Michael Cera: A Brief but Heartfelt Tribute

Having finally gotten around to seeing Superbad (hilarious!), I'd like to formally express my appreciation to Michael Cera for being incredibly awesome, and to Arrested Development for discovering him. Even back when he was a mere 15 or so years old, he was one of the best things about Arrested Development (what a fun, sexy time for all of us). This year, he substantially improved my summer with Clark and Michael, his hysterical internet show with fellow awesomeite Clark Duke. (Watch it. Watch it all.)

Thus, in tribute to Michael Cera's comic genius, I present to you two of my favorite viral videos ever--oldies but goodies. First, "Impossible is the Opposite of Possible," a parody of "Impossible is Nothing," a video resume submitted by a Yale student applying for a job with an investment bank (truly hilarious if you watch the original video, which is pretty damn hilarious in itself):

Second, a video of Michael Cera being "fired" by Judd Apatow on the set of Knocked Up. He's almost his character from Clark and Michael in this one:

So thank you, Michael Cera, for brightening up my summer. May you always have a condom and a tube of spermicidal lube handy.

sniffle... Im so proud of our Brampton boy!...

Seriously. Is it fair that this kid is a comic genius already at his age?

That's right--I keep forgetting how funny Canadians are! And no. It's not fair at ALL. He's not even old enough to drink and he's producing, writing, and starring in his own successful internet show? Bananas.
