Does this look funny to anyone? That extended clip we ran earlier never aired during the Super Bowl, but this short new TV spot for Year One did. And it's not funny in the least. I really want to like it and I've really got some high hopes for it, but all that we've seen so far isn't really funny at all. So please watch this and tell me if it's funny and I'm just not getting it? Jack Black and Michael Cera star as two lazy hunter-gatherers who are banished from their primitive village aand set off on an epic journey through the ancient world. Check out the full 30 second TV spot for Year One below. And let us know if you laughed at all?
Watch the full Year One Super Bowl TV spot:
Year One is directed by comedy mastermind Harold Ramis, who played Egon in Ghostbusters and both wrote and directed films like Caddyshack, Groundhog Day, Multiplicity, Analyze This, and The Ice Harvest. The screenplay was co-written by Ramis as well as "The Office" writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg. Sony Pictures is bringing Year One to theaters everywhere on June 19th this summer.
