To celebrate the digital release of Why Him?, the 2016 comedy helmed by John Hamburg (Meet the Parents, Zoolander) starring Bryan Cranston and James Franco, FOX Home Entertainment brought toilets to a Pitchfork party.

The comedy, which sounds like it might have a gross-out factor to rival that of any heavily used Porta Potty, stars Cranston as worried future father-in-law to Franco’s socially inept tech mogul, who woos his daughter.

Cranston’s character struggles with a high-tech toilet in the movie, and that was apparently a good enough reason for the company to supply the Pitchfork parties at the French Legation this weekend with luxurious portable bathrooms featuring electronic smart toilets and other high-end features to provide music lovers the royal flush they never knew they needed.

There’s another booth that allows you to stick your hand in a hole and get a temporary tattoo, but we don’t want to think about that one too much.

Let’s go to the video.
