Comedy legend David Cross, who created the classic skit series Mr. Show with Bob and David and the cult sitcom The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, marks his feature directorial debut with Hits. This timely expose examines Youtube cultural and the dangers of viral celebrity in our tech-based society. The first trailer has arrived, and it delivers an ensemble cast that is sure to get any comedy fan excited.
Hits takes a dark look at the nature of fame in 21st century YouTube America. David Cross brings his camera into a small town in upstate New York populated by people who trade in unrealistic expectations. It's a story in which fame, delusion, earnestness, and recklessness meet, shake hands, and disrupt the lives around them.
Watch the first footage, which finds one small-town girl with dreams of making it big on the internet fall into the shadow of her well-meaning father who becomes a viral sensation against his control. The cast features Michael Cera, Wyatt Cenac, David Koechner, Amy Sedaris, Jason Ritter and a whole cavalcade of up and coming comedians. Hits hits theaters later this year:
