Here’s the trailer for the new Video Vigilante film spoof

4:00 AM EST on December 22, 2011

We've always had a little fun at the expense of local Video Vigilante Brian Bates. The fun, in my opinion, is warranted when you consider the guy sneaks around the streets of Oklahoma City filming John's and prostitutes in action, and then turns around and sells the licenses to those videos to make a quick buck. No hypocrisy there, right?

It's just too easy to make fun of the guy. Just look at the picture above. There are at least five easy jokes in it. Plus, when you call him Mister Bates, it sounds a lot like you are saying masturbates, which is something I'm sure Mister Bates does quite frequently while filming and watching his videos.

Anyway, local funny man and filmmaker Zane Larue is taking Video Vigilante humor to a whole new level. Check out the trailer to his upcoming short film "John Watch: The Rise of Ryan Rates."

I think this is the first time I've ever anxiously awaited the release of an independent, local produced, low-budget film. Unless of course, you don't count Possums. I've learned to wipe that movie from my memory.

Anyway, I can't wait for the first screening of this film. I think the real Mister Bates has a good sense of humor, so hopefully he'll be at the premier. He'll probably be the guy in the back videotaping a bootleg.
