Comedian Doug Benson is looking to release a very bizarre documentary during the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX. [via FirstShowing] The name of the movie is "Super High Me," which is a take on Morgan Spurlock's hit "Super Size Me." Here is how Benson describes the premise:
"You know that movie 'Super Size Me,' where that guy Morgan Spurlock ate McDonald's every meal for 30 days? People actually paid money to see that. Well, if that's a movie, I've got a movie! I'm going to smoke pot every day for 30 days, and it's going to be called 'SUPER HIGH ME or Business As Usual'... I haven't decided on a title yet. But guess what? McDonald's is going to be in my movie too!"
In reality, the film will be a "comparative" piece, looking at the effects of marijuana when smoked for 30 days. Benson will compare those results with 30 more days of data, during which time he will not be taking marijuana at all. He plans to take the entire thing a step further by also not consuming any alcohol, in order to keep the results as clear as possible.
