Counterbalance Collective’s “Pineapple”

Perhaps the raciest of Counterbalance Collective’s efforts at short films. Ed (Scott Murray) and Jane (Leanne Noelle Smith) return home from a party with cupcakes celebrating some event. Innocent and sweet.

It’s all rather normal for a young couple. Enjoyed the party and now time for sleep.

Well Ed and Jane appear initially as happy Millennials but all is not what it appears to be. Isn’t that reality?

Ed and Jane (such innocent and common names) have a bit of a fetish going on! Jane is a domanatrix and gets her whip out but fumbling Ed forgets his usual lines but on they go to sex as the pineapple in the living room gets rumbled around during the sexual escapade. Yes so things are not as they might appear to be as the doors of a domestic environment close to the world. Is this perversion or a different degree of normality?

Whatever it is it works for Ed and Jane. Does it work with you?

Counterbalance Collective challenges societal norms with what might be an outdated version of normalcy.

As our Canadian former past Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau said the state should not be interested in what goes on the bedrooms of the nation. Counterbalance Collective seems to disagree with this? You can see the short here
