The promotional campaign for Swiss Army Man is having the time of its life.
When else will you get the chance to boast about Daniel Radcliffe's latest role being a farting corpse with an erection, in a movie so filled with farts and erections that it prompted audience walkouts at its premiere?
Never again, so now is your time to shine. Now is the time to build a website in which visitors have the pleasure of dragging the former Harry Potter's corpse around their screen to neverending delight; while said corpse occasionally cries out such wisdoms as, "I want to have sex."
Plus, if you click his stomach, he farts out one of many astounded and complimentary tweets about the film. The internet is truly a magical place, isn't it?
"I love that it's this perverse and mad," Radcliffe had previously said about the role. "It's exciting, to be honest, using farts for other than comedy, like using them for plot and emotion and making some people super uncomfortable. There is something wonderful about it."
Swiss Army Man stars Paul Dano as a young man stranded on a deserted island, about to end it all before he spots a flatulent corpse (Radcliffe) lying on the beach, utilising his gas to propel himself to the mainland before embarking on an adventure through the wilderness with his newfound companion.
Swiss Army Man hits US cinemas 1 July, with a UK release date yet to be announced.
