One of the most fascinating developments of the last several years is that Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, better known as Tim & Eric, have become reliably employable advertising directors as a sideline gig in between all the weird, experimental comedy they produce online and for Adult Swim. The latest example of this phenomenon is Pizza Freaks Unite, a commercial for Totino’s Pizza Rolls directed by and starring Tim & Eric.
The Pizza Freaks Unite Totino’s Pizza Rolls ad is kind of a back-to-basics return to form for Tim & Eric, who have moved on from doing the kind of hallucinogenic stuff they used to do on their own Awesome Show that’s being practiced here. But it’s still three minutes of pure T&E insanity, and it’s fun to imagine them cashing the check they got from Totino’s for it.
You can watch Pizza Freaks Unite by Tim & Eric below. And it’s all part of a funny campaign by Totino’s that implores consumers to “Live the Totino’s life,” which you can do here.
Here’s the commercial:
