When I was a little kid, I never thought about my teachers having personal lives. They were just random adults there to teach me math, and whenever one of them was in a bad mood, I always assumed it was directly related to one of my fellow classmate’s poor behavior. Now I have friends who are teachers, and I know they’re just as likely to have screwed-up personal lives as the rest of us. That’s definitely the case here with Aziz Ansari in the new clip from 30 Minutes Or Less.

Annoyed at his students texting during his class, Ansari tries to teach them about the Louisiana Purchase but is interrupted by his buddy Jesse Eisenberg who has a crazy story about what he did last night. It involves masked man, bombs and underhanded schemes. Find out the details in the clip below…

There are a lot of things I love about the above clip, but more than anything else, I’m pleased with the casting. By now, we all know Jesse Eisenberg pulls off the nervous guy well, but Aziz Ansari is also perfect as the wise ass, marginally-apathetic teacher. I love how he handles the text messages, and I love his angry shock at his friend bringing a bomb around children.

30 Minutes Or Less opens on August 12th. It also stars Danny McBride and Nick Swardson as the two idiots who strapped Eisenberg into the bomb suit. If the rest of the movie is as good as this clip, we should all be in for a great summer comedy.
