'Saturday Night Live' Presidential Reunion By Funny Or Die
Funny or Die's Presidential Reunion hosts a slew of Saturday Night Live talent.
Will Ferrell's web-based comedy outlet Funny or Die premiered a new video of hilarious proportions. On top of featuring a slew of Saturday Night Live alumna, the video, Presidential Reunion, was directed by Oscar-winner Ron Howard.
With a cast including SNL greats like Maya Rudolph, Fred Armisen, Chevy Chase, Dana Carvey, Will Ferrell, Darrell Hammond, Dan Akroyd, and Jim Carey, Presidential Reunion serves as a hilarious manifestation of propaganda in support of President Barack Obama's proposed U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Agency.
In the skit Rudolph takes the role of Michelle Obama while Armisen reprises his role as Barack. The video kicks off with Armisen complaining to Rudolph in bed about the reactions to his proposed policy when all of a sudden Will Ferrell as George W. Bush, Darrell Hammond as Bill Clinton, and Dana Carvey as George H. W. Bush enter the room a la A Christmas Carol offering advice to the Prez. From there Dan Aykroyd as Jimmy Carter, Chevy Chase as Gerald Ford, and Jim Carey as Ronald Reagan join the picture and even more hilarity ensues.
Even if you aren't in support of the proposed U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Agency check out the clip at least for the cast of characters.
