Are you like me, in that you practically lose your mind counting the interminable days between the release of Kevin Smith films? If so, you probably know Silent Bob (a.k.a. Kevin Smith) will be releasing his eighth film later this year. It's called Zack and Miri Make a Porno and it sounds positively Smith-riffic. Check out the plot synopsis from IMDB:
Lifelong platonic friends Zack (Seth Rogen) and Miri (Elizabeth Banks) look to solve their respective cashflow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
I can totally see that happening between lifelong platonic friends!!
Anyway, the movie's release date is still a while off (Hollywood is such a cocksmoker!)
but that hasn't stopped me from keeping up with the production details at The View Askewniverse, listening to Smith's weekly SMODCAST (it's a podcast but funnier!), and reading "My Boring Ass Life"—K-Rock's online diary. (It is not a blog!) Still, I've got such a Smith Itch and it seemed like nothing could scratch it until today, when Lunchbox totally outdid himself.
He posted a video featuring the whole cast of Z&M singing a very NSFW song called "I'm F*CKING SETH ROGEN." It's off the hook! I won't give the whole thing away but let me just say this—Elizabeth Banks has quite a mouth on her! Not only did the lyrics have me LMNO (Laughing My Nugs Off), it's actually a really good song, too. It scans well! All I'm sayign is, if Zack and Miri is even 1/10th as dirty or original as this outrageous comedy song, it is going to go down in the Kevin Smith Hall of Smame. Snoogie Boogies! (P.S. congrats to QuickStop Entertainment on grabbing that exclusive. I hadn't heard of this web content site but I am guessing they are psyched that they've found their "The Landlord.")
UPDATE: A few people have emailed me to tell me there are a few other videos floating around the Internet, made by Jimmy Kimball and his lifelong platonic friend, Sarah Silverman (yeah, right!) -- one is called "I'm F*cking Matt Damon" and the other is called "I'm F*cking Ben Affleck." (I won't even bother linking them here because I'm sure they'll get pulled down with Kevin finds out about them.) Just to show I'm not a hater I checked out those videos and, no lie, they're pretty funny. But I gotta say it's a little lame that Jimmy Kimball had to rip off Kevin Smith just to grab some publicity. Whatever. I think most people will see it and agree that, like most things, the original version is the best. (The exception to that rule being Clerks II, of course.) Hey Kimball—maybe you should leave comedy to the professionals. Just saying.
