Humor: a new version of "The Shining"

This is really funny.

A guy named Robert Ryang made a movie trailer that presents the Jack Nicholson film "The Shining" as a romantic comedy. What's so hilarious is that it works--anyone who hadn't heard of the book or movie before would think it really was a romantic comedy. This shows the power of scene selection and music.

The New York Times ran an article of Robert and his no-longer-secret trailer.
