Will Ferrell's production company launches video site

the landlordI recently linked to a comedic short featuring Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (Anchorman, Talladega Nights). The short comes from FunnyorDie.com, a new comedy video site from Ferrell and McKay's production company, Gary Sanchez Productions.

The short, titled "The Landlord," has received over two million hits, and other vids from established comedians and actors will also begin to pop up on the site. However, most of the videos will be uploaded YouTube-fashion by regular folks like you and me. The main difference between this site and YouTube is that only those videos deemed worthy by other users will survive, and the ones that aren't so funny will be banished to a section of the site known as "the Crypt."

Another comedy video site worth checking out it is Super Deluxe, which we've mentioned a few times already. Super Deluxe also features videos from comedians such as Eugene Mirman, Dave Foley and Richard Belzer, as well as user-generated videos.

Oh yeah, in case you were wondering: the little girl featured in "The Landlord" is Adam McKay's daughter.

That's cool except for the obnoxious design of their embedded video player. If you want to share their videos on your blog or somewhere else (as I did), they conveniently provide the code to do so. However, the video automatically starts playing when the site loads. This is particularly inconvenient on a blog, where it might be 3 or 4 posts down the page (or more) and will take a while for the reader to find.
