We’re still several days away from the release of Cowboys & Aliens, and parody videos are already on their way, but none of the have this kind of star quality.
Special Effects wizard and YouTube sensation Freddie Wong makes no budget short films that receive thousands of viewers per day. This video however, will be worth millions. Freddie and director Jon Favreau create a fun wild short film as a way to help promote the Universal Pictures feature for it’s July 29th release.
“Jon Favreau contacted us and gave us resources and full creative freedom to make a video about Cowboys and Aliens! This is what we came up with!”
What they came up with was the highly enjoyable Cowboys & FreddieW (ft. Jon Favreau). Filmed entirely on the universal set, Freddie even got to use the actual wrist dildo prop worn by star Daniel Craig. Those spurs tighten up yet? Well they should be because the youtube star even got the former Iron Man director to take part in the short film parody. It’s great to see Jon with such a comedic side to a project he put time and effort into.

As an added bonus here’s the behind the scenes footage for the making of Cowboys & FreddieW (ft. Jon Favreau).
Cowboys & Aliens stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and Olivia Wilde. Directed by Jon Favreau, is based on the 2006 graphic novel of the same name created by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg. Cowboys & Aliens is scheduled to be released in the United States and Canada on July 29, 2011.
