Jason Segel with The Broken West – ‘Dracula’s Lament’ (Video)

The Late Late Show‘s Craig Ferguson celebrated his 1000th episode on Tuesday night, and he did it in style. Save for the occasional scantily-clad backup dancer, the show consisted entirely of puppets. As if that weren’t cool enough, Ferguson also enlisted the aid of the always-game Jason Segel, who performed his “Dracula’s Lament” ballad from Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

In keeping with the puppet-only theme, Segel’s backing band was hidden, but if they hadn’t been you would’ve seen that they were Merge Records band The Broken West. The group fleshed out the song admirably, tweaking it with lush instrumentation and a rock and roll backbeat absent from the Marshall version. We’re not exactly sure how a band gets a gig playing backup for Jason Segel and a puppet vampire, but we do know we want their agent. Check out the festivities yourself—the song starts around the one-minute mark—in the clip above.

‘Whoever Said That Three’s a Crowd Can Go to Hell’ (Video)

In an unexpected crossover, Jason Segel, the charming star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, I Love You, Man, and TV’s sorely missed Freaks and Geeks, joined The Swell Season on stage in Los Angeles last night to tickle the ivories and some funny bones. Performing a song expressly designed to make Swell Season groupies have sex with him, Segel took Marketa Irglova’s advice and included as much personal information in the song as possible. Segel’s Hail Mary pass included, among other things, giving out his home phone number to the crowd, bragging about his celebrity status, and insisting that no special effects were used in his full-frontal scene from Sarah Marshall. Check out the hilarious clip above.
