Denver Film Enthusiasts Re-enact ‘Weekend At Bernie’s’ With Friends’ Corpse

Next stop, Teddy T's! 

Just because you can’t watch Weekend At Bernie’s on Netflix anymore doesn’t mean you can’t play along with the home version. It’s simple.

-Go over to your friend’s house and find him deceased (if he’s not deceased, leave and try different friends until you get lucky).

-Now that you have your corpse, round up another friend.

-Snag the dearly departed’s credit card and hit the bars.

-Also, bring the dead guy around with you.

Well, that’s what two Denver rad party dudes did.

Prosecutors have charged Robert Jeffrey Young, 43, and Mark Rubinson, 25, with abusing a corpse, identity theft and criminal impersonation.

The men found their friend Jeffrey Jarrett unresponsive at his house late on Aug. 27, before loading him into Rubinson’s car and taking him to a local bar and grill, where they drank on his tab.

They then went to another bar, before returning Jarrett’s body to his home and continuing their night out using their dead friend’s ATM card to withdraw money. On their way home, they flagged down a cop and told him they thought their friend was dead at his house.

Neither Young nor Rubinson has been charged with Jarrett’s death, the cause of which is still to be determined.

At any rate, I’m sure it’s all just one big misunderstanding. They seem like pretty trustworthy chuckleheads.
