Mr. Foley is a short film by an Irish pair of filmmakers D.A.D.D.Y. who are known individually as Mike Ahern and Enda Loughman. (If you’re curious, D.A.D.D.Y. stands for Design, Animation, Design, Design, Yay.) In this short comedy, Mr. Foley wakes up in the hospital to find himself surrounded by a team of musicians playing a soundtrack for his every move. The name of the patient is a reference to foley artists: the folks who record everyday sounds for the use in a movies. You know, the people who augment the sound of someone punching someone else by hitting a bunch of celery with a baseball bat? The idea of foley work is to bend in and make the sounds seem completely natural. But nothing is natural about being followed around by a menagerie of  musicians in a world that is otherwise completely silent.
