Oh man. This is so over-the-top and ridiculous that it’s actually funny, unlike many of the other ‘Funny or Die’ videos that we’ve ran here. Remember Vanessa Hudgen’s FOD? God. The worst. Rachel Bilson‘s? Equally bad, if not slightly worse. The only one that ever really made me chuckle even a little bit was the one that featured Courtney Stodden. That one was alright, I suppose. At least when you compare it to Vanessa’s and Rachel’s and, of course, we can’t forget
The thing about this “trailer,” however, is that it’s completely believable. I mean, I could honestly see this movie being made. All they have to do is build around the preview. It’s all there, right in front of them. It’s like ‘Battleship’ meets ‘Independence Day’ meets horrible, craptastic SyFy made-for-TV movies
THAT I LOVE like ‘Seattle Superstorm‘.
Can we get a hold of someone who can really make this happen? Please?

As I’m sure you remember, Kirk Cameron is not a fan of the gays. He basically thinks that they’re all going to ruin our society, and that they’ll be the end of our civilization. I think, and I don’t want to put words in Kirk’s mouth or anything, that he believes that if gay people are allowed to marry just like straight people, then dark clouds will permanently block the sun from the earth, and there will be earthquakes and floods and all sorts of natural disasters, and dragons that have lied dormant in caves for years will spring forth into the land and wreak havoc on us all. You know, something like that. Those selfish gay people, bringing back the dragons just so they can have equal rights. The nerve!
But a bunch of Kirk’s fellow former child stars disagree with Kirk’s totally valid viewpoints. Enough that they all got together and made a Funny or Die video to make a stand against him.
I’ll admit it, I did giggle a couple of times. But then I remembered that Kirk has such a tender soul: remember when he got so upset when not everyone agreed with his statements? He was sad that we couldn’t “debate these things with greater love and respect,” and wanted people to know and trust that his “life’s mission is to love all people.” I can’t even imagine what this video is doing to him right now. He must be beside himself.
Why can’t people just let this go? Shame on you, child stars! Kirk has never been anything but loving and kind while explaining why gay people are detrimental and destructive to society, and you have to go and make a video like this? For shame!

Oh, and Eva Mendes. Because Eva Mendes is dating Ryan Gosling and she’s definitely sleeping with him because they’re serious enough that she shows up for a quick appearance in this video with him. Oh no, I didn’t just ruin this, did I?
I highly doubt it. Because few things are as lovable as Funny or Die’s Drunk History series, few works of Christmas art are as well known as “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,” and few things are as creepy as the thought of Jim Carrey dressed as Santa Claus and breaking into your house. This video has everything.

And I’m barely exaggerating when I say “all the celebrities.” There’s Ben Stiller, Matt Damon, Sean Penn, Kristen Wiig, Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Jack Black, and Kevin Spacey. Did I miss anyone? Oh, Bill Clinton. Goodness

Too soon? No, really, is this too soon, I’m not really good at gauging this sort of thing. Personally, I’m a believer of the power of laughter during rough times, and I’m also a believer of the power of Will Ferrell anytime, so I loved this video. What about you guys?

All right, I know I’m a few days late with this. I’m aware of that. But I’m still a little shaken up from the tornadoes that ripped through my town and, you know, my region of the U.S. last night, so I think you guys can cut me a little slack here. Also, it’s Jeff Goldblum, and you can’t not love Jeff Goldblum.
