| The smell of old is emo clothes gold!
The emo trend has become over popularized and ridiculous. This movie captures just how ridiculous the emo trend really is with witty narration. But this film not only satirized the emo trend! Oh no. It also somewhat makes fun of the jocks, and posers of emo. Yes, Christian Bretz takes no prisoners, it would seem. Made in the form of an educational film, the narrator shows Billy how to be truly emo, and breaks it down into easy to understand segments. We learn how the emo kids dress, how they are supposed to act, what music they are to listen to, and what they're supposed to eat.

Remember, children, the smell of old is emo clothes gold!
