Jonah Hill Is the Most Half-Assed Celebrity Pitchman Ever
What’s funnier than someone trying too hard? Someone not trying at all. This time it’s actor/writer/producer/torture victim Jonah Hill who shows us just how half-assed celebrity sponsors can really be.
In this ad for Palace Skateboards and Reebok (or Ree-boke, as Hill calls it), Jonah Hill stands in front of a green screen somewhere half-heartedly reading lines about how how much he loves skateboarding, a sport he clearly couldn’t give less of a sh*t about. Then, with the magic of video editing, he appears inside of Palace’s “sunny London” store. (Though he’s still clearly tinted green from poor chroma-keying.)
Still not sure you should check out the ad? Here are some key quotes:
“Hello skateboard friend.”
“Let’s hang out and do some heel flips later.”
“Wax my grap tape and whatever other truck stuff I need.”
Now that’s quality comedy. Maybe he deserves those Oscar nominations after all.
What do you think? Is this commercial hilarious, or do you so loathe capitalism that you hurled your computer out a window in rage when you found out you were being lied to? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter @WhatsTrending on Twitter!
