Few things could alleviate the stress of the coming election, save for maybe an acupuncture session or a Hallo-weekend binge drink. This video, however, manages to do some meaningful damage control on your politically-wrung psyche, while giving you an entirely different reason to scream.
Written by Bill Kirstein and Ginny Leise (a comedy gem, btw) and starring Leise alongside fellow comedian Jeff Solomon, “Smile” can best be described as an anti-catcalling horror film that somehow doubles as a Hillary campaign ad. The video starts out subtly, opening on a romantic guy getting getting his roses wrapped at the bodega. He walks out, sees a woman walking down the street, and decides to whisper in her ear as she passes him: “Smile.”
What happens next is pretty much indescribable, so make sure you watch this until the very end. We’re not sure how the future POTUS will feel when she sees this, but one thing’s for sure: This video arrived just in time for Hill-aween.
