Movies dealing with post-apocalyptic scenarios often assume that the humans who survive the major disaster are rugged survivalists who are not only physically up to the task, but might also have the mental capacity to meditate on the state of humankind in the face of something so devastating.
But what if. . . when the world ends, the only people to survive are say, those stoner dudes who always pop up in Judd Apatow movies? That's pretty much the situation put forth in a hilarious fake movie trailer for Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse, starring Seth Rogen and his friend Jay Baruchel, and directed by Jason Stone. What's funnier is that they are driving each other insane due to an extreme case of cabin fever (naturally, they're pretty scared of what lurks outside their apartment after the disaster).
Hollywood took notice of the viral video and the guys got the green light to turn the "trailer" into an actual feature-length film. It has great potential to be really funny, though Seth and Jay annoying each other for one minute is one thing, stretching that to 90 minutes is another story. But these are talented guys. I have a feeling they'll work it out and keep us laughing.
