Let’s start off by saying the clip below, taken from the new Adam Sandler movie Funny People, is NSFW. So don’t click it if you don’t want to deal with a lot of swearing. About Facebook.
And apologies for the atrocious quality. The studio said it would takes weeks or something to get all the signoffs for approval, so we just found the movie on the interwebs and used that. In other words, watch this ASAP before it’s taken down, because it’s highly unlikely the studio will simply put up a bunch of ads on YouTube and realize this is great viral marketing for the movie.
Yesterday I showed a clip from the movie showing Seth Rogen asking “I wonder if Tom and Craig from Craigslist would ever get in a fight….Who’s tougher? Tom has more friends…Craig has weirder friends though. Craig has friends that are willing to do a lot more for cash, I’ll say that.”
But the really shocking stuff were the “f**ck Facebook, In the Face” comments. Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and, yes James Taylor all say it. Plus a lot of other quips, like MySpace cofounder Tom Anderson asking Sandler “Do you actually use MySpace?” Sandler replies “No, no no. I f*ck girls, Tom. I don’t have time for that.”
In all there’s about 5 solid minutes of MySpace footage, most of which is shot in front of a big MySpace logo on the stage.
Interesting use of the brand. I’m not sure I would have gone in that direction.
See the movie though. Best one this summer so far after Star Trek.
