Michael Cera's Week In Cameos Serves as Bizarre Pop Culture Time Capsule For Future Generations



Yes, Michael Cera has a movie coming out Friday. This is the logical reason behind much of the quirky press he's been doing in the last week or so. But if you simply write it off as token publicity, you deny yourself the true beauty of the whole ordeal.We speak of two things in particular: the footage of Cera hanging out with the cast of MTV's Jersey Shore in New York City and his appearance in Islands' new music video for "No You Don't." The former is basically exactly what you'd expect out of a combo press promo. There is pizza, dancing and a delightful video of Cera receiving a poof haircut from a fella named DJ Pauly D. The latter (which can be seen below) is an ironic anti-drug PSA where Cera trips his way through suburban parking lots, a marriage of indie rock and hallucinogenics that would surely make the directors of the "Electric Feel" video proud. When linked together, the two clips might be the best hope future civilizations have for comprehending the brief time in which MGMT, slim slacks and dudes unironically referring to themselves as "The Situation" ruled the world. Video jump!
