Actor Enlists People on the Street to Help Him Improvise a Movie Trailer

Movie trailers tend to be somewhat predictable once you’ve seen enough of them — and the average moviegoer has seen dozens, if not hundreds, of trailers in his or her lifetime.

So when actor J.D. Walsh (Two and a Half Men, Dharma & Greg) decided to ask random people on the street to help him improvise a movie trailer for a police thriller titled Run & Gun, it’s not surprising that he found plenty of people who were not only game to help, but also knew exactly what beats to hit.

While the level of acting talent varies from person-to-person, the final trailer isn’t much different from what you’d expect from a low-budget thriller. The first half of the video is devoted to Walsh recruiting people for his project, while the second half shows the actual trailer.
