Arrested Development: Check Out Dr. Tobias Fünke’s Internet Video Audition Reel

Tweeted by Ron Howard this morning, “Dr. Tobias Fünke Presents: The Acting Styles of Dr. Tobias Fünke,” a.k.a., adds another viral element to the world of Arrested Development hype marketing. It’s a pretty good one, too: Four characters (Average Fellow, Cowpoke, Doctor, Action Hero, Big Man on Campire, and Motorcycle Ruffian) shot against a green screen that you (literally!) can insert anywhere. There are (as always, unintended) double entendres brilliantly threaded throughout: “Feel free to insert me into any available openings — my bits are sure to startle you!” Even the site’s solitary ad takes you somewhere magical.
