Watch: A Daylight Saving Movie Thriller

Watch: A Daylight Saving Movie Thriller

All your fears in a neat two-and-a-half-minute trailer.

Every year over on the west side when the east coast clocks move an extra hour ahead of us our state talk back radio stations fire up like a hot sun on a warm summer's eve at 9pm with people outraged and wanting to throw in their two-cents about why it either sucks that we don't do daylight saving, or why it would suck if we did. It generally boils down to "BUT THINK OF THE FARMERS" on one side, and "THINK OF ME GETTING TO DO SHIT AFTER WORK" on the other. Ultimately it's a pointless argument - in 2009 WA had a daylight saving referendum which followed a three-year trial that ultimately saw daylight saving lose with ~55% of the country voting against it.

Redundant as it may be, year-in, year-out, people fucking love to argue about it. And who knows somewhere down the track there'll probably be another referendum, and the outcome might be the same, or it might be different. What we have now though is this lovely fake trailer for a movie that encapsulates daylight saving too perfectly. It's from late last year by parody trailer crew Nacho Punch, but it's worth rolling out as we west Aussies get back on our whinging bandwagon and argue about stuff for the sake of it.
