Brace yourself for the sheer audio madness that is actor Will Forte. I made this supercut for Vulture and I think you'll love it.
See just how red the SNL alum has made his face over the years.

it seems silly that google+ doesn't interact with your computer's camera and allow you to upload photos/video directly from it.

I shared this with a guy I know who works at Google specifically on G+. Maybe he'll fix it!

trying out the video functionality! here's an interview i did with beck in 2006, edited in a comically rapidfire "MTV" style! also, i was fat!

first 30 seconds are color bars, followed by ridiculous commercials i did for the thing, and the actual piece is at 01:09. enjoy! or don't!

The really old looking computer with the very not-flat screen monitor totally makes this ad for me.
