With Spike Jonze's Her being among the most acclaimed and awarded movies of 2013, it is no surprise that the film has earned numerous parodies on the Internet. But this one may be one of the oddest and, eventually, best the film has gotten yet.
Although there was already the Jonah Hill parody Me on Saturday Night Live and the Philip Seymour Hoffman-dubbed/HAL 9000 mash-up that Indiewire pointedout, this one, features clips from the film's trailer with the character Dr. Steve Brule, played by John C. Reilly, on Adult Swim's Check it Out with Dr. Steve Brule. It is one of the most unusual and most inspired parodies of the film to date.
While one would not expect so, Reilly's character's unusual characteristics make for oddly perfect retorts for Phoenix's exuberant feelings of love and, therefore, make for humor as funny in a nontraditional way as the show.
The fake trailer also has the approval of the Check it Out with Dr. Steve Brule co-creator Tim Heidecker, who tweeted the following:
