    A Bunch of Hilarious People Did a Table Read of Space Jam Last Month and We Are So Mad We Weren’t There

    Were you as devastated as we were when you found out that the rumors of a Space Jam sequel starring Kobe Bryant were all fake? Then you, like us, probably had very questionable taste during the '90s. Also, you'll wish you'd been at the UCB theater in Los Angeles to see this surprise table read of Space Jam last month.

    Funny Or Die Grants Creationists’ Wish For More Inclusion In Cosmos

    Some religious groups have complained that their scientifically unprovable opinions haven't been included on science show Cosmos. Thankfully Funny Or Die has stepped in with "Creationist Cosmos" a dead-on parody that lampoons the willful ignorance of creationists as well as Cosmos' Spaceship of the Imagination style cheesiness.

    President Obama Appeared on Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis

    President Obama appeared on the Funny or Die webseries Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis to promote Healthcare, and like any episode of the show it's absurd and hilarious. The main difference of course being that it happens to feature the President.

    Turns Out Funny or Die Was Behind the Hoverboard Hoax [Updated]

    The Internet has been all over the HUVr hoverboard hoax with its videos of celebrities like Tony Hawk floating through the air on a replica of the pink hoverboard from Back to the Future II. However, because the universe is a cold, indifferent place, it's assuredly not real, and it turns out Funny or Die was behind it.

    Alyssa Milano Releases Sex Tape… Because Syria?

    Alyssa Milano really wants you to understand what's going on in Syria, and she's taken an interesting approach to making sure you do. She's released a sex tape on Funny or Die, which as you can probably guess since it's posted on a comedy site isn't a real sex tape, but you will learn things while people make sex noises.

    Deranged Sorority Girl, Kneel Before Zod! Michael Shannon Reads That Crazy Email [Video]

    Michael Shannon is an intimidating guy. That's probably why he was cast as General Zod in Man of Steel. He has a certain disturbing vibe about him. The emails of clearly deranged college sorority girls are disturbing on their own, but are made even more so when they are read by Michael Shannon -- and it's NSFW at all, in case you didn't realize.

    Funny or Die Beat Everyone to the Steve Jobs Biopic Punch

    Sometimes it's better to be first than to be the best, and while that's far from the philosophy displayed by Apple during Steve Jobs' life, it seems to be the one comedy site Funny or Die took when churning out their Jobs biopic iSteve. It's available online right now, ahead of its competitors jOBS and Steve Jobs.

    Watch Mr. Tasty Settle a Bar Fight in This Pete & Pete Reunion (Probably NSFW)

    The Adventures of Pete & Pete 20th Anniversary Reunion from Michael C Maronna
    The Adventures of Pete & Pete is one of the greatest achievements in the history of television. To celebrate 20th anniversary of the show, the cast has been making some public appearances together. This Funny or Die video shows catches up with the Petes, Endless Mike, Artie the Strongest Man in the World, and Mr. Tasty. It also has Paul F. Tompkins, and a special appearance by Polaris singer Mark Mulcahy. If anyone needs me I'll be reliving my childhood with some Pete & Pete DVDs.

    The 1982 Tron Holiday Special

    Jeff Bridges may not have been on board for this recently unearthed 1982 Tron holiday special which is not actually real, but at least they got such hot contemporary stars as Jefferson Starship, Welcome Back, Kotter's Gabe Kaplan, and Fraggle Rock. (FoD via Soup)

    Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman Report Atlanta Weather

    We've been really impressed by the well-put-together marketing campaign for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, which has been ill-received by smartypantses like The New Yorker's Anthony Lane and New York Magazine's David Edelstein, but which still has a decent 78% Fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes. And it was apparently very well-received at Comic-Con. But this ... well, huh. Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman randomly showed up on this morning's Good Day Atlanta to report on the weather, of all things.

    James Franco and Bill Hader Wish Sam Raimi Happy Birthday, Spider-Man 4 Style

    Any geek will know, of course, that October 23 is Sam Raimi's birthday. Why then, have James Franco and Bill Hader released this Spider-Man 4 viral video for Funny or Die, in honor of the director's birthday ... today? For one it's certainly topical, with rumors swirling around about who will be the next Spider-Man in the upcoming Marc Webb reboot. And two, I ask: Why not wish him a very early birthday? I've been a fan of Franco's Funny or Die videos for a while; that he's willing to be self-deprecating always makes for a good laugh. In the video, Franco confronts his inner Willem Dafoe over being killed off in the third film. Little known trivia: Hader in fact worked as a PA on the first film. He also does a killer Dafoe laugh impression. Video below:

    Funny or Die Gives the Original Karate Kid an Intervention

    It's getting to the point where "interventions" of has-been film and TV stars are such a cliche that parodies of them have become cliche as well. However, perhaps because of residual hatred for the new Karate Kid remake, the new Funny or Die video featuring an intervention of the original Kid himself, Ralph Macchio, somehow ends up working big time. The video features the 80s star's family (including "actress who's been showing up everywhere recently," June Diane Raphael, as his wife) and "friends" gathering together to persuade him he needs to stop...being so nice. We then get treated to a series of hilarious visual gags including a shot of Macchio cutting a pile of coke into a smiley face.
