The trailer is only 24 seconds long, but we definitely get the sense that this cast of characters doesn’t have the parenting thing down just yet, hence the short’s title. As an ice cream truck jingle plays in the background, several young kids run amok at a local playground with no parental supervision in sight.
One young girl braves the monkey bars solo with no one around to catch her if she falls, while another little boy busies himself by making angels in the sandbox, which has surely seen better (and cleaner!) days.
The camera then pans to the “parents” as they smile and seemingly ignore their offspring. Heather and Horrible Parents writer/star Ash Lendzion’s characters have massive smirks on their faces, while Larisa Oleynik’s character takes a swig from a flask. Uh-oh, this can’t be good news for the kiddies…
On last thing we glean from this short teaser is an approximate release date, as the brief clip concludes with a hopeful “coming this fall.”
In the meantime, Heather has been busy at work on another film, Romantically Speaking, in which we think she plays a motivating talk radio host named Ariel. Now if only we can get Heather confirmed for Glee Season 6!
