A depressed man climbs a tall building in order to commit suicide. However, his plans are interrupted by two peculiar characters of a nearby billboard. This night can’t get any more surreal. Or can it?

Though the idea of billboards coming to life isn't new (Fellini's Boccacio '70 segment seems to be the inspriation), the subject of suicide played for laughs is dealt with here with enough lightness of touch to cause more of a chuckle than it is offense for the viewer. The animation is also well done and the ending's bittersweet.
