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.
