Bob Odenkirk premieres a new project called Let's Do This today on Adultswim.com. The comedian's solo episode follows a sleazy, low-budge filmmaker, Cal MacKenzie-Goldeberg (Odenkirk), and his ragtag group of shameless fame-seekers.Fans will recognize Odenkirk from Mr. Show, Breaking Bad and countless other TV appearances, where he generally plays a cheap, arrogant skeezball. Let's Do This is no different.In AdultSwim.com's exclusive promo, "Harry Podder and the Lost Lebaron," Cal works with a demanding African warlord to create a wizard movie while dancing around copyright infringements.Let's Do This also stars hilarious "I've seen that guy in a million things" comedians like Jerry Minor (Delocated's Mighty Joe Jon, The Black Blonde), Brian Posehn (The Sarah Silverman Program) and Cincinnati-native Andre Hyland (The Jesse Miller Talk Show, Tracy, Dean & Jesus) all star in the video.It's kind of unclear whether this is a one-time promo or the first in a webseries or possibly a kind of test pilot, but it's pretty funny, so check it out:Check back with Adultswim.com for Let's Do This updates.

Speaking of Global Biotechnology Corporation PR Troubles…

‘Mr. Show’ clip demonstrates corporate frustrations over operating a terrible company

It has to be difficult writing press releases defending corporations’ PR challenges when dealing with such dubious commodities as chemically enhanced foods, cigarettes, alcohol, the occasional toy that rips little kids’ hair out but doesn’t get recalled because it’s too attractive to kids at the point-of-sale, etc. Reminds us of a Mr. Show clip where GloboChem executives receive an earful from a new advertising duo, who get the CEO’s attention by explaining that the company has an image problem: “The perception is that this company is a beast, a monster, a cold heartless, smelly behemoth, run by a greedy fat, fat-headed fattypants — a fatso.” The CEO’s response? “Who do you think you are? This company cares! We were in the people business when you were in short pants. My great, great, great grandfather started this company with one single, rickety, leaky, handcrafted, slave ship and a simple motto: people selling people — to people. So don’t tell me that I’m fat!”The execs eventually come around to the idea of a new mascot: Pit Pat, the @font-face { font-family: "MS 明朝"; }@font-face { font-family: "Cambria Math"; }@font-face { font-family: "Cambria"; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: Cambria; }.MsoChpDefault { font-family: Cambria; }div.WordSection1 { page: WordSection1; }"magical pansexual nonthreatening spokes-thing." Mr. Show was an awesome sketch comedy on HBO from 1995-98 featuring David Cross (Dr. Tobias Fünke in Arrested Development) and Bob Odenkirk (a bunch of really funny stuff).

The Hyland Road

Cincinnati native Andre Hyland is ready for his comedy close-up

It’s perfect for the Cincinnati native/L.A. resident, an improvisational comic whose guerrilla style finds him inhabiting a broad range of fringe characters, disturbing the audience unaware of the joke and delighting the audience that is. It’s a fine wire to walk, and Andre Hyland traverses it with Wallenda-like agility
