Sure, Michael Cera and Jonah Hill may have co-starred in Superbad, but one man alone stood out and helped them carry that movie: McLovin. And this is how he's rewarded?

In possibly one of the oddest pairings we've seen on the streets of Williamsburg, Christopher Mintz-Plasse (McLovin) and Matchbox Twenty came together in the 'hood for a video shoot this past Saturday. The video is for the band's new single, and to draw editorial inspiration from one of their old hits...we're wondering, Rob Thomas, "Straight up, what did you hope to learn about here?" Guess he's still exiled from mainstream (though perhaps Bushwick would have been more fitting for that.)
