Video of the Day II

Trey Parker and Matt Stone on The Book Of Mormon:


Some interesting points:
  1. Jon Stewart points out that this is the first time he's been able to hold up a Playbill as the promo item. Although Mary Poppins was on Conan's Tonight Show, and Fela was on Stephen Colbert, it's interesting to note.
  2. Trey Parker & Matt Stone note resistance to the musical in film (which is odd, considering the increasing success of musical movies).
  3. Trey Parker & Matt Stone also say they were treated with suspicion -- particularly because of the expectation that it wouldn't uphold "real musicals". Must not have seen Cannibal! The Musical.
