Fight Club Without Tyler Durden

If you've somehow managed to avoid seeing David Fincher's Fight Club (and never read the novel by Chuck Palahniuk, from which it was adapted), then you'll probably want to avoid watching this. But for everyone else, editor Richard Trammell's "Fight Club Minus Tyler Durden" is a cleverly executed little video, which erases Tyler (Brad Pitt) out of a key scene from the film, leaving our unnamed narrator and protagonist (Edward Norton) with, appropriately, just his thoughts.

It's a brief but effective clip, and will likely leave you wanting to see more.
