Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse more than just a viral vid?

Now here is a just plain weird way that the web is influencing "real" life. Pals Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, along with actor Jay Baruchel and director Jason Stone, put together a trailer for a fake movie called Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse and threw it online. It's funny stuff and as thing go, it gathered a following. Some studio execs saw the trailer and decided it would make a great big screen film! The premise of the short film is: two guys holed up in a seedy apartment, getting on each other's nerves while the rest of the world gets torn up by ravenous monsters. Kinda like the Odd Couple at the end of the world. The weirdness enters when execs from Mandate Pictures give the go ahead for a full-length feature version. The trailer is funny enough, funny enough for a big screen though? You decide. Oh NSFW because of language.
