Wenatchee 42 is a 2005 surreal comedy brickfilm by Hunter Wood and Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux. It is about a news broadcast that receives an interruption. It was inspired by Schaulin-Rioux and Ryan Barker's experience serving food to the elderly, who always asked what the daily special was.
On the television channel Wenatchee 42, the broadcast is interrupted by Wenatchee News and the newscaster announces that they have a special news bulletin. He himself is then interrupted by an elderly man who wheels in to repeatedly inquire about the special. The newscaster tries to explain that it is a special news bulletin, as the man mumbles about turnipped onions. The two then start blinking at each other, and their blinking begins to produce music, leading to a musical duel (referencing a famous scene from Deliverance).
