These days you have to get a little inventive when promoting your small festival-born indie movies, and the folks behind Somebody Up There Likes Me did just that by releasing this odd little video featuring Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally and Alison Brie sitting on a bed, smoking weed and chatting about the movie. Offerman and Mullally are actually in the film, which premiered at SXSW earlier this year and hits theaters in March courtesy of Tribeca Films, but Brie is not ... so we're not sure why she's even there. Even so, that kinda makes the whole thing weirder and funnier.
Note: Video contains profanity and drug use and may be NSFW
We dug the movie out of SXSW, mentioning it a few times during our coverage. It stars Keith Poulson as a divorcee who plunges back into the dating pool with help from his scene-stealing buddy, played by Offerman. Our friends at Slackerwood said this about it: "...the story's 35-year story arc includes hookups, breakups, business successes and personal failures to balance them, philosophical discussions, a running gag involving malapropisms and misunderstandings, and even a magical suitcase. Some of what happens makes little sense (okay, no sense at all) in our world, but perfect sense in Byington's cinematic world."
Look for Somebody Up There Likes Me in March 2013. Hopefully Offerman and his cronies will put out more videos like this leading up to release.
