From the brilliant mind of Jacy Catlin comes a hilarious, heart-pumping thrill ride.

Local hip-hop stars P.O.S., Lazerbeak and Astronautalis have teamed up with Vine star Jacy Catlin (aka IEatAndDrink ) for a feature-length film's hilarious mock trailer. The Negotiating is the funniest thing we've seen this year.

Catlin stars as himself, an FBI negotiator who plays by his own rules. His partner, played by P.O.S. in the strongest rapper-turned-actor role in years, frantically tries to keep him in line.

The whole trailer takes place here in Minneapolis, famed "hostage capital of the world."

The professional-looking clip was directed by Marijuana Deathsquads member Isaac Gale (Har Mar Superstar's "It Was Only Dancing," Poliça's "Wedding"). In addition to cameos from Astronautalis and Lazerbeak, the homegrown affair features Minnesota-based editor Jolynn Garnes (The Beyoncé Experience, Prince's "Cinnamon Girl") as Catlin's love interest.

Catlin's had his finger on the cutting edge of music for a while. For further viewing, we suggest his 2013 review of Bon Iver.
