Dialing Up Mel’s Phone Rants for The Beaver

In a word, brilliant.

YouTube user Birthdayboypresents has re-looped the recently released trailer for next year’s Mel Gibson fiasco The Beaver, with Mel’s telephonic tantrum voice now animating the puppet.

Watch it and weep tears of laughter, again, for the doomed career of a wagon-chasing one-time box office star. Seriously Mel, it may be time to put the Malibu church on flotillas and head back Down Under. And to Summit Entertainment, we say with regards to the box office prospects of The Beaver: Walter Black, Meet Joe Black.
