Cameron Crowe Should Have Made ‘We Bought A Jail’

For those who prefer to watch guys get beaten and anally raped over families that buy zoos, this mashed-up trailer is for you. Some dear, dear soul took the trailer for the tepidly-received Cameron Crowe film We Bought a Zoo and mashed it up with The Shawshank Redemption.

Adding elements of The Shawshank Redemption to anything is like inviting T-Pain to sing a verse on your hip-hop album – it always makes the original work better. I didn’t see We Bought a Zoo because it was a Cameron Crowe film about a family that lost its mom and bought a damn zoo. I keep watching The Shawshank Redemption because it’s a film¬†about¬†life in prison that features Morgan Freeman.

It’s virtually indisputable that the latter shines brighter than the former, and Crowe’s purebred rock soundtrack meshes surprisingly well with the droning chants of “fresh fish.”
