This is my video that Jason Bateman mentioned on Conan last night as the inspiration for his new viral ad company (6 minutes in). We did it two years ago as a parody, but apparently everyone thinks it’s a real auto commercial! Yes: we fooled Jason Bateman into starting a lucrative business. What a real sap he is, huh?
Peter Atencio directed. I wrote and featured in it. Andy Richter’s OK too.
(Also on Conan last night: my hilarious friend Ron Funches from Portland, doing standup!)
I’m not sure how the internet works, but I’m pretty sure this means Nissan owes us some money (skip to 6:00 to hear Jason Bateman call this video “the funniest thing I’ve ever seen in my life”)
I directed this sketch for Team Coco starring the pop star everyone loves to hate (who is actually very nice in person). It was written by Josh Simpson and co-stars Joel Spence. And yes, for those keeping track I have now directed sketches with two of the most loathed pop stars in the world (the other one being Kanye West), so if anyone knows Lady Gaga, let her know that I’m down to make it three.
