Mr. Nyustat got to know worldwide was the movie of "iPod's Dirty Secret" released in 2003, about 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

In addition, in 2005, Mr. Nyustat cuts the chain of the bicycle being parked in the town with a variety of tools with a dubious appearance as if ironing the bad security of New York where he lives, I released an image stealing the bicycle dignifiedly in the daytime. Many people are walking near the scene, but they do not care most of the time, so they steal steadily in just a short time.

Mr. Nastatt creates not only movies that pose problems for society, but also to grab the rope attached to the back of the car and to slide on snowboard, the town of New York that suffered a snowstorm. We also have a funny movie.


All of these movies were explosively spread around SNS and became "viral movies" which were played over 10 million times. Mr. Nyustat's movie is an example of something that sociologists advocated over 40 years ago, "It's a fun way to break through common sense," Mr. Contony is analyzing.

Mr. Murray Davis, a sociologist at the Northern Illinois University, argued that theorists evaluate not only because the theory is correct, but rather because the theory is interesting. Mr. Davis wrote the paper " (PDF file) That's Interesting! " ( Introduction Study on Interesting! ) "In 1971, in which the theme of what makes the theory" funny "or" interesting " We picked up.

Mr. Davies argues that "New theory is noticeable in denying old psychology, proverbs, inspiration, maxims, words, mediocrity etc." And "All interesting theories, at least interesting social theories are all made up of attacks on the world that the audience has, such as checking the common sense that the content of the theory is not challenging and natural Then, the value of that theory will be rejected "," What is believed to be X is not actually X "" What is accepted as X is actually X It is argued that the theory that there is no "is easy to attract others's interests.

The movie produced by Mr. Nyestat is content that disappoints viewers' expectations and it is exactly that Mr. Davis meets the condition of "funny theory" which he wrote in 1971. Mr. Davis advocated and the fun that Mr. Nyestat practiced showed is simple but difficult and potentially dangerous, but filtering ideas through this lens can make my idea get a bigger impact Mr. Contony said.

Mr. Nyestat also seems to be conscious of being sublimating his idea to a movie that draws interest of others with a filter "take a challenging attitude toward common sense", " I do not need a camera or a camera, I should do something I can not do ".
