'SNL's' Presidential Reunion Video Hits Funny or Die

Nearly 30 years of one of American television's most storied and beloved traditions (i.e. portraying our presidents as moronic simpletons whose inability to tie their own shoes could send the country to Defcon 3) came to a glorious fountain of awesomeness at Funnyordie.com.

The website premiered a new public service announcement on federal finance laws directed by Ron Howard in the form of a very funny "Presidential Reunion" sketch that features the likes of Will Ferrell, Darrell Hammond, Dana Carvey, Dan Aykroyd and even Chevy Chase reviving their classic impressions of former presidents including (respectively) George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George Bush Sr., Jimmy Carter and (the most hilarious in my opinion) Gerald Ford who come together to help the beleaguered Barack Obama, played by Fred Armisen. Jim Carrey also stepped in the room to play Ronald Reagan probably because Randy Quaid is nuttier than a Payday bar these days.

Oh, that's right. Randy Quaid played Reagan for a year before Phil Hartman made him unforgettable.

Honestly, I wanted to like this -- I'm the target audience for it and I'm sympathetic to the cause -- but this simply wasn't very funny. And when I first saw the stills of Dan Aykroyd before watching it I thought "What's Carroll O'Connor doing in this?"

But any opportunity to see Maya Rudolph is a good one.
