It’s A Political Comedy Video With All Of Your Favorite People!

by Jim Newell

We have no idea who the people behind “Funny or Die” are… but apparently they are very well connected in Hollywood and Washington? This thing has its moments, such as Mike Gravel quietly reading the Pentagon Papers and Madame Peggington Noonanshire simply showing her Shining face. [via Fishbowl DC]

Hola wonkerados.

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

Why do I feel like I need to take a shower now?

Origami January 22, 2009 at 3:43 pm

I never, ever want to see Larry King’s “sexy” face again.

Pegs looks cute though! And she knows it.

gom January 22, 2009 at 3:44 pm

I am not a fan of this facial hair trend.

Deepthroat January 22, 2009 at 3:49 pm

the prop 8 musical is better. this is kinda cringe-worthy. So self-conscious.

twowheeljunkie January 22, 2009 at 3:50 pm

Was that Obama girl?

slithytoves January 22, 2009 at 3:53 pm

I’m way too lazy to watch this. What’s it say?

El Pinche January 22, 2009 at 3:54 pm

WIN for Common and zoom shot of Dean on the one-brass hit.

CuntryFirst January 22, 2009 at 3:55 pm

[re=225959]Deepthroat[/re]: Exactly. It’s certainly more “die” than “funny.”

johnbpt January 22, 2009 at 3:56 pm

Mmmmm…Sarah Silverman.

I don’t recognize any of those people when they are out of their element – i.e. my television. Except Joe. I would know that Easter Island-sized head anywhere. January 22, 2009 at 3:57 pm

There are videos of kids stacking dice — that is piling dice on top of one another — that can be found on YouTube and are more interesting than this video.

I also recommend my college film-making project:

Must be a slow day at Wonkette headquarters.

This really needs a pop-up video version, because cable TV’s constant explanations of who people are and why they are important superimposed over their faces has withered my brain to the point where I can no longer identify basic people based solely on their appearance

Also, “the people behind FunnyorDie” would most prominently be a Mister Will Fucking Ferrell, but it’s really just a video-posting site that’s a breeding ground for all kinds of comedy groups, these are just a couple of independent guys I’d never heard of with insane amounts of access

I always forget that Washington celebrities are so boring and ugly compared to the Hollywood ones.

Also, I cannot fathom how someone can get that close to Tucker Carlson and not donkeypunch him.

Toomush Infermashun January 22, 2009 at 3:59 pm

Hmm, think it might have been better if they’d bitch-slapped Peggy, but….

Heywood Floyd January 22, 2009 at 4:00 pm

And Ron Paul get shut out again. Despicable.

cracksammich January 22, 2009 at 4:03 pm

Will Ferrell’s production company, Gary Sanchez Productions, runs the site.

Who says they didn’t?

mattbolt January 22, 2009 at 4:06 pm

Who did they have to blow to get to Howard Dean? What was Wes Clark burning? Why, for the love of all that’s holy, was Jack Black nekkid?!
At first I was yawning at a 70s-themed montage, but bravo fellas. I’m kinda jealous.

WadISay January 22, 2009 at 4:08 pm

[re=225953]Origami[/re]: I have thought exactly the same about the Pegstress’es appearances in the last few days. Does she have a little Hope in her, or is she getting laid?

bitchincamaro January 22, 2009 at 4:10 pm

“Funny Or Die” in regards to Larry King? The choice is obvious.

El Pinche January 22, 2009 at 4:14 pm

Where’s Dan Quayle and/or Perry Ferrell? What kind of bullshit is this?

sailingthestyx January 22, 2009 at 4:27 pm

[re=225961]twowheeljunkie[/re]: heidi fleiss…l. a. madame…kicked tom sizemore’s ass

as far as shamless cameos go, i much prefer the Bree Sharp classic, “David Duchovny, why won’t you love me.” But maybe that’s just because i’m a huge X-Files dork?

american mutt January 22, 2009 at 5:05 pm

[re=225961]twowheeljunkie[/re]: you know, a few months ago i realized i worked for a creep who hired obama girl to do some modeling, like back in 2003. ugh.

american mutt January 22, 2009 at 5:06 pm

Soledad O’Brien = hottie boom boddie

loudmouthredhead January 22, 2009 at 5:08 pm

Is it weird that I recognized more of the politicians than the tv/music celebrities? Am I officially a political nerd now?

blader January 22, 2009 at 5:51 pm

I vote die
because Newt!is the erectile dysfunction of intergoogle humor..a bad case of cancer seems a lot more funny

OReillysVibrator January 22, 2009 at 6:21 pm

Ehh, no comedy behind it, just the viral equivalent of name-dropping in the guise of high-fives.

BadDog! January 22, 2009 at 8:39 pm

I am surprised Wonkettes don’t know Funny or Die – check out Pearl the Landlord video on that site.
I bow to the Wonkette.

lmj January 23, 2009 at 12:06 am

As for shameless name and face dropping, I only recognized about a quarter of those people. I am so plugged in!

TGY January 23, 2009 at 2:15 pm

Well, *I* thought it was funny. Hm.

dav August 10, 2009 at 1:05 am

it was very funny.
