Shit Austinites Say

Taking cue from the popularity of “Shit That (insert whomever here) Says”, Austin filmmaking troupe, PossumBox, made this endearing film about the stuff that comes out of Austinites’ mouths. At first I thought this was going to be a biting portrayal of the pretentious hipster jargon that comes out of our mouths, but instead, I think we come across as kind of adorable. What do you think?

    I’ve noticed people in Austin always say “don’t worry, I’m not sick, it’s allergies,” when they sneeze or sniffle. But I can’t think of how that could be added into the video in a way that’s humorous…

      I think that’s pretty spot-on and funny though. You’re right.

    There should be a South Austin version. My favorites:

    “183 and I35 is too far.”
    “It’s colder/the air is thinner/etc. up north.”
    “I’m not paying $1.50 to go to Pflugerville.”
