The Wrong Ferarri [sic] is a feature-film written and directed by Adam Green. Conceived on Green's European music tour in the summer of 2010, the film was shot entirely on an iPhone camera, with Green writing the script for the actors on index cards.[1] Scenes were shot in France, Prague, Venice, The Jersey Shore and New York City. Green has stated that The Wrong Ferarri was inspired by Woody Allen's Bananas, Alejandro Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain, "Weird Al" Yankovic's UHF, Robert Downey, Sr.'s Putney Swope and the television show Seinfeld.[2] The film contains strong profanity, sexual themes, and several scenes of nudity and is unrated by the MPAA.

The film's title was intentionally misspelled.[3]


The plot follows four of Greenster's love affairs, life as a video game character and the use of the hallucinogen ketamine. The film is structured as a series of sketches with Dadaist dialogue, and does not follow a continuous plot.[4]


The Wrong Ferarri was first released online as a free download. On April 4, 2011, the film premiered at Anthology Film Archives in New York City.[5]
