'Wet Hot American Summer' Rejected Titles Read By David Wain and Joe Lo Truglio (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"Wet Hot American Summer" is regarded as a cult comedy classic, but had an email exchange between director David Wain and actor/writer Michael Showalter ended differently, we might be quoting lines from "Butt Camp" to this day.

Thanks to a tweet from Showalter, the world now knows what could have been. "Butt Camp" was just one of over 30 titles rattled off by Wain and Showalter over email when brainstorming names to replace the working title "Camp," and at a recent screening celebrating the 10th anniversary of the movie, Wain and fellow "Wet Hot" star Joe Lo Truglio read the old email thread verbatim.

The exchange seems to start off earnestly, before quickly devolving into titles like "The Summer of Sneakers and Genies," "Taco Meat Drips on Nipples 2" and about two dozen other non-sequitur and NSFW suggestions.
