Is it just me, or did the interviewer look like a combination of Michael Cera and fat Jonah Hill?

He's like Superbad: The Guy

I think Segel is the one who get high, and Rudd is the sober friend who feels compelled to fark with people while they're high.

Paul Rudd And Jason Segel Are High As Kites In Unseen Interview (Video)

If it's unseen, how is there video?

Jason Segel was high as a kite during the HIMYM panel at Comic Con too.

I like these Segel and Rudd but damn if that wasn't a terrible, terrible movie.  They probably had to be high to do any promotional crap for it.

I doubt Paul Rudd and Jason Segel will do 800 interviews, combined, in their entire careers.

I get was some stars say, that having to answer the same questions again and again can be a chore. But millions of retail workers have to spout the same lines again and again, often having to use the exact same phrases and questions again and again. With a supervisor within earshot ready to write you up if you don't use the exact words or if you don't get the customer to buy the extended warranty.

Difference is these stars are paid millions of dollars and have to do this for a few days. Retail workers have to do this every day for the rest of their career for minimum wage. And they get treated like shiat instead of fawned over and bought fresh coffee every twenty minutes.

You're a movie star and paid huge sums of money. Man up. Do the job or quit.

Really? So if I worked at McDonalds I could just tell them I don't want to do fries? Or ever serve customers? I can just decide what parts of the job I will and will not do?

If I don't want to serve customers I shouldn't take a job, such as McDonalds, that involves serving customers.

Thing is, these actors don't have to do these interviews. They could simply have their agent insist that their contract does not require them to do any publicity for movies. Of course that might lose them some roles or mean they earn less money, but that is their choice. They agree to do these interviews when they sign the contract and then biatch about them afterwards. While millions of people work in stores, factories and offices involving far, far more repetitive work, day in day out, for the rest of their careers.

I have no problem with stars being paid $20 million a movie, or even execs being paid millions, but when they take the money and then start complaining about a tiny insignificant part of the job, a "task" that millions would laugh at as a welcome break from work, then they need a slap.

fusillade762: Otherwise known as "Any interview with Seth Rogen"


He was once doing an interview (I think for Fresh Air, but I'm too lazy to spend two seconds Googling) when an earthquake hit.  In a later interview, he said that he initially thought that it was just vertigo from being so brutally hung over.

Do you? Would you still love being that guy if you know you're not actually blowing anyone's mind, only being an annoying schmuck? And that your friends are only laughing at your schmuckitude?

Being high is not like being a nine-month-old who is tripped out by bright colors and jangly trinkets.

If you think part of your job is dumb you could talk to the manager about why you felt that way and come to an understanding about why and whether it was actually useful. Afterwards you'd agree that it was necessary, convince the manager that it wasn't, or come to the conclusion that you and your employer can't agree on the utility of the task, after which you could take further action if desired. That action might be to quit or strike, or it might be to neglect the task in question, or perform it only to the degree that's specifically obligated -- which is exactly what happened here, and exactly what millions of those factory and fast food workers do every day.

In any case, reducing the situation to "do or die" is not going to improve outcomes for you or your employer.

I asked that same question to a guy who posted a video that was "banned by Obama". If it's banned, says I, then how is it so easily seen on YouTube? His response was that YouTube is freedom of speech. Teabaggers scare me.

As for this video, that smile Rudd was doing was creepy.

Oh I got it. You're calling me a baby for being scared of a group of people that literally shut down our government until they got what they wanted. They didn't know what it was they wanted, but they wanted it. But I'm the baby? And their followers are insane. They literally believe in demons and the anti-Christ and base life decision on that belief. They are paranoid and delusional, and they vote.

Sorry. We're way off topic here as it is.

My view on this is that they should not be high/drunk while on the job. And it IS a job.

They're being paid very very well to sit through those (admittedly annoying) publicity interviews.

Do your job and then go home to your nice, large house and get wasted on your own time.

I bolded it for you. Yes, I admit I brought politics into this thread. I said that calling an interview that is freely available to view "unseen" was similar to a wackjob teabagger claiming a video freely available to view "banned by Obama". Calling something the opposite of true does not make it true. Like quoting my post saying I own up to it as an example of how I didn't own up to it. Teabagger logic.

Well, this certainly isn't the thread I was expecting.

The interview was funny. At least Segel and Rudd were nice enough to give the kid a few extra minutes because they knew they were wasting his time. And hey, whatever show or publication he was representing got some content nobody else likely got, instead of the same spoon fed pablum that most shows trot out.

Everybody wins!
