5. Celebrity Group Think: Unintentional Hilarity Ensues
Celebrities don’t seem to realize that it’s neither cool nor ‘edgy’ to be all Truth to Power-y when they are, in fact, The Man™ now. As a result, their pathetic attempts at political discourse are even more hilarious than usual. A group project by Will Ferrell’s Funny or Die, had unintentionally uproarious results. We attempted to watch this clip several times simply to discern just how it was supposed to be funny. Call us cuckoo, but we had assumed that was the goal, as it is from a company called Funny or Die. We swiftly, however, came to the realization that the video must have been based on the latter part of the company’s name and that it was in reference to the “performers” alleged careers. It’s the only conclusion that makes sense, as you will soon see if you can stomach the drivel below:
Complaining about evil profits is particularly amusing coming from actors. A profession wherein the bottom earners scrape by waiting tables. Or, even worse, having to hit up ACORN for a loan and we all know what kind of “service” that entails. Meanwhile, the top earners make obscene amounts of money churning out absolute crap year after year. Case in point: Will Ferrell himself.
Guess what, Will? We, as some of those “Folks” you always pay faux lip service to, believe that you make too much money. Spot us some cash for a video camera and we can make a super cool video too about THAT Crisis ™. Only ours would actually be, you know, funny.
So sorry that real doctors (not just the kind that play them on tv – or in the Rose Garden) and insurance company employees are so dastardly as to try to earn a decent living. In fact, it looks like President Obama is doing his best to soothe your righteous indignation. That whole “saving and creating” jobs thing hasn’t gone so well. We’re pretty sure some insurance company workers have lost their jobs in the “Recovery Act” debacle. Does that ease your alleged mind a bit?
