In a desperate attempt to make the Internet aware of the show, the producers put out InsertMeAnywhere, an attempt to crowdsource funny marketing materials. And Capcom answered the call.

If you were wondering, no, this is not just a fan video: It’s straight from Capcom’s official YouTube feed, as apparently everybody at Capcom North America is an Arrested Development fan.
