The shot cuts to closeup of Brett Gelman with a creepy smile on his face. The shot cuts back to Ed Helms who looks disturbed. The shot cuts back to Brett Gelman. Brett Gelman: Well, well, well. If it isn't my favorite comedic actor, superstar Ed Helms. Ed Helms: Hi. How's it going? Ed Helms sits down and Brett Gelman sits down next to him. Brett Gelman: What are you doing here? I hope you didn't have an overdose from having too much talent. Ed Helms: I don't mean to be rude. I'm just a little out of sorts. I was just mountain biking with my buddy and he crashed and hit his head on a rock. It was pretty scary. Brett Gelman: I'll tell you what's scary. How hungover I am right now from The Hangover. That's right. Last night, I watched The Hangover so many times that I got drunk on The Hangover. And now, I've got a hangover, or should I say a Hangover hangover. You've got the goods, Mr. Helms. And your Evan Almighty talents are a Daily Show to wash all over the whole world like a Cedar Rapids and help us escape our everyday problems just like Harold and Kumar's Escape from Guantanamo Bay. Bay, be, yeah. Brett Gelman snaps along with the last few words. A doctor approaches Brett Gelman and Ed Helms. Doctor: Mr. Celebrity? Brett Gelman: Yeah. Doctor: We did everything we could, but we lost her. Brett Gelman: It's okay, doc. Don't worry about it. I'm sure you did the best you could. Thanks. Ed Helms looks at Brett Gelman expectantly. Brett Gelman: Well, it's been a pleasure meeting you Mr. Helms. You made this the best day of my life. Ed Helms: Wait. What was the doctor talking about? Who did they lose? Brett Gelman: He was just talking about my wife. Ed Helms: What? Brett Gelman: We were in a terrible car accident that, apparently, she didn't live through. Ed Helms: Oh my God. You're in shock. Brett Gelman: Nah. Ed Helms: You're stricken with grief! Brett Gelman: No. Ed Helms: You have to deal with this. Brett Gelman: I do need to deal with it, but going home and popping in Season 2 of The Office on DVD. Oh boy, I'm going to laugh my tears away. Brett Gelman stops moving and begins staring off into space. Ed Helms watches Brett Gelman for a moment and leans in toward Brett Gelman's face. Brett Gelman burst back into his former animated self. Brett Gelman: Yeah? Ed Helms: The doctor just told you that your wife is dead! Brett Gelman: Isn't it funny? I loved you and my wife hated you. Now she's dead and I don't have a scratch. It seems like God came firmly down on the side of Ed Helms. Congrats, sir. Con (finger snap) grats (finger snap), yeah. Ed Helms just stares of Brett Gelman for a moment before Brett Gelman lurches out a door onto the street. The doctor comes up to Ed Helms. Doctor: Mr. Helms? Ed Helms: Yeah. Doctor: I'm sorry. We did everything we could, but your friend did not make it. Ed Helms: What? Doctor: Am I a good doctor? Hmmmm. The doctor gives Ed Helms a suspicious look and walks away. Ed Helms starts to cry and then sits up straight. Ed Helms: Wait a minute. I wasn't even in Season 2 of The Office. The following words appear: Mr. Celebrity. The video ends.
