Urs Eggar, producer, writer, director, and actor -- along with the "citizens of Los Angeles" in Go West, Young Man has managed to spoof American culture by simply reacting to it. He has to somehow handle car salesmen, the perpetual television that intrudes on every moment of life in the motel, answering services with their bewildering messages, and neighborhood eccentrics who seem to enthusiastically accept the strangest new cults or fads. In the face of all these foreign situations, Urs deadpans his way through culture shock, revealing America to the Americans with originality and humor.
