"Foodfellas": short film from USC Film School, where the mob takes over the fast food business
“Foodfellas”, a satire short film by Reuben Guberek , from Film School Shorts (USC), 13 min, is inspired by “Goodfellas”.
A young man makes a deal with a clown figure in the mob to dominate the fast food business. Pretty soon he has to endure the consumer lawsuits for Type 2 diabetes. And then he hunts down his boss.
The shootout at the end is both terminal and funny.
I wouldn't want to own a franchise bad enough that it would be a mob target. And chicken nuggets don't look like bitcoins to me.
