A little less than a month ago the above photo mysteriously hit the web with no context, and those of us who consider ourselves Community eye candy aficionados being wondering how the hell we could have possibly missed it. Turns out it was a bootleg copy from a GQ photoshoot that has now been released today. Finally. I can only conjecture that Brie and Jacobs suspected they’d once again be locked out by the Emmys and saved the photo for this exact moment to undermine the Emmy nomination announcements and quite possibly break the internet.
“With a shoot like this,” Alison Brie (left) says, “you’re negotiating these positions together: ‘Can you move your crotch a little to the left? Really get it up there.’ ”
“The next day we were texting each other,” Gillian Jacobs adds. ” ‘Are you sore, too?’ “
Warming Glow — the internet’s foremost authority in all things Alison Brie — of course has the most thorough coverage you’ll find on the world wide web, so I thought it would also be fun to look at the Twitter carnage this photo/video release has caused. Here are some of the best I’ve seen. Suck it, Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
