    Miracle Turds And Other Important Things To Know About Michael Cera's "Crystal Fairy"

    Cera, Gaby Hoffmann, and Director Sebastian Silva made a very funny, surreal movie about a drug-fueled road trip. The stories behind the film are even wackier.

    1. The floating turd in the opening scene? Silva laid that.

    2. A naked, tripping Gaby Hoffmann is covered in a Mr. Met t-shirt. In reality, it's Silva's favorite tee.

    Silva bought this shirt from a vintage shop in his home country of Chile. He had no idea that it had anything to do with the New York Mets baseball team; Mr. Met, for all his charm, is apparently not an internationally-recognized figure.

    Also: Silva's friend borrowed the shirt a while ago, and he'd like it back, thank you very much.

    3. The S&M photos that Jamie finds... Silva watched a lot of porn to procure those.

    4. Gaby Hoffmann took a double dose of cactus mescaline.

    5. Cera and Silva made another movie together, Magic Magic.
