It pains us to bring you this fun bit of trivia because for whatever reason video of this event was never aired and is not online, though there are images that prove its existence and two of its stars are in a movie that comes out this weekend called Admission, which makes this all the more topical. Those stars would be Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, who first met back in 2004 while taping a lost (but insanely awesome-sounding) VH1 show called Soundtracks Live, based on the UCB Theatre show where a group of up-and-comers reenact popular movies with live music.
Rudd and Fey were both in the reenactment of Sixteen Candles, and there were also shows for Pretty in Pink and Fast Times at Ridgemont High. The assortment of names featured in this thing is pretty astounding -- keeping in mind that many of them were just breaking through to mainstream success at the time (both Anchorman and Mean Girls debuted that same year, solidifying Rudd and Fey as major talents, even though the former had been around awhile). Others who participated in these musical reenactments include Amy Poehler (who cocreated the UCB show with Amy Miles), Will Arnett, Jon Glaser, Ken Marino, Fred Armisen, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph... and pretty much everyone who's made you laugh on the big (and small) screen over the past 10 years.
You can scope out a bunch of images from the Sixteen Candles taping here, and then you should promptly begin writing letters to VH1 to get it to air this thing because it is something that desperately needs to be seen. [via AV Club]
