Deleted Scenes of Women in Disaster Movies Written by Men

 

Have you ever watched a disaster movie and asked yourself, “how does this modern woman facing imminent death in the zombie apocalypse find the time to keep her armpits looking so fresh and hairless?” Perhaps you and your dog have enjoyed a night in with the television on, when you turned to her and asked, “wouldn’t she be more comfortable fighting vampires in yoga pants and a pair of sneakers? Those boots have no arch support!” Or maybe you’ve found yourself screaming in a crowded movie theater, “did the aliens steal all the bras?! Where are all the bras?! Dear Zeus, if you must make these women run for their lives, at least allow them their supportive undergarments!!!”

All fantastic questions and comments.

In the reality within a disaster film, I suppose we’re meant to assume that these women are born as smooth as a hairless cat with doll-like feet that make wearing high heels both stylish and comfortable. But, we all know that’s not really how it is. With the help of my director and editor, Smart Girl Machete Bang Bang, I wrote this sketch to show how ridiculous that kind of maintenance would be if we really were facing the end of days.

Whether it’s a zombie apocalypse or just your everyday life, we know Smart Girls like you are out there saving the world!
