The Cast Dishes on Bad Internet (Behind the Scenes)


♪♪ ♪♪ WOMAN:Uh, what can I say
about Zac?
He’s a really
funny drunk.
[laughter]Like, a really
good-natured drunk. When I see him
and he’s too drunk, it makes me still
wanna drink,even though I know
he’s too drunk.
[laughs]
Yeah.Most other people,
if I see them drunk,
I’m like, “Oh, I don’t
wanna get like that,”
but then Zac’s such a
chill, cool drunk
that I’m like,
“Yeah, bring it on. – Yeah.
– “Bring on the whiskey.” He gets really Southern
when he’s drunk.Uh, I came up
in New York
watching Emily perform,
uh, do improv. Um, and she was
so funny, And then I came
out here, and I started working
with her. I didn’t work
with her much, uh,but anytime I do,I’d say, “Oh, she’s
not that funny,” [laughter] I feel like this
question is, like, gonna be like–
I feel like Emily said something crazy
in her interview – Yeah, yeah.
– …that we’re responding to.Um, but, Emily,
who I’ve worked with
for a couple years,um, doing sketch
here is now working on her own pilot
and she is wonderfuland hilarious
in her episode.
I was joking before. Emily is very funny. And I was joking before. She’s truly a monster.Mike Trapp is the wor–
No, Mike is the–
It’s, like, I feel like
such an idiot in trying
to describe him. He’s, like, the
smartest writer – I know.
– Yeah. – He’s really clever,
– Yeah. which really annoys me
’cause I’m supposedto be the clever one,but he’s much cleverer
than me.
Don’t tell him
I said that.
I don’t think anyone
was like,
“Siobhan’s the
clever one.” [laughs] Shut up. – No.
– My mom said I was
the clever one. ZAC: But, like, he, like,he’s such a fast
and, like, funny
and smart writer
that, like,

Yeah.it makes me feel stupid
to be around him. [laughter]Like, it’s–
Writing is such
– a labored process
for me.
– Yeah.
God, he just does
his work. I don’t know how
he does it. He’s the only writer
that I know that is like,
“Right, I’m gonna go “write a sketch.” Maybe he was meant
to be a writer and we’re just pretending
to be it. – Oh, no.
– Oh, no. Don’t tell anyone.Brian Murphy
stole my look.
There can only be
one gangly Irishman – with glasses.
– [laughs] So, he said,
“That guy knows “his business.” Yeah, um, we wrote
these episodes right as the cast
was flipping over and, um, Murph
actually left a little before
we started writing these, so it was really great
to be able to get him back
into the roombecause it was this
sort of, like,
“Oh, Murph’s gone,
I miss Murph.”
So, having this
opportunity
to get him back
in the cast
and, uh, just see
him on camera again–
Can I ask you
a question? Yeah. Who do you think
is better-looking, me or Murph? Uh, Murph, for sure. Um, I find you a
very sad man, and I think that
sadness comes through a lot, yeah, yeah. – Look a little more joyful?
– Yeah, yeah. The, it’s– You can see the
inner beauty, um, but also the outer
beauty is better, too. – Brian Murphy?
– [laughter] –Uh, Siobhan is great.
Siobhan’s great.She was, uh– I know she was very
excited about doing the, um, the gun fight
in the, uh, YouTube battle scene. [laughter] – She was, she was–
– [laughter] She’s groaning
in the back. She thought she
was so cooland then she saw
clips of herself
and she was like,
“Oh, no, I’m not.
“I don’t look cool.” Oh, we don’t have
guns in my country. [laughter] So, Siobhan doesn’t
know how to use a fake gun,
so I’m excited to see that on camera. – Yeah.
– It’s really embarrassing. [laughter] Yeah, I hope it is
embarrassing. That will be funnier. Watching Siobhan
out of her element is probably
my favorite thing. [chuckles] –Grant, uh–
Grant is a sociopath.No, what?
[laughter]He’s certainly
the tallest writer. He’s very tall. And he’s right behind us. – And…
– We were wearing– “Nice” is the
wrong word. “Good”? No. Uh… ZAC:Just sort of,
like,
you know that he
is hiding that
– he did something wrong,
usually.
– Yeah.
– Um–
– But not very well
because he loves
to tell secrets. Yes. Um… just a real liability,
uh… and… What’s up? What are you guys
talking about? – Nothing.
– Just, like, the Internet. – “Bad Internet.”
– Stuff that’s on
the Internet. – We’re doing the
“Bad Internet” thing.
– Yeah. – Oh.
– So, if you could
just go that way. How’s it going? – Pretty good.
– It’s good. – It’s good.
– Great, great. We’re actually on camera
right now. Yeah, so if you could
get out of here… They don’t want me
on camera? Well, I think that
might be, like, – a later thing.
– Yeah. – So, yeah, just…
– Ah. Yeah, I bet they
want me on camera. Cool. – See ya, dude.
– Bye. [mouthing] [softly]
Crazy. – Crazy.
