Rachael Ray Gets a New Catchphrase on Funny or Die (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted May 23rd 2011 5:30PM
Rachael Ray on FunnyOrDie.comDoes Rachael Ray need a new catchphrase? Probably not, but the good folks at Funny or Die tried to find one for her anyway in a new video, which received its "world premiere" today on 'Rachael Ray' (weekdays, syndicated). The video featured actors playing marketing folks tossing out ideas for Ray's new catchphrase while Ray batted them down, one by one.

Some of the contenders? "Where's the beef?" "Mmm mmm goody foodie scrumptious time, I'm Rachael Ray, let's have dinner soon because my tummy is a-growling and it's already eight o'clock." Also, just the word "catchphrase."

In the end, Ray came up with the winner herself. "Shove It" is her choice, and it appeared with Ray's smiling image on the Jumbotron in Times Square at the end of the video. In the image, Ray is holding a bunch of carrots. We prefer "goody foodie scrumptious time."

Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. Have a Heart to Heart

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 15th 2010 9:02PM
I've always wondered what it would be like to watch George Bush Sr. and George Bush Jr. have a sit-down. It must the most awkward fly-on-the-wall conversation since King Richard III told Henry Stafford he was going to have to make some "cutbacks."

Now thanks to the people at Funny or Die, now I know. And knowing is half the battle.

The site released some cutting room floor footage from their recent "Presidential Reunion" PSA directed by Ron Howard featuring some funny, improvised dialogue between Dana Carvey and Will Ferrell as the presidential father and son.

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

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 4th 2010 8:45PM
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.

Holy 'Saturday Night Live' presidents reunion, Batman!

FunnyOrDie.com is famous for its riotous celebrity videos, but this one featuring current star Fred Armisen and 'SNL' veterans like Will Ferrell, Dana Carvey, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Darrell Hammond and Maya Rudolph, as well as an over-the-top performance by Jim Carrey, may take the cake.

In a dream, Armisen's Barack Obama is visited by Hammond as President Clinton, Carvey as President Bush Sr., Aykroyd as President Carter, Chase as President Ford, Ferrell as President Bush Jr and Carey as President Reagan.

'Funny or Die' Delves Into Drunk History (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 22nd 2010 7:47AM
Funny or Die, Drunk History, Will Ferrell, Don CheadleWe knew the 'Funny or Die Presents' (Sat., 12AM ET on HBO) guys would come up with a great way to teach kids about slavery. Have someone ingest two bottles of wine, then narrate the story in a drunken stupor, with Will Ferrell playing Abraham Lincoln and Don Cheadle as Frederick Douglas.

We're quite certain the video will end up in classrooms all across the country, and just think of the spin-off possibilities. Everything from the Wright Brothers to World War II could become a part of the Drunk History archives. Just think about it. That's all we ask.

Pee Wee Herman gets an iPad

I'm not going to lie to you. I'm a bit of a Machead and I REALLY want an iPad. That's why I'm super jealous of Pee-Wee Herman who brought one to the Playhouse in this "Funny or Die" video, even though he already has a robot and a talking screen, both of which Apple are probably developing into overpriced electronic gadgetry so they can suck more money out of my cramped, ink stained hands.

And just for fun, when you hear the word "iPad" in the following video, scream real loud. Ready? Let's try it!

Funny or Die Presents premieres next month

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 29th 2010 9:00AM
The comedy website that made the Internet its bitch aims to do the same to HBO.

Next month marks the premiere of Funny or Die Presents, an HBO sketch show from the creators of the revolutionary video comedy website created and founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. The trailer below isn't technically safe for work, so if your boss catches you watching it on the job, just threaten to stick the nearest sharp object right in his eye. That always works for me. Plus, the great thing is they've got two, so technically they won't go completely blind if they call your bluff.

Funny or Die Weighs in on Conan O'Brien

by Scott Harris, posted Jan 13th 2010 1:30PM
Traditionally, late night talk show hosts make their living mocking celebrity gossip and Hollywood drama. But when that drama involves those hosts themselves, who can we turn to for our comedy relief?

