Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn are starring in a comedy about being somewhere they don’t really fit in. Except this time, it’s not a wedding. It’s Google.

In The Internship, the two comedians play salesmen who take internships at the tech behemoth, after their present-day employer goes under. Surrounded by young’uns, they use their wit and wiles to compete with people who actually know about, you know, computers, in the hopes of landing coveted non-internship gigs.

The third star is the company itself. As reported by TechCrunch, Google was very much a part of the production process. It’s clear from the trailer that Google HQ was used as a location, and the two stars participated in a Google+ Hangout to promote the movie. The movie poster’s typography even mimics the search engine’s famous rainbow lettering. Plus, the word “Google” appears in the preview almost as much as the actors’ faces do.

The Internship is in theaters June 7—but you don’t need us to tell you that when Google’s in the picture.
