Lava Lampoon

Published on .

Another atmospheric filmic extravaganza from Guinness, this time involving a spewing volcano that threatens the local pub. This local pub is presumably in Greece, if the Zorba-esque music is any clue, where Guinness is, for some reason, the liquid franca. At any rate, people run around shouting in subtitles, as we get quirky foreign film-drenched quick cuts of a boar eating cake, an old man in a bathtub, and a fat woman in her undies trying to save her laundry. Our hero inexplicably removes his boots in order to firewalk his way to a pair of pints. This has been anticipated, however, by the tag: "Believe."
