I ran it last night, but I’m running it again today, because it’s just that good.
And now the folks over at FOD are saying that Lindsay was in on the joke — in fact, doing the spoof was her idea.
“She wanted to do a Funny or Die video with all the stuff that everyone’s saying,” director Eric Appel tells Us. “She wanted to respond to it in a funny way, show that she gets it.”
Lohan reached out to Will Ferrell’s manager Wednesday about shooting a spoof. By Thursday, the team was pitching her ideas. On Friday, they had a script written. They filmed the one-and-a-half-minute clip in under two hours on Saturday.
“She came up with the stuff about being a threat to all security guards — she improvised while doing it,” he says. “She threw in a bunch of fun, funny stuff.”
The actress also holds up a cover of Us Weekly, which Appel says, “was a last minute thing. We all came up with the idea collectively and sent someone to the store to buy one. It was her idea to say, ‘I’m so alone’ directly into the camera.”
The director complimented her professionalism and acting skills, which is something you don’t hear a lot of these days. “She came in, did her thing, was really professional,” Appel says. “People forget Lindsay Lohan’s, like, a good actress. There’s so much attention [to everything she does], but…you forget this girl has really good comic timing.”
On a side note — and one that pertains specifically to Lindsay — the homophobes over at eHarmony were recently forced to launch a same-sex dating site as part of a settlement with New Jersey’s Civil Rights Division. More on that over at our sister site, Zelda Lily.
