Thomas Lennon is Jorge Rivers: Godzilla Lawyer

Being a flashy Hollywood star doesn’t come without its fair share of lawsuits – especially when you’re as careless and destructive as our pal Godzilla. In a time where the granddaddy of kaiju’s path of chaos is showing no signs of slowing down, the people need a hero in the court of law to fight for them.

No one is more qualified for this job than Jorge Rivers, a.k.a. Thomas Lennon(Reno! 911, @Midnight): the classiest, wittiest, and most debonair enforcer of law to ever grace the earth. Today, Mr. Rivers is on the case harder than he’s ever been before, and he’s here to tell you how you can get justice against the King of Monsters.

Are you a monster yourself? Don’t worry. Jorge Rivers wants to represent you too!

    Enough about Tom Lennon already.  sure He’s great but Is there no support for the multi-faceted Godzilla? !  My heart goes out to him with his poor little lip sticking out while he is on the phone.  aww

  2. the stapler/phone part is the best part.

    The book hitting him makes me cry every time.

  4. TJ Heesch says:

    this reminds me of an old SNL skit that had two men trying to be the mayor of their town after their town was under attack by “mutated rabid bats” and zombies and the commercials that they used to slander each other…
    “do you remember the zombie invasion from two years ago? it happened under his administration. i had to kill my wife and kids during that. who did he have to kill?”

    I have some website feedback based on this post:  the new Nerdist video player is snazzy and shiny, but please, no autoplay!  Some of us open multiple tabs then go through them.

    Yay! Shelby Fero!

  8. It is true, Tom Lennon is the funniest person of all time. That is until Dane Cook the 23rd is born in the year 2613.
