After 2 Million “Rush” Jokes, Segel And Rudd Are Allowed To Meet The Band

Watching I Love You, Man, which was released in Russia under the title Two Closeted Gay Men Talk About Rush, really makes you wonder: what would happen if these two characters who won’t shut up about Rush finally meet Rush? Now Funny Or Die has given us the answer. Paul Rudd and Jason Segel‘s characters from the film meet their 80s band super-idols in this viral video quasi-sequel, which will hopefully serve as the actual sequel.

In the video, Segel gets Rudd backstage passes to the local Rush concert and backstage shenanigans occur. A sandwich is eaten peculiarly, there’s some mandatory ‘awkward tension’ and an admittedly cool-looking double guitar plays a key role. Also, some bittersweet news: “totes magotes” is spoken in the video, but not “Dude Von Dudenstein,” “Sweet Sweet Hangin,” and sadly, not one squiznot was popped for the entire 5:50 minutes. All you squiznot poppers out there will just have to keep writing that line into your I Love You, Man slash fiction. (/Film)
