Comedian Mike O’Brien’s Above Average web series 7 Minutes in Heaven has long been a treasure trove of awkward comedy, but his latest episode, with former Saturday Night Live comrade Will Forte, might take the cake. Things started off well enough, with O’Brien convincing Forte to stage an argument between his quiet-voiced SNL characters Tim Calhoun and Hamilton. After that, O’Brien asked Forte about his farts — specifically, does he fart too much for a man of his age?
“I just fart a lot. I don’t know what it is,” Forte said. “I think it might just be my family makeup, the genes I was given. Einstein, somehow with his parents, developed this brain that was able to figure s–t out. And I developed an intestinal system that’s able to push out mass quantities of gas.”
When O’Brien asked Forte to read a poem in the voice of AC/DC, he chose to do it with a Joni Mitchell impression instead. But things really ramped up when Forte agreed to do a rendition of O’Brien’s three-second play, Insane Shirtless Men Covered in Ketchup, Screaming. True to its title, the two men took their shirts off, covered themselves in ketchup, and screamed for three seconds. They then continued the remainder of the interview like that.
