Tank's hand shaking so visibly while holding up the phone was pretty distracting, and the last 10 seconds seem like a leadup but there's no punchline. Excellent use of aluminum foil though.

Yeah, the ending was weaker than I would have liked. "That's fantastic" is the line that was required for the contest (and it had to be the last line). I'm planning on doing another edit, as I had to cut this to the bone to get it in under 45 seconds. I think the ending would be stronger if I let it breath more. Also, yeah. I need another take for that Tank/phone shot. We had to edit on a tiny laptop and didn't see the shake until we uploaded it.

Still, considering it was shot and edited within 12 hours, I'm pretty happy with how it came out.
