THE SADDEST BOY IN THE WORLD - Hilariously Sad Short Film

Here's a wonderfully twisted short film called The Saddest Boy in the World. It's a dark depressing comedy that follows the life of a nine year old who plans to kill himself at his ninth birthday party. I thought the short was hilariously sad. It was directed by Jamie Travis, and here's the synopsis:

The world has conspired against poor Timothy Higgins and he has no choice but to hang himself. Always the dramatist, he chooses his own 9th birthday party as his stage. If you find this funny, good. If you're offended, it's okay—our paths were never meant to cross.

It's really weird, this is such a terribly depressing film, but I couldn't help but laugh. Maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't. I guess it depends on your sense of humor.
