If you're a Paul Rudd fan — and how could you not be following "Dinner for Schmucks," "I Love You Man," "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "Knocked Up," and "Clueless" — you've got to check out the video after the jump. It's of a flow-rocking, yellow tuxedo and shorts-wearing Paul Rudd working as a Bat Mitzvah DJ in Southern California in 1992.
Says Forward writer Gabrielle Birkner, who dug up the footage of her special day:
He emceed my bat mitzvah, back in 1992 — months before landing a recurring role the NBC drama “Sisters.” (“Clueless” was still a few years off.) The soft-spoken aspiring actor whom my mom and I met on the hunt for bat mitzvah DJs — I took an immediate liking to Rudd — turned out to be the perfect choice for the event. Rudd, donning a yellow tuxedo jacket, a ruffled shirt, shorts and Doc Martens, ably and energetically led us through all of the bat mitzvah staples: Candle-lighting, Coke & Pepsi, Toasts, limbo, "Hands Up," Challah-cutting and “YMCA.” And as the "Today" show-themed bat mitzvah party came to a close, he invited my friends onto the dance floor to sing a moving rendition of “That’s What Friends Are For.”
