Their short films, If Idioms Were Real and If Idioms Were Real Part II, provide humorous visuals for some of our favorite idioms like bending over backward for someone or cold, hard cash.

Of course, the peer writing tutor in me wants to re-title these as “If Idioms Were Literal,” but they still receive brownie points for giving me a barrel of laughs.
