Comedy Central's latest round of promos gets plenty of mock-doc comedy finesse from Union and director Rocky Morton. The "You're Among Friends" campaign features portraits of Comedy Central viewers, who are flawed but apparently lovable. Eric, for instance, is a "complete and total failure" who can't remember to pick a crutch-hobbled friend up at the hospital. Diane is a "bright, open-minded floozy with few regrets"-the type who sprays milk into her coffee from a baby bottle, and whose toddler is seen playing with a vibrator. But they're smart enough to watch Jon Stewart instead of the 11 o'clock news.
