ArtieTSMITW Drinks Your Milkshake

Brandon Hardesty is an internet comedian and performer noted most for his skillful re-enactments of scenes from various famous films on YOUTUBE. In each scene that he re-creates, he plays every role himself (even female roles) and makes use of common household items for props and costuming. He is a favorite of Jimmy Kimmel, who had Hardesty re-create scenes from some of this year's Oscar-nominated films for his tv show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Thanks in part to Hardesty's uncanny re-enactment of There Will Be Blood, "I drink your milkshake" has become a popular social catchphrase. One of Hardesty's videos has also appeared on a Geico commercial. Because of his internet successes, Hardesty was cast in a small role in the upcoming comedic feature film Bart Got a Room with William H. Macy, Cheryl Hines, and Alia Shawkat. You can find his re-enactments of some of your favorite movies on YOUTUBE, under the pseudonym ArtieTSMITW. My favorite, a scene from Jurassic Park, is below:
