The Bug Zapper- UPDATE!

My good buddy Doug and I made this short last weekend for a 48 hour film festival. You get 48 hours to write, shoot, and edit a short film. To make sure you don't start early, you get three "ingredients" that HAVE to be in the film right at the beginning of the 48 hours.
This year's ingredients-
1. A plunger
2. a case of mistaken identity
3. A line of dialogue (at least three words) that is said three times in a row by at least 2 people.

Enjoy the next three minutes of your life.

UPDATE!

The Bug Zapper made the top of Will Ferrell's 'Funny or Die' homepage. Check out the different edit of the film (without the three ingredients) at...

Even funnier than a candy-cane Rudolph...Have you pitched this idea to Pixar yet? Bug's Life II could use a new vilain...wait, is there a bug's life II?

haha, nice! I don't know how it can be funnier without the three ingredients, but it was wise to shoot an alternate version.
