Will Ferrell: The Funny or Die Godfather
Countless celebrities have saved face, gotten comedy cred, and upped their popularity through Funny or Die videos. But lest we forget, the Web site was launched into immediate success with Will Ferrell's vid "The Landlord."
Back in the old days (i.e., 2007) a movie star acting in a Web video was completely unheard of. Now, it's their meat and potatoes (or at least their A1 sauce). The latest Ferrell vid, a health care PSA spoof, was an instant success with a good cause, and brought in a score of celeb cameos. The featured celebs should know, though, that one day he'll be calling in the favor when he's attempting to fill out the cast of "Land of the Lost 2."
