Watch TJ Miller’s Sundance 2012 Short Film


TJ Miller made a short for Sundance called “I’m Having a Difficult Time Killing My Parents”. It’s funny, absurd, and also sincere and touching much like another short film he was in Charlie on Parole. Do you feel guilty now judging him for being in Yogi Bear? Do ya?
