In this new video from "Funny or Die," Selena Gomez and Nick Kroll parody the 2011 erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey."

In the original novel, a young woman falls for a wealthy but reserved entrepreneur and embarks on an unusual romantic and sexual journey.

The planned trilogy of novels first began as a piece of fan fiction inspired by the "Twilight" vampire novels and has received a mix of praise and ridicule from audiences.

Rather than falling for a sophisticated but introverted businessman, Gomez instead falls for Kroll, a blunt, disinterested house painter who has arrived at her home for some scheduled work. And he's not much to look at either, with fake acne scars on his face, and using his paintbrush to scratch his own belly button.

Nonetheless, Gomez cannot help but fall for the "dominant" Kroll.

As Gomez narrates her growing affection, Kroll continues with his day job before finally noting, "For a girl that doesn't talk at all, you have full-on creeped me out."
