Here’s the funniest thing you’ll see all day.
Seth Rogen & James Franco, longtime buddy actor/comedians, are also hosting this year’s VMAs and for some creative promo, they stage the fictitious talk show: Dave Skylark’s Very Special VMA Special. Franco plays a deliberately dumb and inappropriate talk show host with Seth Rogen as the head producer directing things from the control room.
Among Skylark’s guests: Jason Derulo, Iggy Azalea, and Nicki Minaj who all appear and have to put up with Skylark’s ridiculous questions. Franco, as you’d assume, pulls all of them off perfectly with each segment with the artist getting exceedingly awkward and confrontational. There are numerous, hilarious highlights in all of the segments with Ben Schwartz also appearing as each artist’s publicist. Love the premise, love the execution so put aside 20 minutes, enjoy a late lunch, and watch above.
Look out for the text descriptions that are added in each segment. They’re all flawless. Example:
Also: easily one of my favorite questions.
“It was honestly so hard not to bust out laughing at this question, great job @sethrogen & @jamesfrancotv”
