The Shot

I am not including The Shot on Kuriositas because it tells a profound tale which will change your life. Rather, I am doing so because I found the performance of its young star, Samuel Belbin (pictured), very, very funny indeed. It’s not often that I have laugh out loud moments online (he said sadly, bless the poor old bugger) but this provided me with two over the space of its three and a bit minutes.

So, what provoked such mirth? The Shot tells the story of a kid left alone in the car by his mother while she pops in to a shop. In the few minutes that she is away he does something that he cannot quite believe himself. Produced and directed by Chris Thomas and written by Richard Standen, The Shot will, I hope, put a smile on even the most cynical of faces!
