Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorAppeal: Averted. It's doubtful Hans Moleman found any appeal in this.
* CreatorCameo: Hans Moleman.

''Man Getting Hit By Football'' is a classic short film made by and starring [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Hans Moleman]], created for a film festival in his small town of Springfield ([[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield the creator never told us which one]]). The premise is simple, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin it's about a man getting hit by a football]]. The film was not well-received when it was released [[note]]Well, except by one judge, who ''loved'' it[[/note]]. However it went on to be VindicatedByHistory, getting itself a successful remake which earned George C. Scott an [[AcademyAwards Oscar]].

* DarkHorseVictory: The remake, rumors persist Charles Montgomery Burns [[BribingYourWayToVictory had bribed the judge's panel to get his own entry to win.]] Ironically, he had also submitted an entry to the same festival that premiered the original. While he came in second place during the festival, his film wasn't as lucky at the Oscars. Ironically, the director cheered Burns' film with a hearty, "Boo-urns!"
