Let’s go, lesbians (and everyone else) — Billy Eichner’s revered on-the-fly interview series Billy on the Street just debuted its first new episode in three years, featuring one very special guest: the “famous and beloved straight man” Paul Rudd to promote Eichner’s upcoming gay rom-com Bros.
In typical Billy on the Street fashion, Eichner and Rudd dashed around Manhattan with a microphone. Instead of random trivia questions, the duo were on a mission to corral straight people into seeing Bros, which Eichner executive produced, co-wrote, and stars in. Throughout their escapades, Eichner and Rudd literally pick up a fan, cause another to fangirl, encounter a few possible homophobes, and question some youths about Barbra Streisand.
Eichner also rallies a group of lesbians to help him spread the good word: “Let’s go lesbians, let’s bro!” he yells amid the New York hustle and bustle. Watch the brand-new episode of Billy on the Street below.
Bros premieres September 30th, and it stars Eichner as a “podcasting powerhouse”-turned-screenwriter who’s forced to face the harsh consequences of his commitment issues. As for Rudd, he’s set to return as a recurring character in the upcoming third season of Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building.
