Flix for Short: Werner Herzog on stupid chickens


[Flix for Short is Flixist’s way of showing off awesome short films we find around the web. Do you have a favorite short you saw? Why not tell us about it in our Community Blogs? We’d love to see what short films you can make and find!]

This has got to be one of the strangest things to ever exist. Here we have prolific film auteur Werner Herzog talking about the “enormity of the stupidity of chickens” for all of 40 seconds. I know you’re thinking the same thing I am. Where does Werner Herzog get off calling chickens stupid? I mean, did he ever hear of such a thing as PROOF? Did he ever bother to look in the mirror to see how stupid HE is? He looks so incredibly stupid, doesn’t he?

He also proves that chickens are easy to hypnotize by way of his words. Amazing.
