What it is: You tell me

Scenes with action are shown.

It’s hard to know what to make of this part live-action, part-animated silent short. It seems to be a collection of unrelated footage thrown into a Cuisinart and edited together. There’s scenes of a waterfall, a segment involving a TNT being used to build a bungalow on Mars (hence its inclusion here), footage of football players in regular- and slow-motion, animated Charleston dancing, etc. It seems to think that it’s tied together by the theme of “action”, but that’s a very loose concept, and the end result is a headscratcher. It’s just another little oddity off to the sides of my personal collection.
