It's Not Sam Raimi's Birthday!

It’s the summer, and the viral video people are still on a break (although, I heard that hh has something excellent in the works), which means that the best we can offer tonight is James Franco and Bill Hader screwing around unscripted, in honor of Sam Rami’s birthday. Which is fine. And it’s even a little funny, mostly because Bill Hader doesn’t know how not to be funny. But here’s the problem I have with this video. It’s not the fact that there’s no Spider-Man 4, so the entire conversation here between Franco and Hader’s Willem Dafoe is null. Nor is it that James Franco can’t help but laugh at the few lines that inadvertently land. It’s this: It’s not Sam Raimi’s Birthday. It’s not even close to Sam Raimi’s birthday.

So what the fuck is going on here?

Happy Birthday Sam Raimi from James Franco from James Franco
