Saturday Night Live star Bill Hader (with Jason Sudekis and lots of SNL writers, sketch comedy and improv folks) and a buddy (Jo Lo Truglio) star in this hilarious webisode comedy thing. It’s about a guy and his buddy who decide to camp out for a few days to see the newest Sci-Fi Opus/Summer Blockbuster – in this case, something called FutureSpace. That’s not important though.
