The SNL president reunion video is hilarious, and gets the message out about the need for healthcare. The Funny or die.com video of all of the past Saturday Night Live president impersonators is spot-on, not to mention hilarious and newsworthy. Funny or Die has managed to round up every single presidential parodist SNL ever had, including Dana Carvey’s wonderful; George H.W. Bush, Will Farrell’s George W., Â Chevy Chase’s bumbling Gerald Ford, andÂ an obese Dan Ackroyd’s Jimmy Carter. Considering that the ultimate Reagan parodist, Phil Hartman passed away several years ago, the team did an incredible job in getting Jim Carrey to step into Hartmans’ shoes, as Reagan. Hartman would have been proud.
What is Funny or Die? I will let them explain it for themselves:
“Funny Or Die was created by Gary Sanchez Productions (Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy) and a bunch of Silicon Valley dudes and ladies who drive Hondas and watch old episodes of Babylon Five. Michael Kvamme, an aspiring young comedian, came up with a concept for a new kind of comedy site and told his dad, Mark Kvamme of Sequoia Capital to write a check. Randy Adams, a Silicon Valley serial entrepreneur, signed on to handle design and implementation. Now, Funny Or Die has offices in Japan, Madagascar and Bahn, nine full time lobbyists in Washington and an elite private security force consisting of four hundred soldiers and six attack helicopters.”
