You Guys, We Should Chew More Gum!

Jason Bateman and Will Arnett have started a new company, like a couple of Mr. Managers, called dumbdumb. It is sort of like FunnyOrDie, I guess, but all of the “viral videos” they make will have advertising built right into them. Clever girl. The first video to follow this model is after the jump. It features Jason and Will, as well as Aubrey Plaza and Rachel Harris, and it is basically a five minute long ad for chewing gum. But the thing is, it’s actually really funny? So basically they have started an entire company to make so many Zach Galifianakis Absolut ads. Fair enough. Zach Galifianakis Absolut ads are the best ads!

It’s kind of weird, right? But then again, everything is basically designed to sell you something, so it might as well just be honest about it. There is always money in trying to sell the banana stand. (Via TheDailyWhat.)
