Steve Coogan in Hamlet 2

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I am all smitten with Hamlet 2, the comedy that took home the big prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. And no, it didn’t win any awards — it took home the biggest distribution deal of any film, a reported $10 million dollars. At that point we were left wondering why it sold for so much, but now we know — it is absolutely hilarious. Steve Coogan delivers a ridiculous performance as Dana Marschz, a washed up commercial actor turned high school drama teacher who conjures up a sequel to the tragedy “Hamlet.” The only problem: he conjures up Satan french-kissing the President and a musical interlude called “Rock Me Sexy Jesus.”

And if that description doesn’t give you any insight into the shenanigans at hand in Hamlet 2, perhaps you should check out the following video clips, which were sent over to us by the fine folks at Focus Features this afternoon. These are three commercials that star Dana Marschz, advertising for a personal massager, a commercial power-juicer and even herpes medication. Check them out below.
