Exclusive Video: Happy Endings Gets Meta as Max and Alex Become Trendsetters

Get More: Exclusive, Video

On the second of this Friday’s Happy Endings episodes (starting at 8/7c), Max and Alex get approached to be tastemakers — and the reasons they’re chosen are all the reasons we love the ABC comedy: “You’re hip. You’re diverse. You’re like a fresh new take on the gay guy,” a marketing rep tells them in the following meta-esque exclusive video.

But first, the “real folks” have to accept the harsh reality that their new titles aren’t literal and that the gig does not involve inventing flavors such as super chicken, almond sweat, pretzel cheese and falafel paste.

  • They already had a cute meta-comment about Max being a “refreshing character” or something like that in the episode where he was pretending to date Abby Elliott.

    • I don’t know if ABC will renew it according to Tvbythenumbers, but it has a chance with USA. Happy Endings fans need to represent and tell USA we want Happy Endings renewed!

  • “White chocolate, better for you than dark chocolate. Texting & driving, sorry, I’ve got friends. Chris Brown & Rihanna, I get it RhiRhi.” *Finger wag from Alex*
    This show is the absolute best.

  • Where once stood a great show, now stands a 22 minute all-you-can-mug-and-deliver-lines-in-a-shrill-manner buffet.
