Hungry America Gets Angry, Famous America Gets Silly

We live in two Americas. In the first America, movie stars Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman can take up a good two minutes of local news time to "do the weather." In the other America, an irate woman can assault a fast food employee for refusing to serve her chicken nuggets.

Either way, they're all on TV. So maybe there's just one America after all.

Look at the hourglass figure on Cera. VaVaVoom! I hope he likes my new bike. It's blue.

1. There's a third America: those of us who like to watch;
2. I wish the casts of the two videos were switched;
3. Academy FUCKING Award to the McD's employee who served the next customer in the drive-up.

Seriously. I almost started to cry.

Definitively the best ending to any YouTube video ever.

This is what makes this country great.

The last 5 seconds of that video are definitely the funniest part.

When will Jason Schwartzman go away? When he gets is pot of gold? Or, just pot? I'd gladly give him some Afternoon Delight if he'll just disappear for good.

He and Michael Cera interview each other in this month's 'Interview.'

After I read it, I had to take a long walk.

That sounds like my worst nightmare.

There is at least an entire column of them talking about synthesizers.

Cocaine is hell of a drug.

There is only one celebrity weatherman I trust.

Very disappointed to learn that it's not just my speakers, and "there is no audio on this video" (per helpful "guidance" from BBC News). I mean, the dialogue I'm imagining in my head is pretty great, but there's a part of me that just wants to hear that woman screech for real. Also, the fact that there is a "lock the window button," presumably for moments like this, is wonderful. I assume it gets pointed out during first-day training: "You'll need this when someone wants chicken nuggets at 5:30 a.m."

The phrase "McNugget Rampage" is a winner.

Is Michael Cera in a new movie or Powerpoint presentation or something?

keisertroll (#1,117)

Why ISN'T PowerPoint getting it's big budget Hollywood treatment?

@keisertroll: their PR image hasn't fully recovered from the Challenger explosion

The cynic in me wants this to be the greatest viral ad of all time. See that bag placement at the end where they keep serving customers? You can;t buy that kind of brand building!

HiredGoons (#603)

But you can slowly wear down the willpower and automated responses of your underpaid and overworked employees to sublimate their own feelings and well-being to make sure THE JOB GETS DONE.

I hope Steven Soderbergh is writing a movie based around PowerPoint.

4 separate story lines: Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Word, which all converge into one AMAZING presentation. Stars Sasha Grey.

What's the crap on the window at the beginning? The crusty remnants of a chocolate shake or something?

Ok, but really, what is that thing that Michael Cera is in? It has him flying and then some Clip Art or something. Isn't he supposed to be making an Arrested Development movie?

Whichever America provides me with the larger boat shall be my America. I await your offers.

Lesson to be learned, America. This is why you don't do meth and go to McDonalds.
