A Note From The Dudes
Hi everyone. It's us, The Dudes. First off, we just wanted to say hi. Next, we're sorry we've been so MIA as of recently. It basically went like this: We did the last episode of the '05-'06 SNL season on May 20th, then flew to Vancouver to re-write a movie entitled "Hot Rod". We started shooting it on July 24th, wrapped on Sept 23, flew back to NY on the 24th and started the new season SNL on the 25th.
Shooting the movie was very fun and very crazy and surreal. Paramount and the producers were surprisingly cool about all the weirder stuff we wanted to do, they let us shoot a lot of very silly stuff, which was cool. Sissy Spacek and Ian McShane play Jorm and Andy's parents, which is very cool. Danny McBride, Bill Hader and Isla Fisher play their friends/love interests, which is very very cool. And Kiv got to direct the whole thing, which was crazy/cool (/sexy TLC ya'll!). (Also, Chris Parnell, Will Arnett, and the rock and roll band GOWN (Queens Of The Stone Age? get details here) all did scenes, which was cool as shit.)
In any case, we apologize for our past, current and future absence. And we will do our best in the future to actually make something of value to post. After the next two SNL episodes, we will start editing the movie on all breaks from the show, so that will eat up most of our time. But hopefully the movie is kick-ass and makes it all worth it. But even if it sucks, at least we got to make a movie, which is pretty effing rad!
Loveways and forever,
PS: Here are some pictures.
