Beth by Kiss Acted Out

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:
