Tim & Eric

Someone decided to give Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim of "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" fame some money to make a movie. This red band trailer presents what happened to that money. And it is insane.

Surreal, bloody, violent and yes, funny in the way only Tim and Eric can be (though that whole "shrim" thing is actually the least funny aspect of this whole endeavor), the duo present "Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie" and it's bonkers. Starting with a riff on the kind on low rent local cable ads, the trailer just goes all over the place from there with guns, sex dolls, blood, costumes and yes, shrim. Frankly, this looks like it would be amazing to watch while under the influence of certain substances (uh, not that we endorse that...) though it's also one of those kind of movies where the joke hit to miss ratio could be pretty even.

Yes, you'll also get a peek at the celebrity cameos which include Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Will Forte and Chef Goldblum (amazing). The film will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, but if you can't make it, the movie will go VOD on January 27, 2012 before landing in theaters two months later March 20, 2012 (weird release plan guys). Anyway, watch below. [IGN]
