50 Shades of Buscemi is the movie I'd rather see

50 Shades of Grey, the film adaptation of BDSM-without-the-consent-part bestseller is almost here. It will arrive, with almost impossible cheesiness, on Valentine's Day. I fear that only the parody videos — like the above gem from Boo Ya Pictures, will take the sting away.

Replacing the central sadist figure Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan in the film) with beloved character actor Steve Buscemi, this trailer cut makes everything much, much better. The pregnant pauses. The dramatic music. The overwrought suggestiveness. Only Buscemi can save us.
