A local Betoota man is caught in a deep Youtube vortex this afternoon, searching for movie trailers before taking his girlfriend to the cinema.
Despite being told ‘it’s up to you’, it’s believed Betoota mechanic Jayden Edwards (25) was given a secondary ultimatum, after his girlfriend added he could choose any movie, any movie…. as long as it starred current Hollywood heartthrob Timothée Chalamet.
“She says it’s my choice but really it’s a two-man race,” Mr Edwards said.
“I either have to sit for three hours while this Chalamet guy pilots spaceships in the desert, or I have to pretend to be a grown asshole and watch him in some Wes Anderson thing.”
“I don’t understand why all the girls are into him, personally I think his face looks like a Mongoose bike seat.”
It appears that Mr Edwards is caught in the middle of the unfolding of ‘Chalamet-aissance’, a period that sees men and women around the world swooning over the young New York actor, who is currently appearing in every film being screened on movie screens.
After outstanding performances in Interstellar, Lady Bird and critically acclaimed call me by your namefilmmakers from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recently penned a joint statement confirming that Timothée Chalamet is officially “so hot right now.”
“The Academy has always supported actors as they reach their unique cinematic peak,” the statement read.
“From Brad Pitt to Jennifer Lawrence to Seth Rogen’s mid-2000s streak of fame, the Academy wants to publicly announce that 2022 is officially ‘Timothée Chalamet Season’.”
“As such, we fully support Mr. Chalamet’s inevitable transition into underground arthouse films before expecting him to make a brief resurgence as Batman in about 10 years.”
Back home in Betoota, after a bit of a debate, Jayden is believed to have decided to take his girlfriend to see dune.
“Yeah, I’ll take it to the sci-fi one, at least it has Batista in it!”
