Tim and Eric Made a Totino's Pizza Roll Commercial That's Hardcore Punk Rock

Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim have been on a roll in the advertising world lately. Back in September they directed a commercial for a GE lightbulb starring a hot tub-lounging Jeff Goldblum, and now they're back with a new ad for Totino's Pizza Rolls that's bizarre enough to make you switch from Gino's Pizza Rolls out of curiosity alone.

Tim Heidecker Is Very Unhappy with JASH's New Changes

Comedy collective JASH recently decided to make some very minimal changes to their company logo, but as you can see in their latest video, Tim Heidecker is having none of it. Hopefully Sarah Silverman, Eric Wareheim, Reggie Watts, and Michael Cera aka "The Four Horsemen" can find some way to mend the rift here, but unless it involves returning to the single-circle JASH design, it looks like the creative differences might be too much for Heidecker to come back.

Jeff Goldblum Stars in the Best Lightbulb Infomercial Ever Directed by Tim and Eric

It's not often that a mega corporation like GE can pull off an ad that's funnier than it is shameless, but this new spot directed by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim has got to be the most worthwhile lightbulb commercial ever made. It stars Jeff Goldblum as super successful and well-lit celebrity Terry Quattro, and if the thought of Goldblum playing the piano from the comfort of his hot tub excites you, the above spot will not let you down.

Tim Heidecker Says 'Tim and Eric's Bedtime Stories' Is a Reflection of Our "Shit Culture"

"Once we started making the show, and we saw what we were actually doing, I sort of thought, Well, this show is not going to make you feel good. And we shouldn’t be feeling good! We’re shit people. We’re a shit culture. This is like punishment for being horrible. There’s so much feel-good stuff that comes out, especially in comedy now, where things are very cute and very clever and sort of like everybody’s in on the joke and winking. I feel like our show tends to try to be like a little more reminding of how awful things really are in the world."
