A little while back, we posted about the Judd Apatow-helmed, Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen-starring Funny People featuring fake films within the film.  Well, one of those fakes has found its way to the ‘nets early.  It’s Jason Schwartzman as actor Mark Taylor Jackson, starring in his own NBC sitcom, "Yo, Teach!"  Imagine "Head of the Class," but with wisecracking city kids instead of precocious geniuses, and with internet comic sensation Bo Burnham appearing as an "F" student who raps to cope with his insecurities.

It’s damn funny stuff, and Apatow nails the tone of all those one-liner-laden sitcoms that still dealt with "the issues" of the day… you know… shows like "Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper" and… every other show on NBC from 1987-2001. 

This bodes well for the rest of the film, I’d say.  The filmmakers even went so far as to shoot an EPK for the show, which you can watch after the jump.  It might be the first EPK worth watching in the history of EPKs.
