Wolverine Gets Fired

This video went viral today.  It started the day with just 65,000 views and at the time I’m writing this, it’s over a million views now.  The reason why it’s so popular is because it’s hysterically funny.  Here is what it would look like when Wolverine gets fired by Professor Xavier.

We’ll talk more about this video after the jump.

If you are saying to yourself, “who the heck is Pete Holmes?” don’t worry, you are not alone.  I was thinking the same thing and guess what, I can guarantee that you are familiar with some of his work.

First, Pete Holmes has been a stand up comedian.  That’s pretty much a given.  He has been featured on several stand up comedy shows and has appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.  He is the voice of several characters on Comedy Central’s Ugly Americans but still, that is not where you know him from.  Want to know where you know Pete Holmes from?

Pete Holmes is the voice of the E*Trade baby and is one of the writers of the commercial. It just goes to show you that whenever someone seems to get a big break out of no where, just know that they have probably been paying their dues for many years before the big break.

The Pete Holmes show premieres on TBS on October 28 at 10:00.
