1

♫ (music) ♫

2

Voiceover: Basketball.

3

The perfect combination of man and ball.

4

But what is a basketball player

5

when he is locked out from the
very game that defines him?

6

One man. One website.
One un-paid internship.

7

Off the court, in the office.

8

This is 24/7, Blake Griffin, Intern.

9

♫ (music) ♫

10

Voiceover: It's the Monday morning meeting

11

with yet another dog.

12

Blake Griffin's career in conflict.

13

(everyone chattering)

14

Lead Man: Guys, let's settle up.

15

Bottom line we need clicks, guys.

16

We don't have enough clicks,

17

so I need to hear everybody's
ideas on boobs and kittens.

18

(laughter)

19

Excuse me, did I say something funny?

20

Comedy is serious business, man.

21

So, you need to get your head in the game.

22

All right, let's think of
words that rhyme with Dick.

23

Let's go.

24

Voiceover: As his first day continues,

25

the NBA's Rookie of the Year finds

26

being a Funny or Die rookie
a much greater challenge.

27

Assistant: So, this is a phone.

28

Blake: Yeah, man. I know how to work it.

29

Assistant: Okay, so you're gonna
pick up this piece right here

30

and then you're going to answer the phone.

31

See how I'm answering the phone?

32

Okay and you listen here
and you talk here. Okay?

33

Blake: Yeah.

34

Assistant: Okay.

35

(copy machine noise)

36

Man: Intern!

37

Blake: What's up?

38

Man: I always think of
the best comedy ideas

39

when I'm on the move, when I'm pacing.

40

Blake: So?

41

Okay. There we go. There we go.

42

Hey man, here's the 6 foot
Subway sub we ordered.

43

Man 2: Did you measure it
to make sure it's 6 feet?

44

Blake: No.

45

Man 2: Oh, come on, man.

46

Okay, checks out.

47

Blake: You know I thought Funny or Die,

48

like internship, it's gonna be like

49

a whole bunch of funny people,

50

like comedy stuff going on non-stop,

51

but so far they've just been dicks.

52

I made a pot of coffee and
one of the guys came in

53

and drank some, made this face

54

and poured it all over the
ground right in front of me

55

and then told me to clean it up.

56

Man 3: Clean up the mess you made.

57

♫ (sad music) ♫

58

Blake: But it's cool. It's a start.

59

You know you got to start somewhere.

60

All I know is I got a great sketch

61

and I hope I can pitch it to somebody.

62

Voiceover: As Griffin struggles

63

with the very basics of interning,

64

the decision comes down
from the higher ups

65

that he must focus on his fundamentals.

66

Director: Action, go!

67

Actor: Who ordered the fart sandwich?

68

Director: Cut! Hey stretch,

69

can we get that light steady please?

70

Blake: Yeah, aren't you supposed to use

71

a C stand for this?

72

Director: Go again, one more time.

73

Hold the fart sandwich higher

74

and get it all out quicker. Thank you.

75

All right. Let's go again.

76

Blake: Just hold on. Will
you hold this for me?

77

Director: Why would I hold it?
I'm thinking about the shots

78

and how the scene is gonna go.

79

You're gonna have to get
somebody else in here

80

to do it and maybe you
can go do something else.

81

Maybe you can scrub toilets or take things

82

out of the garbage.

83

Voiceover: Ostracized, alone.

84

Griffin begins to retreat into himself.

85

Blake: I hate it here, mom.

86

I don't think I'll ever be
able to shoot my sketch.

87

Mom: Don't give up, Blakey-Boo.

88

Remember when you were worried

89

that you couldn't dunk over a car.

90

Then what happened?

91

Blake: I did dunk over that car.

92

Voiceover: After a punishing
day of menial tasks,

93

Griffin is summoned to
deliver important documents

94

to the big Kahuna himself.

95

Will: Excuse me, Mr. Ferrell.

96

Blake: Hey, yes.

97

Blake: Hey, how you doing man?

98

Will: I'm good. I'm good.

99

Blake: Great to see you.

100

They told me to come by and drop this off.

101

They told me to bring that to you.

102

Will: Ha, ha, ha.

103

Blake: Yeah.

104

Will: Great.

105

Blake: Funny, yeah.

106

Will: Thank you.

107

Blake: Hey, while I've got you here, um.

108

Will: I'm in a little bit of a hurry.

109

Blake: I've been writing a script. Um.

110

Will: Please, I don't have time.

111

I can't look at that unless it's,

112

it's got to go through
the proper channels.

113

Blake: Let me just read
a few things in here.

114

Will: Nope.

115

Blake: Oh, can I just put
it in your house somewhere?

116

Will: No, I want you to
just keep it in your hand.

117

Blake: Hey, I just ...
thanks for the opportunity.

118

Will: Sure.

119

Blake: All right.

120

Actually, no. You know what?

121

My time at Funny or Die has
been really, really shitty.

122

I thought it was going to be
good, but it's been shitty.

123

You are kind of the ring leader of it all

124

so (bleep) you, Will Ferrell.

125

(bleep) you, all right?

126

♫ (music) ♫

127

Will: I like your style.

128

Blake: Thank you. I appreciate that.

129

Will: You got moxy, okay.

130

Blake: I appreciate that.

131

Will: I'd love to grab that script.

132

Blake: I just figured maybe you

133

could take a look at it.

134

Will: No, because I want to make this now.

135

Okay, because of what you showed me.

136

Voiceover: Success, when
everything is on the line.

137

That is the mark of a champion

138

and it's the mark Blake Griffin

139

exhibits in everything he does.
