'Almost everyone has found themselves depressed at a point or two. Maybe in the midst of the depression you thought about doing something drastic—something life-changing—something that might make you happy. That could be nice, but it's scary to actually take the leap and do it. Well, what if there was a service that took care of all the hard stuff for you?
That's the premise of director Colin Tilley's new short film, Mr. Happy. The film follows Victor, a depressed young man played by Chancelor Bennett—better known as Chance the Rapper—who is looking for a way out of everything. Victor wants to escape his menial job at the local Supply Guyz, escape the small talk with his drug-addled coworker, escape his ex who's getting fucked in some rich guy's pool. Even though killing himself sounds like the best solution, Victor just can't bring himself to do it.'
