Forget coffee – this NSFW video of Veep’s prickly, foul-mouthed characters demanding cappuccinos with “crack sprinkles” and hissing about the “most important piss” their boss has ever taken should be the only energy boost you need. The first season of HBO’s caustic political comedy hits DVD and Blu-ray next Tuesday; beyond even more deleted scenes, the release features a few shorts starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s hapless vice president, a making-of documentary, and commentary from creator Armando Iannucci and Louis-Dreyfus, among others.
If you still haven’t caught the series that won the Seinfeld alum her latest Emmy – for shame! – consider this a decent introduction. When even the material that got cut crackles, you know the show’s gotta be good.
Veep returns to HBO April 14.
