Add Some Humour
The Cliché: If you’re going to be on the wrong end of a heist and find yourself tasked with repelling the criminals, hell, why not have a little fun with it.
They say the best way to deal with a stressful situation is to laugh about it, and we’re not sure who they are, but we’re pretty sure they’re right, that’s why we keep a team of comedians close by, just in case.
Appears In: Home Alone (1994)
How To Recreate It: Watch every episode of Jackass and Dirty Sanchez, and all those similar videos on YouTube. Once you have a concept of the hilarity of human suffering, grab a staple gun and a pair of pliers.
Get the appropriate actor nice and lubricated, we’d recommend shots of Tequila, and then shout action.
Have your hero give the guy a good few staples to the forehead, chest area and if possible, testicles, then after he runs away, keep the camera rolling on your staple-adorned baddie as he rips them back out.
