Jonah Hill is at his awkward best in this intentionally terrible ad for a London store

So bad, it's good.

Kevin Beirne

You know how some things are just so bad that they become hysterically funny?

Like Tommy Wiseau’s The Room or the current state of British politics, all we can do is laugh at this expertly created promo for a London store’s collaboration with Reebok on a new shoe design.

We’ve seen Hill show off his comedy chops in hits like Superbad and 21 Jump Street, but he’s also shown he can do more serious stuff like his Oscar-nominated performance in Moneyball.

But don’t worry, by the looks of it the Get Him to the Greek star is perfectly content to continue utilising the awkwardness that helped make him such a big hit in the first place.

Advertising a collaboration between Palace and Reebok (or Reeboke, as he calls them in the video), Hill uncomfortably navigates the London store from the comfort of a greenscreen and displays all the elegance of a teenager with his first erection as he clumsily attempts to interact with the shop’s customers.

And Hill gets a chance to show off his impressive skateboarding knowledge, saying he always pops into Palace to “wax my graptape and every other truck stuff I need”.
