Joy Division’s Ian Curtis crosses the street

We were endlessly tickled by YouTube user Brostess Snack Cakes’ recent tribute to Joy Division, “ian curtis rides a rollercoaster.” Sean O’Neal even called it “the dumbest thing I have ever seen” before admitting that he watched it 50 times. I was so inspired that I asked one of our ace video editors, Nick Moore, to make my dream sequel come true. And so you’ll find below “Ian Curtis crosses the street.” It took 30 seconds to think up, 10 minutes to execute, and will give you a lifetime of pleasure. (Below that, in case you missed it, is the roller coaster video.)
