The Phony Trilogy: Pool Boy – Caddy – The Horror

Joe Gibbons

(US, 1998, video, 3:00)

This is a lot of big talking reduced to nothing due to inattention. In ‘Pool Boy’ personally teach Brian Wilson to surf, and joined in on the choruses with great success. We played golf with a galaxy of stars in ‘Caddy’ and provided the inspiration for Coppola’s film ‘Apocalypse Now’ in ‘The Horror’. What we’re really dealing with here is ice cream. The fantasy of the main character is emphasised by the animations which visually depict the content of his boasts. These are hugely in contrast to what’s really real, though.
