Portlandia Boldly Attempts to Make Celery Cool Again in 11-Minute Preview For New Season
Kale is cool, Brussels sprouts are back, heirloom tomatoes are hot, and the head of the Produce Sales Headquarters is very happy. But there's one outlier to the up-and-to-the-right sales charts that the organization is seeing with other vegetables: celery. It's up to Steve Buscemi's Marty, a down-on-his-luck celery salesman, to save his job by embarking on a noirish quest to make his product popular with consumers who don't even require the fiberous stalk in their Bloody Marys anymore.
So begins the plot of the fantastic 11-minute preview for Portlandia's fourth season, a high-stakes thriller that looks and feels like some of the series' slickest work. It's definitely worth a watch, if just to see how the wily bacon manipulated his way into almost everything.
