There is one word that comes to mind when I think of Paul Rudd: Longevity. Actually that’s a lie. There is one other word that comes to mind, and that’s love. But those two go hand in hand! I love Paul Rudd and his longevity. The longevity of his career that is.
Decades (yes, decades) before anyone had the opportunity to watch people throw up during his mind-blowing Broadway performances, Paul Rudd acted in a Super Nintendo commercial. And ya know what? He’s great in it. He doesn’t even have to speak and he makes me fall in love. All it takes is 30 seconds.
How does he do it? Is it the long-ish curly hair? Or maybe his striking green eyes. Here I am thinking that love doesn’t exist, when I’m staring it in the face. That face is Paul Rudd’s.
The commercial is super cheesy, but it makes me long for the ’90s. Those were the days! Floor length jackets were cool (making a comeback, perhaps?) and Super Nintendo was the best gaming system. I can’t even get into the popular games these days because I’d rather watch them than play them, graphics are that good. Of course we can’t overlook the best part: Paul. Pretty sure the guys at the end of the commercial aren’t staring in wonder at the gaming system —they’re staring at Paul Rudd. I’m certainly not one to try and break up a marriage, but if I was it would be his. Look at this face and tell me you don’t feel the same:
Just when I think I can’t love Paul anymore than I already do, there’s another video of him out there. One featuring Paul’s pre-Clueless profession: bat mitzvah D.J. What I wouldn’t give to go back in time, convert to Judaism, and have him be my D.J.
