The novelty wears a little thin in this spoof video for the blood-in-the-water comedy ‘Piranha 3D,’ in which the movie’s actors plead for an Oscar. But Paul Scheer (‘You got so many of them; just give us one’) and Adam Scott (‘There’s enough CG in this movie to nominate us for best animated feature’) elicit a chuckle, just as the notion of a thousand bikini-clad spring-breakers getting their heads bitten off elicits a chuckle. Next up for the movie’s cast: a nighttime swim with Tom Sherak.
