Jason Bateman: Able to Strip & Chew Gum at the Same Time

Wrigley’s Orbit gum has released its second of three clips that bring together Arrested Development stars Jason Bateman and Will Arnett. “Gob” is absent from this clip, but Bateman dressed in drag as a stripper nicely makes up for it.

Similar to their first five-minute clip entitled “Prom Night,” this spot also runs a bit long at a little over four minutes. Still, it’s definitely a funny ad, but it takes a great commercial to be able to hold viewers’ attention for that long in today’s internet ADD environment.

Bateman sent out a tweet letting us know that the new short was posted, though unfortunately he didn’t know how to post the link. His tweet reads: “The new Orbit short from Dumbdumb is up at YouTube. I’d post the link, but still dumb. Sorry. It’s called The Dancer. Hope you like it!”

The ads come from Bateman and Arnett’s production company, DumbDumb, which is backed by Electus, the IAC-supported company run by former NBC entertainment chief Ben Silverman.
