Fifty Shades Of Blue, Selena Gomez and Nick Kroll poke fun at ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ in a recently released video sketch. It looks like Selena Gomez has been bitten by the “Fifty Shades of Grey” bug. The teen star is the most recent celebrity to joke about the er*tic book, which has gained enormous attention and popularity as of late, in a Funny or Die video released this week.
The video, titled “Fifty Shades of Blue,” opens with Gomez reading the popular book before she is summoned to the front door when the doorbell rings. She then opens the door to find Carl Blue, a painter, standing before her. He coughs loudly into his hands, wipes them on his overalls and extends his hand in greeting to Gomez. “His eyes were staring deep into mine. I could feel my cheeks getting flushed,” she says in a deadpan voice-over.
“I hope he didn’t notice.” Throughout the video, Gomez is helplessly turned on by Blue, played by “The League’s” Nick Kroll, even though at one point he picks dirt out of his belly-button in front of her and makes snide comments about her. As he paints a wall in her house blue, Gomez channels E.L James’ lip-biting main character Anastasia Steele. But, unfortunately for Gomez, Blue leaves once the wall is painted, and she is left without a man.
