Using a once in a lifetime loophole, these filmmakers made it to the top of the U.S. box office with their $0 short film.
We all dream about having our name in lights and having the top movie at the box office. But during corona, that seems like an idea from the distant past. Still, the thing getting me through these times is the fool’s hope that someday I’ll see my name up there on the marquee.
But two guys aren’t just dreaming it, they’re doing it.
Christian Nilsson and YouTuber Eric Tabach are friends who one day chatted about how movie theaters across the country were closed due to the pandemic. “We joked any film put in a theater would instantly top the box office,” Nilsson said. “Realizing the unique situation presented a loophole, we hatched a plan.”
That plan led to Unsubscribe, last week’s #1 movie in America.
