YouTube Comedy Classic

Actor Jonah Hill freaks out during interview

By Joel McCarthy, Graphics Manager

This classic takes us back in time to the year 2007, when the film Superbad was doing its press tour. The reason I like this YouTube video so much is that I legitimately can’t tell if it is real or fake. The video has Jonah Hill and Michael Cera getting interviewed by Edgar Wright—who is now a pretty famous director, known for Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and most recently, The World’s End. He is a funny guy and I am not sure if Jonah Hill and Michael Cera were in on the joke when he asked questions like, “How do you feel now that you’ve peaked?” Long story short, it is a must-see clip that ends in Jonah Hill giving arguably the most convincing pissed off performance of his career—which has me believing that this interview could be authentic.
