The Epic Tale of the Hero who Fixed his Girlfriend's Grandparents' Wifi

H. Jon Benjamin of Archer and Bob's Burgers fame narrates this funny animated short, in which the quest to fix a couple's wifi is turned into mythic video game adventure.


Ballad of the Wifi Hero is adapted from Mike Lacher's prose piece "In Which I Fix My Girlfriend's Grandparents' WiFi and Am Hailed as a Conquering Hero," which first appeared on McSweeney's Internet Tendency. Animator Jesse Benjamin turned the tale into a pixellated short film filled with drama and the horrors that lurk behind the armchair, and H. Jon Benjamin adds just the right dash of faux gravitas to the miniature epic.
