Jean-Ralphio is the Amazing Spiderman
The wonderful people at CollegeHumor edited this together at breakneck speed after so many people tweeted/posted about Jean-Ralphio kinda looking like the Amazing Spiderman. To those editors I say kudos and thank you. To everyone else I say enjoy the trailer now as it will inevitably be taken down for breaking 1000 copyright laws.
I got run over by a Leeeexuuuusss!
I would pay to see this in the theater.
If you ask Jean-Ralphio to pick up a girl, he just goes in there and says the silliest thing he can, that he thinks is the most confident thing. This other guy, all his decisions are made based on previous things he’s done. He’s like, “Okay, I’m going to pick up this woman, and I’m going to use these three lines, and if they don’t work, fuck it, I’m gonna go to someone else.” Jean-Ralphio would go, “Oh my God, I fuckin’ nailed it.” “What did she say?” “She said no, but she’s gonna come back.” Even when he loses all of his business [Entertainment 720] except for $5,000, he’s like “Can you believe we have $5,000 left?!” Jean-Ralphio is an exaggeration of that optimistic douchebaggy friend you have. I think he’s kind of loveable; I try to make him loveable so you root for him. Literally, my goal is that when he does something stupid, you go [sweetly], “Oh, Jean-Ralphio!” Like a little kid who made a mistake. “You got your head stuck in the honey jar again, Jean-Ralphio!
Okay, I can’t really talk about it a lot, but I’ll tell you my script revolves around the star of a telenovela that becomes crazier than the insane telenovela that she’s starring in. She always wanted to be a Hollywood actress — she doesn’t want to be a telenovela actress anymore — so while she’s trying to break into Hollywood, her life explodes. It’s a reimagining.

And just when I thought it wasn’t possible to love Ben Schwartz more, I discovered this adorable little section while listening Who Charted? as I fulfilled those of my work duties which require little in the way of attention or finesse.
WHAT. Too much awesomeness.
