MOVIELINE EXCLUSIVE: Ben Stiller's Fox-Mocking Video Parody
I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume the following Ben Stiller video was not meant for public consumption, but as is the case with sex tapes, if you don't want your production company's lightly incendiary and completely hilarious inside jokes to leak -- don't make 'em.
Back in February, Stiller's production company Red Hour Films left its home at DreamWorks and took up residence at 20th Century Fox. Having been provided this footage anonymously and with no background, we're going to assume the short film you're about to watch was circulated among Red Hour employees and close friends to celebrate the move.
Framed as a vintage industrial film, Stiller walks you through the transition, first by defining what Red Hour is: the producer of such quality entertainments as Zoolander, Blades of Glory, Tropic Thunder and...uh...Jaws, all funded by their proprietary "Kosher Meat Condom" technology.
Among its many highlights:
· Stiller boasts: "Tom Rothman is so far up my ass, he'd probably have to send Jim Cameron up there with one of his 3-D underwater cameras to pull him out."
· A clip reel celebrating Fox's "rich history," consisting entirely of disaster-movie explosions, tidal waves, and poop-dipped orphans.
· A spinning jackpot machine featuring pictures of "always revolving" Fox executives.
· Stiller's execs Jeremy Kramer and Stuart Cornfeld, and their tabloid couple nickname: Jewart.
· A flying Zoolander who smashes other Fox production companies with a hammer.
· Ben arranged to be adopted by Rupert Murdoch, without Rupert's knowledge.
Anyway, enough description -- here's the video:
