This is a trailer for Underground: The Julian Assange Story. And yes, it is serious. Australian TV station Network Ten is behind it, promising to capture and wildly exaggerate the thrills of the creation of the Wikileaks empire and the rise of little Julian to world fame.

And look, they've got a hunky teen actor even more attractive than the lady-magnet himself to play the role of Assange, in what the maker is describing as a "massive Australian movie event." We can only imagine how upset the real Julian must be that he wasn't contracted to play the role of himself.
