    That was really cute, and pretty sad. A nice eulogy actually. Did anyone notice Dwayne's "Texas" was credited at the end?

    I have one I'm working on now, it was shot on d*****l but it's looking good so far, I'm going to do a remake with an 8mm camera soon enough.

    When you do, let me know where you get the 8mm film, and where to get it processed!

    Then I'll need a projector too....

    It's interesting that Kodak actually ceased manufacture of Kodachrome in 1996 four years ago.

    I don't know if anyone else caught this, but I just watched the clip again, and noticed the guy was holding a NIKKOR camera, not a NIKON, giving away the fact this is a German film.
