The R-Rated clip sets up the film in graphic detail with Joel Murray as a man despondent over the state of American culture who goes on a killing spree after being diagnosed with a terminal illness. Barr’s character joins Murray as they use handguns to mow down anyone who crosses them, including double-parkers, spoiled teenagers and cellphone users who refuse to turn off their phones during a movie.

Joel Murray, an established character actor with dozens of TV and film credits to his name, was most recently seen in The Artist playing a cop who rescues main character George Valentin from a fire after being summoned by Valentin’s pet dog.
