Ok, this is somewhat old (November of last year), and I am essentially stealing it from a post my friend Brock wrote, but this is the first time I have seen this.
There’s a funny short film parody put out by CollegeHumor.com called The Matrix Runs on Windows, and it features none other than my friend Winston Noel as Neo. I went to both high school and college at the University of Virginia with Winston; after graduating, he moved up to New York City to pursue a career in acting. I’d say he’s on his way up.
Brock found it via a post on Gizmodo, where they wrote
The crew at CollegeHumor have outdone themselves with their latest short, The Matrix Runs on Windows. The concept is pretty self-explanatory: the movie The Matrix if the construct was run on Windows XP. It’s incredible that content shot for the web is reaching the quality of the movies that it spoofs. Seriously, how good does this look?
