According to US film lore, strip bars are an every day accepted fact that most people regularly engage with in some way...
It's either true or a simplistic mechanic employed to describe rock bottom when the writers don't feel creative enough to find less misogynistic ways to represent a point in someone's life when the only way is up.
This short is filmed well, the performances of the actors are fine and the tale is interesting - just a disappointment that the obvious effort applied didn't extend to not including a strip bar.
"Is rock bottom really bad? Do you even know when you've hit it?"
