"WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE SUPERBAD?"



A Superbad junket interview featuring Jonah Hill and Michael Cera melts down when a snotty British interviewer brings out the shiv. Pretty hilarious stuff, and I would imagine not too far removed from reality. Turn it down at work, though—it’s rated “R.”

That's Edgar Wright (of Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead fame) conducting the interview, signaling that this is, yes, staged. Still pretty funny.

I was wondering who, if anyone, was going to catch the celebrity cameo here. Nice one, RWK! I just love that little tweak in his voice: "So, what does it mean to be superbad?" Again, Cera turns deadpan into real art, and Jonah Hill displays again why confusion, then exasperation, then explosion can be so hilarious, even when, as Dave would say, you can see it coming a mile down Michigan Avenue.

I've seen it a couple times, but I just noticed near the end, while Cera is answering the Arrested question, there's a distinctive Seth Rogen laugh in the background. Interesting.
