Last week, Vulture and Jon Defreest teamed up for a hilariously fake concept for a Schmidt workout DVD video called Cut the Schmidt. It was a classic Defreest — take something already funny in pop culture and reimagine it to be even more funny.
Schmidt is easily the best character on Fox’s New Girl, which is saying something because that sitcom is filled with great characters. Anyway, Max Greenfield, the actor who plays Schmidt, saw the fake workout DVD and went and made a real workout video. It’s as ridiculous as you would hope for it to be.
I love how much this adds to the world of New Girl and would love it if the show continued to extend the characters like Nick, Jess and Winston through YouTube shorts. [via vulture]
