Do you know what a Blue Moon is? If you thought: a delicious beer then you are wrong and have terrible taste and should hate your tongue and your taste buds and never trust them on anything ever again.

A blue moon was seen in the skies on Thursday night — the first one since 2012 — and with it came the first trailer for John John Florence’s new movie called, drumroll please…. View From A Blue Moon. Watch it above.
