Fathyr Fest is the Fyre festival follow-up no one has been waiting for, and if it were a real thing it would be just as hilarious as the trailer.
There have been a lot of headline-grabbing documentaries released on Netflix recently. The one that has managed to generate the most buzz is Fyre. The telling of the tale surrounding the infamous Fyre festival. Perhaps the biggest disaster in festival organizing history as thousands of attendees showed up in the Bahamas to discover that the event could not have been more poorly planned.
As upsetting an experience as it must have been for those who went to the festival and lost a lot of money because of it, the internet has naturally been having a good laugh at it. There are moments during the doc where it is hard not to laugh. A group of dads has gone one step further than that and created a spoof trailer for a festival they have dubbed "Fathyr Fest."
The trailer was created by The Dad and if you are not laughing by the end of it then you better sign yourself up for a sense of humor transplant. The good news is that dads wanting to attend Fathyr didn't have to fly all the way to the Bahamas to discover that all was not well. However, as you can see from the trailer, the fest was just as big a disaster as Fyre.
Dads attending Fathyr were hoping to be met with cold beers, a hot grill and, most importantly, no kids. While that final promise seemed to be fulfilled, the others were not. Not only was there no grill, but there were no burgers either, as demonstrated by the organizing dad's uncompleted to-do list. Plus, those aforementioned beers, not only were they few and far between but they were warm. What has the world come to?
As you can see, the mock trailer is incredibly well done. It's packed with disappointed dads, Fyre fest references, and groan-inducing puns. The "organizer" even bears a remarking resemblance to the guy who organized Fyre. Plus, don't even get us started on Pa Rule. Personally, we think Fathyr Fest would be a great idea. Let's just hope if it does ever manifest, someone more equipped than those in charge of Fyre put the event together.
