriller as #1? They're all wrong. I've never understood why Sabotage doesn't get its props.

Directed by the brilliant Spike Jonze.
