Luther Campbell-Inspired Whoopee Cushion Invades Sundance Film Festival
The Sundance Film Festival is 'round the corner. In less than a week, thousands of movie industry folks will turn Park City, Utah, into an indie flick auction house, outbidding one another in name of independent film, binge-drinking their way from invite-only party to invite-only party, and collecting swag along the way.
"Swag," of course, is just a hip name for free shit filmmakers, corporate sponsors, movie studios, and the like both dispense and accumulate during Sundance -- sunglasses, iPads, spa-treatments, whatever. This year, Miami's bringing something a little different to Park City: gag gifts.
Jacuzzi Boys' Gabriel Alcala has designed a Luther Campbell-themed whoopee cushion to promote the Jillian Mayer-directed short, The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke.
Sundance selected The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke as one of 64 shorts screening at this year's festival, a totally rad, well-deserved accomplishment for one of Miami's gnarliest.

Borscht posted a picture of the whoopee cushion earlier today, rhetorically asking, "Who wants to sit on Uncle Luke's face?" Sandwiched between the words "Lukey Cushion" and "drop drop dat coochie," Alcala has illustrated a bespectacled, tongue-dangling Campbell between two palms.
Thanks to the Jacuzzi Boy, all of Sundance will get a noisy mustache ride from Campbell next week.