One answer: Funny or Die. The website, which was co-founded by Will Ferrell and which features humorous videos ranked by how much they make viewers laugh, has become one of the most popular comedy websites on the internet. So it's only fitting that they're taking on the same comedic institutions that helped inspire their brand of humor: the kings of the late night monologue, Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien.

Ladies of 'The View' Weigh in on MTV's 'Jersey Shore' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Dec 24th 2009 9:24AM
On yesterday's episode of 'The View,' the panel of hosts touched on allegations that MTV's controversial reality show 'Jersey Shore' portrays Italian-Americans in a bad light, and showed a Funny or Die clip of Alyssa Milano undergoing a makeup-induced transformation into a 'Jersey Shore' hoochie.

"It's insulting," Joy Behar said, who admits to not having seen the show. "Because I went to college to better myself, and then these idiots come out and make Italians looks bad."

Funny or DieIt's not TV ... it's Funny or Die.

Funny or Die, the site founded two years ago by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, is deep into filming for 12 half-hour episodes for HBO,

According to the New York Post, the site is reversing its stance on syndicating its content beyond the standalone Web site. "It will definitely get more viewership of our videos and, to us, that's the important thing -- we want the work that's created to be seen by as many people as possible," Dick Glover, the site's CEO, told the Post.

TV celebs touch each other's boobs for cancer research

by Brad Trechak, posted Sep 30th 2009 7:01PM
Funny or DieFunny or Die has up an amusing clip starring a group of television and movie stars including Alyson Hannigan, Emily Deschanel, Kat McPhee, Minka Kelly and Jaime King in which they are at a slumber party together. One of them feels a lump on her breast and starts to panic. The issue gets resolved but not before the paparazzi show up to get some rather embarrassing photos of the group.

The sketch was co-written by King and Taryn Southern and is sponsored by Her Energy in support of breast cancer research. The entire six-part series is called "Tit for Tat." Let's hear it for amusing double-entendres.

Still, it's for a good cause and stars a plethora of television personalities (including the ever-cute Ms. Hannigan whom I've adored since her days on Buffy the Vampire Slayer), so it's worth a look even if you're just a perv who likes watching female celebrities grope each other. Video is after the jump.

G.I.Joe as it should have been

by Brad Trechak, posted Aug 13th 2009 10:28AM
Olivia WildeI don't know how many of you caught the G.I. Joe movie this past weekend that is based on the cartoon and toy franchise of the 80's. I didn't, but even without seeing it, I think this sketch from Funny or Die called The Ballad of G.I.Joe is far better. Even the costumes are more accurate (if a little, but not much, cheesier).

Of course, there are quite a few television and movie celebrities making up the cast: Tony Hale, Olivia Wilde (pictured as the Baroness), Alan Tudyk and Julianne Moore, to name a few. And whatever you do, stick around for the end of the song to see a special guest star that SHOULD have been in the movie.

I remember watching the cartoon while I was a young lad, and it seems obvious that the creators of this cute sketch knew the show, possibly even more than the people who made the movie. Video is after the jump.

Will Arnett and Pete Serafinowicz really like each other

by Annie Wu, posted Jun 16th 2009 5:28PM
Serafinowicz and ArnettFor those of you not quite familiar with Peter Serafinowicz, take a few minutes to get to know his work (or his Twitter, if that's what you're into, you social media nerd). He has worked on Spaced, Shaun of the Dead and his own programs, The Peter Serafinowicz Show and Look Around You (the first season is must-see). Fun fact: He also voiced Darth Maul. Double fun fact: He's married to Sarah Alexander, known for her various comedic roles in shows like Green Wing and Coupling.

So what happens when you take these two and throw them in with America's own comedy power couple, Will Arnett and Amy Poehler? Actually, I'm still not entirely sure after watching this video. See for yourself.
