As new properties hit popularity, we sometimes open the door for worlds to collide in wonderful ways. Funny or Die has brought back Mitch Robbins (with the help of Billy Crystal) from City Slickers and dropped him into the role of Westworld host.
Of course, he’s a malfunctioning host, and part of the problem is that he can’t stop killing Phil (Daniel Stern). What exactly is Mitch’s problem, and what’s he after? It’s up to Westworld staffers Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) and Sylvester (Ptolemy Slocum) to figure that out if possible…, well, or just scrap Mitch if it comes to that.
Crystal nails the short adventure, and while it isn’t exactly laugh-out-loud hilarity, it’s worth a watch for those who remember the film, and a good excuse to make sure new people have the ability to remember the film. Plus, getting some actual Westworld actors in on the fun is a nice treat.
Of the enterprise, Crystal said, “It was a thrill to be a City Slicker once more with Daniel Stern in this video. Funny Or Die did a fantastic job to help Mitch find his smile again. Big thanks to everyone from WestWorld, Luke, Ptolemy and Angela.”
Take a look below and get a dose of comedy to kick off the day.
Years after their ‘City Slickers’ narrative was retired, Westworld hosts Mitch (Billy Crystal) & Phil (Daniel Stern) are still happily driving cattle, however Mitch has started to malfunction and it’s up to Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) to analyze why he has gone off his loop.
