The cringe is strong with this one. This short tells us the story of a couple who head to a dinner at the home of a "cool" couple they met through their kids' school. Much to their surprise, the dinner also includes another even "cooler" couple.

It's just one of those bad social situations that most people would probably just want to run from ("Ohhh, I think I have a stomach bug, better go!").  While a bit over-the-top at times, for dramatic effect, overall this short captures that awkward feeling that comes from people who just don't click forced into a social situation. Plus, there's the good ol' awkwardness standby, obvious envy.
