Murdered British folk are as common as kangaroos in our fair land. Thankfully this is only a skillful recreation of this proud Australian tradition.

Last week we gathered some of the props for this little escapade and took them to a warehouse we have access to. This week final touches were added, the scene was lit and the blood flowed free! They are a series. “Killer” is above and then below are “Contemplation” and “Acceptance”.

Perhaps some making of shots later, needless to say there are several flashes and a lot of mess.

    A predictable outcome wherever VB is involved

    Quite! I think there is even a warning on the box.

    “The taste of this beer may provoke the violent murder of the purchaser.”

    Even in death, he kept on farting.

    And the irony is that his living farts were the reason for his gruesome death.

    Wow, that’s quite the elaborate scene. I’m impressed! That’s really stepped things up a notch or two.

    Yeah it was a fair bit of setup but fun to do. Made for an interesting change I thought.

    Bit and pieces came from everyone. Special mention to a local Carpet Call for the great looking used carpet. Large set pieces are credited to the good ‘ole abandoned drive-in – South Brisbane’s dumping ground.
