The Best Of #Step Brothers

By 02.06.12

Did you hear that Will Ferrell did a Super Bowl commercial for Old Milwaukee? You may have missed it, seeing as how it only aired in North Platte, Nebraska, which is also the reason it was the best Super Bowl commercial. Random, mysterious, fun, and destined to create more buzz than any of the standard million dollar ad spots. Brilliant.

Speaking of random and fun, I’ve wanted to cover Step Brothers in this Monday slot for a while now but haven’t found the right opportunity. This tenuous Will Ferrell-Old Milwaukee transition may be the best window I get so I’m not going to let it pass. While it’s not the greatest comedy of all time by any stretch, the Ferrell-Reilly collabo is the perfect mixture of likability, repeatability, and a Tumblr-friendly release date to make it at an internet treasure. Not a week goes by that I don’t stumble across another web-made Step Brothers gem that delights me. And I think we can all agree that they belong here in one big “Best of #” for all of us to enjoy.

So much room for activities…
