Jonah Hill and John C. Reilly's Cyrus 'Interweb Mashup' Video
Hey interwebs (that's you!) listen up. The Duplass Brothers' hilarious comedy Cyrus is currently playing in limited theaters (cities listed here) and it's definitely worth seeing. As an extra bit of promo, Fox Searchlight posted this pretty wacky new viral video of Jonah Hill and John C. Reilly making an "Interweb Mashup" song… or something like that. Basically they've got a synthesizer that contains sound bytes from the movie and some more melodic sound bytes as well. Then put these two guys in the room with the synth and BAM! - magic happens. If you haven't seen the trailer - watch it here. Then go see Cyrus, it's certifiably hilarious!
Watch the Interweb Mashup video for the Duplass Brothers' Cyrus:
Cyrus is both written and directed by indie filmmakers and brothers Jay and Mark Duplass, who directed The Puffy Chair and Baghead previously as well as a number of shorts. This was shot using mostly improv with a basic story structure and some dialogue for a screenplay. The film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year, which is where we caught up with Mark and Jay for an interview. Fox Searchlight, who has a partnership with the Duplass Brothers, is bringing Cyrus to limited theaters starting on June 18th and will expand throughout the summer.
