If you caught the Children of the 80s’ comedy triumvirate that is Stella in concert earlier this month, you’ve already seen the below. If not, here’s one of the first shorts starring Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, and David Wain to hit the internet since the Stella Shorts stopped appearing online way back in 2004. It’s a happy occasion:
I like how it rifles through all the requisite birthday emotions. Surprise. Happiness. Joy. Dancing. Nostalgia. Immensely Painful Sadness. Sleepiness. Bad Magicians.
The short is brought to the web courtesy of My Damn Channel. There’s no word yet if we can expect more Stella on the site, but (like I said before) the idea isn’t entirely out of question. Both David Wain and Michael Showlater seem to have an affinity for online series – David Wain’s whimsical Wainy Days is a My Dam Channel original and The Michael Showalter Showalter streams on College Humor – so it’s not too far-fetched to think a full-blown online Stella show is in the works.
