Due to my intense, psychologically and emotionally crippling levels of self-loathing, this makes Wilson extra-painful for me to watch. Oh, those poorly timed glances at the camera, they are Casey Wilson's as much as they are mine.
The first thought I had watching the "ad" is how deep and gravelly her voice sounds. Some guys like that, but to me it's a symptom of too many cigarettes.
The video itself is pretty funny. I guess her only choice for career salvation is a self-mocking video on a comedy website. I note the irony of having a lesbian promote a website that historically been pretty conservative and unfriendly to the gay community. At least, I think she's a lesbian. She was dating a woman, but now I don't know. I don't read the gossip magazines.
Next, Funny or Die should do a JDate ad from Mel Gibson.
As usual, the video is after the jump.
Don't these post-mortems usually take a few years to take place? But this post isn't about politics. It's about Will Ferrell, and my thoughts are mainly about Ferrell's show, which has a certain raunchy charm, which apparently offended quite a few people when it played on Broadway. All the raunch is still in place in the HBO version, so if you're curious about Bush's little George (allegedly), check it out.
- So, if in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Brad Pitt starts off as a tiny old-man, why wouldn't he end up as a giant baby? Cinematical has the answer.
- When we were in high school, my friends and I got together with a VHS camcorder and made Scream 4. It was pretty amazing. What's weird is that even though we didn't get a film deal, Scream 4 is heading to theaters. Neve Campbell needs a job, people.
- Granted, I've missed a lot of movies in the theaters this year, but I still think The Dark Knight is one of the best films of the year. What do you think? Check out Cinematical's top 10 list.
- Hey, want to see something really creepy? Jerry O'Connell and his wife, Rebecca Romijn, are putting her maternity leave to good use by making Mystique and Me, a new Funny or Die video. It's quite funny and quite disturbing.
- As much as I enjoyed The Dark Knight, I don't think Maggie Gyllenhaal and Christian Bale had a ton of chemistry -- at least not enough to make it onto the Cinematical Seven's Best On-Screen Chemistry of 2008 list.
It says a lot about the power of online buzz, given that the last season premiere had only 100,000 views (before Flight of the Conchords had mainstream popularity in the States). Fans like me have waited two years for the next season (which, I understand, was held up because the duo was busy writing new songs for the second season), and it was nice to be able to watch the premiere online in advance of its initial television broadcast. Other networks should follow HBO's pattern to generate buzz for their programming.
I received a couple of their albums for the holidays (better late than never). My favorite song of theirs is "Bowie".
You guys, you guys! Flight of the Conchords is back. The show saw huge success when it premiered on HBO way back in 2007, and the soundtrack has been a must for all comedy fans that have their iPods surgically attached to their ears. Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement have captured hearts with their awkward deliveries and showed the world that funny music can be original and catchy without sacrificing the jokes.
The second season will kick off in January, but the first episode is already available on FunnyOrDie.com. You can also click after the jump to watch the full episode (US only) and read some words that I thought up about it. Catch the episode before it goes offline in a few days! Naturally, spoilers ahead, as well.
Man, Intervention is a downer. Between the alcoholism, the anorexia and the 8-10 per-day dust can huffing habits, it is really hard to watch that show and maintain a positive outlook on life. Luckily, Kristin Chenoweth, Broadway diva and effervescent star of Pushing Daisies, has found a solution to all that nastiness: a peppy song about the dangers of crystal meth.
Chenoweth has teamed up with Funny or Die to create her own episode of Intervention. It still has distraught family members confronting an addict in a nondescript hotel room, but instead of a laundry list of ways that Bob, a musician and a meth addict, is ruining his and everyone else's life, there's a peppy song about "Tina," the poor man's cocaine, that includes warnings about "waking up in a pile of your own urine and doo-doo."
The video is after the jump.
Taking a diversion from Will Ferrell videos, someone posted a preview on FunnyOrDie.com for The Sarah Silverman Program. In it, Sarah takes things to new lows as she tries to determine why her dog is so fascinated with licking himself by sampling the orifice in question.
The sample is from tonight's episode. TV Squad tries to warn its loyal audience in advance when television sinks to new lows of depravity. I could barely watch it the third time.
Did you know a person can be funny on television and the internet? It's true. Here's a few examples:
First, comedians Jim Norton (Lucky Louie, Tough Crowd) and Jim Florentine (Crank Yankers, Meet the Creeps) have a new series on Super Deluxe where they give super-brief commentaries on current events. The clips are not safe for work, or for most living creatures, but if you don't mind crude humor and lots of cussing, then check it out.
