-- Q: What happens when you stab a clown in the eye? A: He DIES. Just like everything else.
Clown vs Mime. The newest most amazing conflict in the history of amazing conflicts: Tom and Jerry, vampires and werewolves, clorox and bacteria, democrats and republicans. Like these epic foes of man's history, they spend all their time creating new and gruesome ways to realize each other's death. Will the Clown use a balloon animal noose to strangle the Mime? Or will the Mime use his powers to conjure invisible C4 and blow the Clown to Marrakesh? Watch and see!
The first episode can be seen on the filmmakers' indiegogo page: www.ClownVsMime.com. They are raising money to produce a full season's worth of episodes.
“There's an unlimited number of ways these two characters could kill one another,” says co-creator Brock England. “That's what drew us to the idea, that just about anyone could come up with a way for a mime to take out a clown or vise versa. If you had an unlimited imaginary arsenal of mimed guns or exploding flowers, what's to stop you? The fact that these are two archetypal icons in popular culture gives the idea even more credence. A lot of my friends are downright terrified of clowns, and we wanted to use that.”
There is no plot, no story arc, and no resolution. The conflict continues seemingly without end. One of the characters dies at the end of every episode and then magically returns for the next installment. The only questions are who will die and how gratifyingly bloody will it be?
