The 92nd Street Y in Tribeca pulled fifty strings and got basically every cool comedy person in the world to be in their commercial — a parody of a long-running, long-annoying commercial for the New York Times “Weekender” subscription. It’s a little on the silly-billy side for my parody-taste, but I do love Paul Rudd in glasses:

Yep. That was everybody.

  2. i don’t think i saw showalter but apparently he wrote/directed.

  3. Just like Coraline, its not great until the Hodgman is in it

  4. Hey, Zak Orth.

  5. The Shac girls need to be in more things. Was Heather in it? I saw SA and C, but not Heather..lame.

    I declare president Obama makes a rule that Eugene Mirman has to be involved in everything….and part B of that will be that Paul Rudd has to always wear glasses always.

  6. Leo Allen = Yes.

    “I’m a cool black guy!” CLASSIC

    The matter-of-fact tone he used when he said, “Shiver me timbers” was weirdly hilarious.
