Fred Armisen is Spending His ‘SNL’ Time Off Seriously

In honor of Fred’s project, I’m going to write this post real serious-like. SNL has been on break for just a week but Fred Armisen is already looking to fill up his free time and fill it up seriously. “Be Serious for 30 Seconds” is a project that asks the video making public to be serious for 30 seconds. The instructions are after the jump and are pretty simple. Well, except rule 1, “It has to be serious.” [Cutaway to a Keurig machine] Despite Fred imploring people to not try to be funny [5 second dramatic pause…], that is the only thing people are doing. How dare they!!!! This is serious!!!!!!! [Door slam]

Rule 1: It has to be serious.

Rule 2: It has to be 30 seconds or less

Rule 3: No more than 2 people in it

Rule 4: At least 1 5 second dramatic pause

Rule 5: At least 1 cutaway to an object

Rule 6: Do your best acting

Rule 7: It needs to have a door slamming
