The trailer opens with cheery bank teller Guy (Reynolds) waking up and heading to work. He stays completely unfazed as he encounters all manner of weird occurrences en route: shootouts, explosions, a man with a flame-thrower, and his pal Joe getting thrown through a storefront window. (“Whoa-ho! Mondays! Amirite, Joe?”)
Guy’s bank gets robbed on day by day foundation, nonetheless this particular day, he decides to fight serve, “killing” one among the robbers (“He’s appropriate resting”) and taking possession of the tiresome man’s glasses.
