I think I like Dave Franco. His humor is completely toilet-based, which is not my thing. However it’s so out-of-left-field obscene, that it’s almost too funny not to laugh at.
BULLETT Magazine sat down with the comedian at a cafe in West Hollywood, who took an improv cue to blurt out the most surreal thing he could thing of over: “Giraffes ejaculating.”
Yup. He said it. Just as the waitress put down a plate of eggs in front of him, in fact.
Franco grew up as the youngest of three boys in Palo Alto, perhaps a little too fast. Older brothers Tom and James (Franco. You might know him) taught the young whipper snapper certain things “sooner” than he “should have known about them.”
Though we’ve only seen him in a handfull of roles (Superbad, 21 Jump Street), Franco stars next in Warm Bodies and and Now You See Me, which boasts an all-star line-up, including Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine, Woody Harrelson and Morgan Freeman.
Neither Franco nor his buddies could believe he landed himself in such great company “My friends were like, ‘How the fuck did you sneak into that role?’”
Franco has had enormous success with videos on Funny or Die, most notably the skits Sexual Chicken and another involving an ex-girlfriend’s suggestion to “go f*ck” himself. Which he did.
“I give the special effects guy so much credit, because my initial idea was to just find a guy who looks like me and film the back of his head,” he said. “But to superimpose my head on somebody else’s body makes the whole thing unique.”
Franco’s next skit is more of a short-film version of “Would You Rather?” And yes, it is obscene.
“Once you make the decision of which route you’re going to take, there’s a weird effect where you’re now in this dream of it actually happening,” he explained.
“Would you rather watch as your dad f*cks your mom doggy-style and never break eye contact with either of them the whole time, or jerk off to a picture of your mom while she watches you do it?”
Meanwhile, there are some smoldering pics to oogle over.
