Are you one of those folks that was super ornery and displeased by the announcement that the second season of HBO’s True Detective would feature Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell? (So were a lot of people, it’s OK to admit it.) Maybe you were tired of seeing that whole “middle-aged white man who’s known more for buffoonery than brilliance” casting schtick rehashed once more. Maybe you wanted to see more females headlining the cast — or at least someone with a new sort of hurdle to jump over? Well then, my friends, you might just be in the market for a pair of Tiny Detectives — the Kate Mara/Ellen Page spoof on the series.
Battling the limits of the law in addition to the limits of their own height, Page and Mara put on their best existential gear and traipse out into the land of Rust Cohle-ian virture (read: gruff accents) in order to 1.) take the law into their own hands, and 2.) make you laugh. Because it’s a comedy clip, silly! What, do you think Funny or Die has flown the coop on what they do best? Pish posh! It’s a silly little romp, nothing more, between two actress friends who happen to be very, very small. All they needed was Anna Kendrick to sorta round-out the Hollywood Shorties Club (a new thing we just made up right now). But maybe that’ll be saved for #TinyDetectivesSeason2.
So — would you trust a tiny detective? Let us know your thoughts in the comments. Take your time, no need to rush: time is a flat — oh you get where we’re going with this tired joke.
