  • Some murders take seconds...

  • It's a gun murder. I like it.

  • - Some murders take hours... - (victim groans)

  • Now...this murder...takes years!

  • What is happening?

  • (laughing)

  • It began as a nuisance.

  • I feel like I've seen this video.

  • Oh yes. (laughs) I have definitely seen this video.

  • Yes! Oh god.

  • (laughs) I forgot this existed!

  • - (laughing) What?! - What am I watching?

  • Get away from me! Get away from me!

  • What the heck?

  • He'll use the spoon. Use the spoon. Yeah.

  • He dropped the knife. He dropped the knife

  • and decided to spoon.

  • - It will find you... - (laughing)

  • It will hit you...with a spoon!

  • (laughing)

  • Again...and again...

  • Why is no one outside the White House doing anything?

  • The Louvre has great security.

  • - And again-- - Stay in your house!

  • Just call the police!

  • - And again, and again, and again! - Wonder if it happens again.

  • - And again, and again, and again! - This is so random.

  • And again, and again, and again, and again.

  • This is so stressful to watch. I feel so sorry for him.

  • Isn't this like the ending to the Lord of the Rings?

  • It just keeps going on and on and on.

  • - And again-- - Stop!

  • - And again, and again. - (laughing)

  • He couldn't even commit suicide.

  • - ...pounding several soft spots into your skull. - Oh, that was cool.

  • - You got one spot-- - At the ribs.

  • - Over 12 years in the making. - Oh my god. Why?!

  • - Filmed on five continents. - The effort! The cinematography!

  • It's amazing!

  • - With a running time of over nine hours. - (laughing)

  • It's so dark.

  • What am I watching right now?

  • Oh! It smashed.

  • No...he has more spoons.

  • He has more spoons! (laughs)

  • I love it so much!

  • The horribly slow murderer with the extremely inefficient weapon.

  • Oh my gosh.

  • Can you endure...

  • 20,000 spoonfuls of terror?

  • (laughs) Stop! Too soon, too soon.

  • Slowly...

  • What?!

  • That was the most random thing I've ever seen in my life.

  • I loved this video. I loved this video.

  • I'm speechless.

  • I feel like I got horribly lost on the internet.

  • - (Finebros) Okay, so what was that? - (laughing) You tell me, man!

  • I have absolutely no idea what I just watched.

  • Guy hitting another guy with a spoon for entirely too long.

  • That was a death by trailer.

  • A trailer for a spoon murder mystery.

  • I just called it the spoon video from back in the day.

  • (Finebros) So the name of the video is The Horribly Slow Murderer

  • - With the Extremely Inefficient Weapon. - Wait, what?

  • The Horribly Slow Murderer...(chuckles)... The Horribly Slow--

  • The Horribly Slow Murderer With the Terribly Inefficient Weapon.

  • (Finebros) What was going on in your head when you were

  • experiencing the journey of this video?

  • My thoughts were, I swear to god, I wish I could be this funny.

  • That was so funny!

  • I was really creeped out and concerned, and then I was just annoyed

  • and thought maybe I should leave.

  • Then I was wondering if this was a prank that you guys were pulling.

  • At first, it seems like this B horror movie.

  • The moment he throws away the knife, it's like,

  • "Okay. This is ridiculous."

  • And it's definitely one of those things where the humor just keeps going.

  • It keeps going. It keeps doing the same thing

  • over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over.

  • And over, and over, and over, and over again.

  • He just kept on hitting him! It just didn't stop!

  • With a spoon! (laughs)

  • What?!

  • Spoons can be sinister in the right context.

  • - What? - Like eye gouging.

  • Imagine if you're strapped to a table and I come in

  • and melon ball your eyes out.

  • (Finebros) And what did you think of the villain with the spoon?

  • Very bendy.

  • Just creepy!

  • It reminds me of Jack the Killer, Slenderman.

