With more than 17,000 reactions and nearly a thousand comments, watchers have chimed in. Here’s what many had to say:

“I NEVER get sick of this. I watch it every time that the time changes and always laugh out loud. I share this with everyone over and over. Thank you so much for this …can’t wait for the movie ;)”

“I want to see a full length movie made about this, with 20+ minute techno babble dialogue, 2 cent drama, Captain Kirk style fight scenes, and Sean Bean.”

“People who sniff disdainfully at “parody and put-ons” don’t GET it how dead right-on some of these can be. And also, you have to know the genre back, front and inside out. It is clear to me that these mini-movies are the work of savvy, very sharp artists. Keep ’em coming..guys!”

“This was so on point – I loved it. I lived in that place called Arizona for five years and I absolutely loved not having to adjust my clocks twice a year.”

“Setting your clocks back an hour when it’s not automatically done is seriously a nightmare. I totally relate to the end scene… I have to push like 500 buttons on my watch and other tech. to figure out how to do it. D:”

“Should’ve won the Oscar…”

Though, sleep experts chime in on the other side. In their view, it’s ideal for the sun to reach its highest point at 12:00 noon. Ah, “high noon” as the old Westerns call it.
