It's true! Mashable managed to turn the Farrelly Brothers' very first feature about dim-witted duo Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne into a touching, dramatic film with that cliché indie aesthetic -- road trips in the desert, weird haircuts, and southwestern attire. Check out the remixed trailer below!

I decided to conduct a little experiement after watching Mashable's remix. I showed it to a friend who 1.) isn't into indie film, and 2.) has never seen Dumb and Dumber (I was shocked, too) and they were like, "Ew, that looks like one of your stupid cinema films." Then when I revealed D&D's actually trailer to them, they replied, "No shit...that is not the same movie. it on Netflix?!!"

It's fascinating to see how a little editing can change absolutely everything about a story. Seeing Lloyd Christmas transform from a moron who tries to woo a woman by spending all of her money in order to reunite her with it to a lovelorn and deeply affected man truly makes you realize how much responsibility an editor has every time he/she sits down to work on their timelines.

(If you were thinking, "Which hidden indie gems that sweep the Oscars are you talking about?" I know -- but it happens -- sometimes. Nebraska -- but only if you count nominations.)
