parody of "The Box"

Courtesy the Starlet here's a nice parody of _The Box_ - the new movie, based on an old Twilight Zone episode, about a sinister magical box. The movie is supposed to be about situational ethics, but if you start thinking about the situation for a few minutes and about the fact that two people die in the world *every* *second*, the premise of the movie becomes a bit absurd. As the comedy video emphasizes.

See more like this at eBaum Nation.

Checking out the trailer for the movie _The Box_, one quickly realizes that the movie is not really about The Box at all. It's about dramatic music, threatened children, and things blowing up.

The situation of _The Box_ actually leads into a nice discussion about abstract empathy versus concrete empathy, but I'm too tired for that right now.
