Jonah Hill Stars In Palace & Reebok's Hilariously Awkward Fashion Ad

It’s as awful as it is brilliant.

Comedic actor Jonah Hill stars in a hilarious Palace and Reebok collaboration teaser for their shoe partnership, which released this past weekend.

The Wolf of Wall Street actor perfectly mocks low-budget ads backed by F-list actors, that are usually aided with really bad, novice-level editing in a two-minute clip highlighting the two-shoe collab. The painfully obvious greenscreen production paired with Hill's awkward delivery of each humorous line makes this one hard to not peel over laughing at. The clip packs in enough awkward pauses, poor dubs, and pure cheesiness for us all, while lightly poking fun at the skateboard culture.

Jonah is a longtime fan of Palace and is a known skater himself so teaming up with the popular skate brand for their collaboration with Reebok, or "Ree-boke", as he unapologetically blunders throughout the clip, was a no-brainer. The Oscar winner is also reportedly planning on creating a film based around skateboarding and the joys of growing up in the 1990s, entitled Mid 90s. While plot details are sparse so far, it will be Hill's directorial debut and slated to be produced by Emmy-winning Scott Rudin and Eli Bush.

The London-based skateboarding retailer released the Club C sneaker available in navy, white and black as well as a fresh take on the Reebok Classics in white and black. They are currently available for purchase online.

Each silhouette will have Palace’s logo imprinted on the laces and branded on the tongue. As Jonah describes, rocking a pair of these bad boys is like, "having the most amazing sex with a rare white tiger on your birthday, and it's also his birthday as well." My guess is, that's a good thing.

Watch the hilarious ad below.
