Making a movie at Google’s headquarters featuring a plot that’s largely centered around Google probably has its share of perks. One of which would be the extra (free?) online advertising from two of top three most popular websites on the internet, including the Google-owned YouTube, of course. Now that “The Internship” will be out everywhere in theaters in just two weeks, an amusing little short film featuring Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, and Ben Schwartz (Jean-Ralphio from “Parks and Recreation”) has popped up on the site for YouTube Comedy Week, and it’s definitely not an advertisement for “The Internship.” Except of course it totally is.
The short has Ben Schwartz playing a clueless studio exec trying to pitch movie ideas to Wilson and Vaughn. The ideas range from Vince Vaughn playing a hobbit to Vaughn and Wilson playing Lincoln and John Wilkes Booth respectively, and it would be a buddy comedy! The short’s amusing in that you get to see Ben Schwartz riffing with two old pros, which is fun to watch in itself. The concept is largely reminiscent of the videos Vince Vaughn did with Ben Stiller almost a decade ago, pitching movie ideas to Peter Jackson and James Cameron. For some reason, it’s funnier to see Jackson and Cameron’s unamused faces than Vince Vaughn’s. At any rate, you can check out Vaughn and Wilson when “The Internship” comes out on June 7th.
