Preview of What Is It?

I have now watched the Quicktime preview to Crispin Glover's self-made, low-budget movie What Is It? at least a dozen times. Crispin is dressed like a chorus member from a high school musical version of Lord of the Rings, there are more naked women in masks than you'd expect, and most of the actors are mentally disabled. No matter what the completed film is like, the preview is burned into my eyeballs for all time.
