Legally grinding.

by Andrew MacGregor


Short Films: “Present Day Athens” - 2 mins 40s

Business is slow in Marion County, Texas… especially for the local sheriff. Fortunately, he can dance on the empty highway to Ol’ Dirty Bastard with impunity. Even if you’re not a fan of spontaneous body popping, Sheriff Hodges's rhythmic spin on parking enforcement is hard to resist. Stick around for the pyrotechnic finale, too.

Kudos must also go to directing duo The Coles, lead actor Brad Light, and choreographer Lisa Eaton, who between them create a routine that makes you wonder if Hodges is possessed or revisiting his glory days at dance school. Whatever you do, however, don’t call it arresting - that would just be silly.


Director: The Coles ♀
Director's Agent: Spindle
Music: Shimmy Shimmy Ya - Ol' Dirty Bastard
