How about that proposed Consumer Financial Protection Agency.Submit To Propeller
What, you haven't heard of the Consumer Financial Protection Agency? Well, the folks at FunnyOrDie.com want to fix that. They've teamed up for "Presidential Reunion," a star-studded sketch released Wednesday aimed at calling attention to the need for such a board.
In the bit, a clearly flummoxed (and still heavy-smoking) President Barack Obama retires for the evening with first lady Michelle (Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph), unable to leave the country's weighty financial matters behind. "I'm just tired of getting my butt kicked from both sides on this," Armisen's Faux-bama says.
Once in dreamland, he's visited by a cast of comedians reprising their "Saturday Night Live" roles as presidential impersonators: Will Ferrell as George W. Bush, Darrell Hammond as Bill Clinton, Dana Carvey as George H.W. Bush, Dan Aykroyd as Jimmy Carter and Chevy Chase as Gerald Ford. They all urge Obama to make such legislation a reality. The video is directed by Ron Howard.
Jim Carrey is the lone non-"SNL" alum in the video, playing Ronald Reagan. Phil Hartman, the best-known Reagan impersonator on "SNL," was shot to death by his wife in a 1998 murder-suicide.
The video was shot over 15 hours Sunday in Van Nuys, Calif., and is thought to mark the first time all living "SNL" presidential impersonators had gathered for a sketch. It quickly went viral, heating up Facebook and Twitter fast enough to make you say "Conan who?"
