Funny or Die has joined the 50 Shades of Grey parody party– and it comes in the form of a sketch called 50 Shades of Blue, starring pop star and actress Selena Gomez, who has set her sights on a disgusting house painter, played by comedian and The League co-star Nick Kroll. The only way this video works is that it makes innocent Gomez the creep with the internal monologue– and not Kroll.
The pairing of Gomez and Kroll is a little bizarre — not because he’s playing a sweaty, pimply dude, with whooping cough — but more because Gomez is 19 and has a round little baby face. So, yeah, the casting weirds me out but at the same time, I get that a bunch of tweens wearing copious amounts of flavored lipgloss are going to watch and tweet the video because of Gomez. Do tweens even know what 50 Shades of Grey is? Are young girls sneaking their mother’s copy of the book into their rooms when their parents aren’t home– much like how I got a thrill from sneaking peeks at the word ‘sex’ in the dictionary when I was 10? I have no idea.
You can watch the hot vid below. Yeah, it’s SFW.
