Vertically Challenged: Check Out The Hilarious “Short Documentary” About The Struggles Of Being…Short

February 7, 2013  |  

Who knew short people, whoops, I mean, the vertically challenged, had it so tough?

If you peep out Soji Oyinsan’s short documentary (pun intended) that we found thanks to Shadow and Act, which is literally about eight minutes long, you’ll learn a thing or two about the plight of the tiny person. Shot in a very dramatic way, “A Short Documentary” explains the ups and downs of being short, as the five-foot-tall star, Moby Dikeh (Bola Rahman), breaks down the struggle to shop (because she can’t reach tall shelves), short people’s hatred of tall mop sticks, bar stools and even children…only because they always assume she’s a child too. The short clip is a funny one that breaks down how the main character realized she was wasn’t going to grow anymore, how a friend thought she was an underage teen trying to get into a party when they first met, and sheds light on issues the vertically challenged have to deal with on a daily basis, including being awed over like cute little babies. Even if they’re in their 20s. This is all news to me since I’m almost 6 foot myself. But hey, I’m not bragging though…

Check out the short documentary if you have a few minutes and let us know what you think!
