Rather than send in a seasoned reporter to do the press-junket for Michael Bay’s upcoming film ‘Pain & Gain,’ the humor-driven YouTube channel Screen Junkies sent in Nick Mundy, a superfan of one of the movie’s stars — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately for them), the head of marketing referred to the stunt as “the worst interview [she’s] ever seen in the history of [her] career.” Ouch.
After watching “the best movie in the last 10 years” (his words, not ours), Mundy got to interview the actors, including ‘Community’ and ‘Hangover’ star Ken Jeong, ‘Monk’ himself Tony Shalboub, ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ and ‘Warm Bodies’ zombie Rob Corddry, Mark Wahlberg, and the man himself: the Rock.
What could go wrong? Answer: everything.
In addition to only asking questions about the Rock, Mundy gets the stink-eye from Wahlberg, a stern reprimand from Jeong and basically makes a fool of himself in front of three-time Emmy-winner Shaloub.
Painful for him? Probably. But tons of fun for us.