  • What I immediately thought of was Death from Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey.

  • - Maybe he represented death-- - Are you trying to see art

  • where there's nothing, Phil?

  • Clearly, he has too much time on his hands, to hit this guy

  • constantly with a spoon. When does he pee?

  • (Finebros) What advice would you give to the guy being chased with the spoon?

  • Hit him with a bigger spoon.

  • Cover himself with magnets that push the spoons away.

  • Or maybe bubble wrap.

  • Pull down your trousers or something!

  • Weird him out so he runs away and goes, "Nah, forget this!"

  • He did pull a knife on him, didn't he, so he couldn't kill--

  • So he can't die... Oh, he can't die!

  • So he can't kill him. He can't get rid of him.

  • There's nothing he can do!

  • He tries to kill him, doesn't work.

  • He tries to kill himself, doesn't work. There's no escape. There's no escape!

  • It's a metaphor for life!

  • This is a metaphor for your inner demons,

  • kind of torturing you forever, and no one else can really see them.

  • You can try and explain it, but no one can understand it

  • 'cause it's your own experience.

  • (Finebros) What would you do if this guy was following you

  • - and attacking you with a spoon? - I'd hit him back.

  • I'd probably just go to alcoholism.

  • Maybe talking to him is the one thing that he didn't try.

  • All us British people are always making people cups of tea.

  • Make him a cup of tea!

  • Try to kill myself more. He only looked like he tried three times.

  • I think I'm more personally fearful of being annoyed

  • for a long period of time than someone inflicting

  • temporary violence on me.

  • (Finebros) Would you say that you liked this video?

  • No.

  • - I'd say no. - I'd have to say no.

  • I'd say I liked it.

  • I liked the idea of this, but the experience was less than extraordinary.

  • Yes, definitely.

  • It commits to the idea. It has this idea and it commits to it,

  • and it just takes it and runs with it.

  • It's so funny! It's a spoon murder.

  • It's so random and stupid that it's amazing.

  • (Finebros) This filmmaker spent 22 days making this film.

  • Wow.

  • What do you think about him making this thing so large in scope?

  • Genius. I wish I had done it first.

  • It's because they went to that extreme that it's amazing.

  • He or she was probably just trying to go viral with something.

  • It's just so much time and effort into something so not worth it.

  • The effects were amazing! I couldn't tell that they weren't in Paris.

  • It looked like this guy was at the Eiffel Tower.

  • You spare no expense when you're trying to make something for the internet.

  • They went through a lot of effort to make that funny trailer

  • and I really appreciate how much effort it must've taken to make that video.

  • It just kind of made me want to hit you with a spoon a lot.

  • (Finebros) This was actually a short film for festivals.

  • Oh! Okay, alright. I got it.

  • - Did it win awards? - (Finebros) It did!

  • It did? Good. Good. It better have.

  • (Finebros) So, even though this was for festivals, it went viral in 2009,

  • and has over 25 million views, even though it's over 10 minutes long.

  • You're joking!

  • Really?

  • (Finebros) Why is this kind of thing that would go viral?

  • Probably to annoy one another. I would. In fact, I probably will.

  • It's like almost if you wanna Rick Roll your friend.

  • You want to waste a friend's time, you're like,

  • "Here, check this out! It's amazing."

  • You could troll your friends with it, but at the same time,

  • share something that's really, really, really fun.

  • (Finebros) Why, even though it's so long, is it still so popular?

  • That's the joke. The joke is it goes on so long.

  • That is part of the joke. The longer it goes, the funnier it is.

  • The purpose of the movie is this is really slow, agonizing thing.

  • And now here's this really slow, agonizing trailer you have to sit through.

  • But you actually are experiencing how slow and painful the experience would be.

  • (Finebros) Finally, if this was a real movie, would you go to see it,

  • - even if it was over nine hours long? - Certainly not.

  • - Never. - No.

  • - Yeah. - Never.
