Before she hit it big on Modern Family, Julie Bowen (Claire) had the very important task of seducing Bradley Cooper, all in the name of comedy, of course.

Julie, along with a pre-fame BCoop make a weird but hilarious appearance in an old skit (“Raking Leaves”) from cult TV sketch comedy show The State. The two stars appear alongside comedy heavyweights David Wain, Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter.

The State was an off-beat sketch comedy show that ran on MTV from 1993 to 1995. The show launched the career of David, the two Michaels, and several other comedy stars who went on to star in such shows as Reno 911.

This isn’t hunky Bradley’s first encounter with The State crew: the actor also co-starred alongside Showalter and Black in Wain’s film Wet Hot American Summer.

Watch Julie and Bradley below.
