David and I just got off the phone with Matt Stone (coolest sentence I’ve ever written). He was extremely nice and apologetic. He explained that when they couldn’t get a copy of an Inception screener, they used our sketch as source material. They thought that the lines in our sketch were taken directly from Inception (and the joke was that they were arranged in rapid succession), rather than original lines written by us.
All is well, and we’re going to meet up with Matt and Trey when they’re in New York.
Matt spoke to the NY Times about it, as well.3 years ago
