LOS ANGELES, April 5 (UPI) -- The trailer for Swiss Army Man -- starring Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano -- has gotten more than 1.5 million views on YouTube since A24 posted it Monday.

"There are 7 billion people on the planet. You might be lucky enough to bump into the one person you want to spend the rest of your life with," said a message posted alongside the 2-minute clip.

The trailer shows castaway Dano attempting to hang himself just as a dead man, played by Radcliffe, washes up on his deserted island.

"I need you to help me get home, OK, buddy?" Dano tells Radcliffe who shocks him by replying, "OK, buddy."

Hallucinating from starvation, Dano's character believes Radcliffe's guy is talking as he drags him around, uses his body as a shield and various tools, before eventually riding his flatulent corpse off the island into the ocean.

Co-starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, the movie is set for release June 17. It screened at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