– Why would you do that,
you know? Why would you
do that? Where were we? [coughs] Anyway, Grant’s a real
piece of [bleep]. Yeah, he’s probably
murdered, like, five people. ♪♪Jean Smart was great.She, um, she was
really funny
and really game
and, um,
I know she did some
of her own stunts. There was one part
where we had to have, um–
The president walks up on
a chair and falls off and she lands
on a desk really hard and then rolls off. And we brought in
a great stuntwoman, who came in
and nailed it. And then we had to do
a close-up of the stunt right before and
we were working really hard with
the director– Tim Wilkerson, uh,
was trying to figure out, “Okay,
how can we just “get this shot and then
cut really quickly?” Jean was just supposed
to kind of walk up, but she insisted that she wanted to do it
for real, so then we had
to do it again with Jean, um,
and, you know, just keep a straight
face and everything, even though we were
very concerned. She just gets up–
She says, “Guys, I’m gonna
be fine.”And she gets up
on a chair
and she just falls
over a desk.
Uh, and it looks
awesome.
And, uh, she got
really hurt. No, she didn’t,
she was fine. – [laughs]
– She was fine. She climbed up
on the chair in heels and flopped back
and did a big pro-wrestler power slam
on herself and, yeah, she was,
uh– It was pretty impressive. ♪♪ They’re all
incredibly funny. There’s still something
about the premise of “Which of the friends
in ‘Friends’ are you?” that makes me so,
uh, delighted. Favorite episode… We’re not allowed
to say our own. BOTH: So… Of course, my favorite
episodeis “Which of the friends
from ‘Friends’ you would be.”
SIOBHAN:Yes, yes, yes, yes.
That’s my episode.
ZAC:And what’s your
favorite episode?
My episode is definitely
the POTUS one. – No, uh…
– God. Uh, no, I think
they’re all really good. It was nice to, like,
to feel like they were all good
and that they were all
very different. – Yes.
– Like, all the tones,they all, like,
explored things
in different ways
and, like,
to places in
different worlds.
And so that–It’s hard to pick
a favorite ’cause – they’re all pretty unique.
– They’re all very different. – Yeah.
– Yeah. I’m gonna say
the one I was in,the two that
I were in:
“President of the
United States Goes Viral”
and the one where
we’re in kind of
the YouTube
“Hunger Games.”
– I tend–
– “The YouTube Games”?
Is that a– I tend to prefer
“Year-long Ad,”um, ’cause I was
in it. [laughs]
I didn’t like
that one. It’s not one
of my favorites. Mmm, I just feel
like “President Goes Viral”
is, like, a little… Good? A little…
[laughs] Really good? Well-acted?
Jean Smart was in it. I feel like there was
a couple– She was great. I feel like there was
a character or two in there that, like,
we didn’t need. – You know?
– Yeah. Just like a few extras
in the background? A few too many? – Yeah.
– Yeah. But, like, the
principal cast – was on-point.
– I think Jean Smart
was great. Uh-huh, right. – I think she was–
– Mmm-hmm? She had to work
overtime to make you
look good. Jean Smart, Brian Murphy,
Grant… Yeah, Jean Smart carrying
on her shoulders Brian Murphy. Uh… I think my favorite
episode might be, um, uh, “Year-long Ad.”When you go online,
you’re confronted
with that option of:do you want to just
get a couple ads
here and there?
Like normal television. It’s fine, it’s everything
you’re used to. Or you can watch one
big-ass ad – at the beginning.
– Ooh. And you won’t have
to deal with it for the rest
of the time. And Pat just took that
to the nth degree and imagined a world
where, if you watch one ad
for a full year nonstop, you could then
never see an ad again for the rest
of your life. Would you do it? Would you do the
year-long ad? Do it for a year?
No. But what I love
about the idea is, like, it’s like, it’s a
purely insane idea. It’s a crazy thing
to do for a year, but there is that
half-moment you go, “Never again?” – “Never?”
– “Never?” – “No ads?”
– “To never see one?” “Is it worth it?” Like, crazy,
clearly crazy. No, of course,
of course. What’s gonna happen
to my body? After a year?
It’d be awful. – You’ll be–
– But… – But, ever?
– Ever? Gosh, my favorite
episode– You know, I’m tempted to say
with all the writers sitting behind me
thatyou couldn’t possibly
pick a favorite episode
of this series.OFF-CAMERA: But you have to! – [laughing]
– Yeah, just one. Which one is
your favorite, Sam? [laughter] Um… Is it mine? [laughing] OFF-CAMERA: Which one’s
your least favorite? SIOBHAN: Oh, yeah, which one’s
your least favorite? OFF-CAMERA: We can accept
that, too. I–Yeah, I could
so easily– Why didn’t you
green-light some of the ones we wrote? Yeah, let’s talk about
the ones I didn’t green-light. And why. Um, it’d be so easy
to turn this – into a joke.
– [laughter] There are two
episodes – that really don’t work.
– [laughter] Watch them
for yourself to find out which. ♪♪ ♪♪
