Paul Rudd and Jason Segel Reprise ‘I Love You Man’ Roles for Funny or Die

I’ve often heard that the last genre to be invented was the Mockumentary, but recent years may have added an addendum to that with the rise of the Bromance. Fans of the hetero man-love genre will certainly remember Paul Rudd and Jason Segel’s characters Peter and Sydney from the 2009 comedy I Love You Man and their extreme fandom of the band “Rush”. Well, thanks to the rise of high-end video content on the Internet we’re able to relive all of their most repeated catch phrases without having to wait for an actual sequel. In this short the two BFFs share a scene with the guys from “Rush” depicting an awkward back stage interaction at one of their shows. While I was pretty charmed by Neil Peart’s acting, I personally had to hit the “Die” button due to the dearth of original jokes.

But for all of those people who like to relive the familiar and flock out to the theaters in droves for sequels, this may be a real treat.
