50 Shades of Buscemi


Steve Buscemi makes Fifty Shades of Grey better. At least, that seems to be the operating principle behind “50 Shades of Buscemi,” a new video that’s gone viral. It integrates Buscemi movie clips into the real Fifty Shades of Grey trailer. And it’s spectacular. Watch below!

In the hilarious spoof, Dakota Johnson still plays Anastasia Steele, but various versions of on-screen Buscemi are used in the Christian Grey role. It all works way better than you might expect. If you thought the original Fifty Shades of Grey trailer was erotic and provocative, wait until you see it Buscemi-ized. While the trailer makes effective use of Buscemi’s famous “Boardwalk Empire” character Nucky Thompson, it also includes a bunch of his goofier work as an Adam Sandler sidekick.

Fifty Shades of Grey has been frequent parody fodder as its release nears. Recently, Vanessa Bayer spoofed the movie’s elevator scene, awkwardly trying to seduce strangers in a widely viewed video. On Monday’s “Tonight Show,” Jimmy Fallon and Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan played a game called “Fifty Accents of Grey,” during which they used different voices to say sexy lines.

The real movie will debut on Friday, just in time for everyone’s Valentine’s Day Weekend bondage sessions. Watch “50 Shades of Buscemi” below, and tell us what you think!
