Watch: Funny 'Sh*t People Say' at the Sundance Film Festival Videos

January 28, 2012

Sundance Film Festival 2012

While it's impossible to explain the experience of the Sundance Film Festival without actually being here in the cold and snow, there are some ways we can still give everyone a taste of what it's like to attend. For example, this video that was sent over by my friend Eric from called "Shit People Say at Sundance 2012", featuring some guy named Alexander Norton. When you're here, you start to hear many phrases repeated over and over, many of them becoming quite iconic, legendary, and often amusing to hear. This video parodies many of those phrases and gives you a fun idea of what it's like to be here at the festival.

This does feature expletives, of course, but it's funny and a perfect way to sum up the Sundance experience:

Update: We've added a few more "Sh*t People Say" at Sundance videos, as originally found via SlashFilm. These ones are made by Sundance Channel, and there's three of them, each with brief snippets. Have fun!

I thought these were funny videos to feature as the 2012 festival comes to an end this weekend. While he's got some good lines, they're missing plenty of others. Here's a few of Germain Lussier and I's other favorite Sundance 2012 questions: "Where does this bus go? Does this bus go here?" "Got any tickets? Any extra tickets?" "When are you leaving?" "Where are you staying?" "What's your favorite, what have you hated?" "Where is the party tonight? Is there a party tonight?" "Do you know any good restaurants?" "Where'd you get that coffee?" "Are you doing a midnight tonight?" "What are you seeing tomorrow?" "How many films have you seen?" "Turn off your cellphone." "Can you save me a seat?" Ah, Sundance, I will miss you.
