Aziz Ansari, the bearded third of MTV’s “Human Giant” sketch-comedy cast, writes:
Herc, Have you heard about this insane thing MTV is letting us do? Check it out: HUMAN GIANT: 24 HOURS LIVE ON MTV! Last week, MTV told us we could get 24 hours on MTV and MTV2 to do whatever we want. So on Friday, May 18th at noon - we'll take over both channels for a full day and will host live from MTV's Times Square studio. They're literally letting us do whatever we want - we can program whatever shows we want, have guests, bands, music videos, anything! We just have to stay up for 24 hours and get a million hits on our website. Here are a few of the guests we have coming down, (more bands and guests will be announced later in the week): Fred Armisen Will Arnett Todd Barry Jon Benjamin Andy Blitz Michael Cera Zach Galifianakis Jon Glaser Bill Hader Nick Kroll Eugene Mirman The National Bob Odenkirk Rob Riggle Slovin and Allen Michael Showalter Tapes 'n Tapes Ted Leo Tegan and Sara
Will Aziz and his clean-shaven cohorts really stay up all 24 hours? Or will they pussy out like Jerry Lewis and take a fucking nap in the middle? Make them earn that second-season renewal, America!! Friday Noon – Saturday Noon. MTV.

    It's a crime against humanity that AD isn't on tv anymore.

    Bob Odenkirk: A REALLY Great Guy

    by IForgotAbout19

    This sounds totally badass

  • May 17, 2007, 10:15 p.m. CST

    It is indeed a crime

    by theruggedman

    and now they're cancelling Hurwitz shows before they ever air. I hope the Thick Of It pilot leaks soon. At least we've got The Brothers Solomon to look forward to. Watch the trailer for it at http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/thebrotherssolomon/index.html Looks to make up for the Let's Go To Prison fiasco.

    Wouldn't this make more sense in the summer

    by jimbojones123

    Aren't they trying to grab the kiddos anymore at the MTV?

  • May 18, 2007, 9:23 a.m. CST

    Umm....MTV should Stick to music

    by Jugdish

    But I think they gave up on that years ago

  • May 18, 2007, 10:18 a.m. CST

    I would like to watch this

    by INWOsuxRED

    too bad I have to do things like work and sleep. I hope someone is nice enough to record everything and put it up on the internet, so I can watch it in installments.

  • May 18, 2007, 11:50 a.m. CST

    Ted Leo?

    by Massage...Bored

    I figured that dude wouldn't step within 20 miles of that studio. If he's performing, even weirder. Ted Leo rocks though, listen to him people!

  • May 18, 2007, 12:36 p.m. CST

    Saw 1 episode of this and it reminded me of The State

    by skimn

    but won't this cut into someones taping schedule for "Best Week Ever"?

  • May 18, 2007, 3:37 p.m. CST

    funny stuff...

    by vinceklortho

    Not necessarily all the human giant sketches, bu the fact that Mtv is actually doing this. I've watched a couple of their sketches and some are really funny, yes kinda like the State. The Shamu kissing sketch was great. What I'm really wondering is when I come back shitfaced from the bar tonight at around 3 o'clock, these guys are really going to still be hanging around the studio? If that's the case, that's fucking hilarious.

  • May 18, 2007, 4:52 p.m. CST

    vinceklortho - you're right....

    by FilmCritic3000

    If only MTV would do more freeform type of stuff like this, they'd get a hell of alot more buzz and acclaim than they've gotten in the past decade.

    A few things witnessed so far during this 24 hour extra

    by FilmCritic3000

    A few things witnessed so far during this 24 hour extravaganza... A performance by the band Mastodon The Toys R Us in Times Square and the entire street it's on lose power One of the Human Giant cast getting to third base with a picture of Tony Danza Eddie Murphy's "Party All The Time" music video Pearl Jam's "Evenflow" music video Ted Leo performing A fish orgasming A man forced to walk around Times Square with a boombox blasting "Hanging Tough" by New Kids On The Block A caller getting through with a poem that turned racist. And there's about 18 more hours to go...

    Also....

    by vinceklortho

    wouldn't it be great if other networks made their fans work to keep their favorite shows on the air? So, in a sense, the blame can be put on the fans for their shows not making it to another season. Since most of you nerds "say" you don't watch MTV anymore, this is one of the best things they've done in awhile, in a crazy promotional sort of way.

  • May 18, 2007, 5:32 p.m. CST

    the racist poem phone call was great.

    by vinceklortho

    could of been planted, I don't know, they seemed geniunely disturbed by it. I love the fact that during that, they still had that guy with a boom box blasting New Kids on the Block walking around Times Square. Who knows when they're going to let him stop?

  • May 18, 2007, 5:38 p.m. CST

    Feels like caution's been thrown to the wind..I LOVE IT

    by FilmCritic3000

    Todd Barry? Nick Kroll? Zach Galifianakis? On MTV? And they're allowed to be funny? This is great television and I'm loving every minute of it. I can't wait until Hader, Samberg, Armisen, Cera, and Arnett show up.

  • May 18, 2007, 5:55 p.m. CST

    I'm with ya, FilmCritic.

    by vinceklortho

    this is on MTV? Really?

  • May 18, 2007, 7:40 p.m. CST

    cheesus crust.

    by thefoggiest

    this is getting fucking weird, can't wait for what it's like at around 3:30am

  • May 18, 2007, 7:41 p.m. CST

    Holy shit was that funny!

    by FilmCritic3000

    John Krasinski holding Rob Riggle and Michael Cera hostage with a "handgun" unless humangiant.mtv.com gets 1 million hits while Will Arnett whips out a high-tech watergun, and then Arnett holds Cera hostage, as he wants the site to get less hits. This is fucking unreal...and it's ON TELEVISION

  • May 18, 2007, 9:21 p.m. CST

    man, i'm behind here on the west coast.

    by vinceklortho

    been watching here for awhile. Just got done with Albert Hammond Jr. performing. Is that the Strokes? Nope. Just one of the guys. What is going on?

  • May 18, 2007, 9:46 p.m. CST

    vinceklortho, just wait...it gets more abstract..

    by FilmCritic3000

    You won't believe what you're seeing pretty soon.

  • May 18, 2007, 10:33 p.m. CST

    Not that it would ever happen

    by Napoleon Park

    but if I was given 24 hours of MTV I'd play music videos.

  • May 18, 2007, 11:20 p.m. CST

    I like the old people

    by INWOsuxRED

    what I have seen of this has been entertaining. I now repeat my request for someone to post all 24 hours somewhere where I could do some sort of thing to see them.

  • May 19, 2007, 12:40 p.m. CST

    INWOsuxRED

    by momassive

    Dude, are you the REAL INWOsuxRED? as in the creator of that every wrestler ever website from years ago? If so, I tip my hat to you, that was seriously one of the funniest sites ever. My friends and are were so hooked on it that we recently found it again on the wayback machine to relive it again. You should probably start that page back up.

  • May 19, 2007, 1:16 p.m. CST

    Latino my face!

    by INWOsuxRED

    They are repeating way too much on this thing. I keep tuning in and seeing the same sketches. I would prefer they draw out things like yelling at sandwiches, rather than playing the same sketches over and over. Also, I haven't watched wrestling in years, so I don't know if I would be very good at adding things to that site.

  • May 19, 2007, 4:42 p.m. CST

    still...

    by momassive

    Kudos to you. That site was pure genius. It should be archived forever for all to see.
