Sarah Silverman is getting a lot of attention recently on the web. The case: She released an excerpt from her movie "Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic" (2005) on Google Video.
1The sharp-tongued actress/stand-up-comedian is no stranger to the TV savvy observer. The above mentioned film, which is based on her popular one-woman show of the same name (Directed by Liam Lynch for Roadside Attractions), wasn't her first foray into film. The average Trekkie might know her from the double-episode Future's End where she played a young scientist. Also on her list are flicks like "There's Something About Mary", "The School of Rock" and "Heartbreakers". For us at Clipland she is also well known, for example for a cameo appearance in the underground music video for Rise Up with Fists!! by the band Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins.
Now what is it all about? 2Just watch Sarah Silverman in 'I Love You More' and you will know: this is hard comedy not everybody will like and that will for sure ignite some flame wars on the net. But as with all controversial things on the net, this is a sure bet to become a viral video. Technically not really an official music video (as it is a movie excerpt) it has to be included in Clipland for documentation alone. So be sure to get a glimpse, and don't take it too serious. Sarah's other works are also worth checking out!
Lyrics excerpt: "1,2,3,4 I love you more than bears love honey I love you more than Jews love money I love you more than Asians are good at math I love you even if it's not hip I love you more than Black people don't tip I love you more than Puertoricans need wax I love you more than girls love dolls I love you more than dogs love balls ..."
