Fun as hell short!
I have no idea why, but Circus on Ice just pairs so well with that week’s feature, Monster a Go-Go.
It’s so bizarrely surreal that the whole thing seems like a big put-on or something… but it’s legit, and you gotta love how the riffers capitalize on that weirdness.
It’s a once-in-a-great-while short for me. The whole gut-shot deer part just makes it too bleak for me.
One of Kevin Murphy’s greatest longform riffs! The fact it gets Joel to break character and giggle just adds to the perfection!
I hear ya. That part bothers me as well. The clip is really the best part of the entire short, in my opinion.
