Eels’ ‘This Is 40′ Deleted Scene Surfaces Online

Subscribe to on

It turns out that Billie Joe Armstrong wasn’t the only rocker with a scene cut from ‘This Is 40,’ the Judd Apatow coming-of-middle-age comedy starring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann that hit screens last month. The Green Day frontman’s deleted scene turned up online last month, and now another clip, this one eaturing the Eels’ Mark Oliver Everett, has surfaced.

In the scene, Everett plays an acoustic version of the Eels tune ‘What I Have to Offer’ and follows his performance by telling Rudd’s record-executive character that the band has decided to sign a contract with a competing label. “Eles does not like to get f—ed, and Eels is not happy,” says Everett, referring to his band in the third person. “Eels is signing with Warner Bros. Records. Eeels feels bad, but Eels is moving on.”

‘This Is 40,’ which is the sequel to Apatow’s 2007 film ‘Knocked Up,’ opened on Dec. 21. It raked in nearly $12 million in its opening weekend and has since grossed more than $36 million total. That’s not a bad draw, but it falls well short of the $220 million that the out-of-nowhere hit ‘Knocked Up’ has earned.
