They say that genius is the simple idea no one has ever thought of before. If that’s true, then Bob Winter, of the ad agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky, is definitely a genius.
The short film Beth — which is Winter’s brainchild — is positively inspired. It imagines Kiss’ hit 1976 ballad of the same name as one side of a phone conversation between drummer Peter Criss (who handles vocals on the song — I’m assuming you knew that, but if for some reason you didn’t…) and his wife, Beth… and it provides Beth’s side of the conversation, too, ostensibly turning the song into a stereotypical sitcom fight in which the wife is upset because the husband won’t come home for dinner. It’s a one-joke flick, sure, but its brief running time keeps it from getting old. Watch:
