Funny or Die is known for their hilarious videos — many of which feature well-known actors in Saturday Night Live-like sketches.
Recently, the site released a new video directed by Ron Howard that reunited a bunch of SNL alumni and some special guests for a message about the Consumer Financial Protection Agency. The hopes here is that this message will reach the eyes of President Barack Obama and help him with some majorly important decisions.
SNL is renowned for always having someone who creates a comical caricature of whomever the President is at the time for use in the many skits that will be written using that person. Currently, that job is owned by Fred Armisen, who portrays Obama whenever a skit for him is penned.

In this skit, Armisen is joined by Maya Rudolph as his wife Michelle Obama for the current White House inhabitants. They’re also joined by the likes of Will Ferrell, who is returning to do his famous George W. Bush character; Dana Carvey as his pops, George H.W. Bush Sr.; Darrell Hammond bringing back Bill Clinton; as well as Dan Aykroyd as Jimmy Carter, Chevy Chase as Gerald Ford, and a very special appearance by Jim Carrey as Ronald Reagan.
As far as funny goes, this video isn’t the best of the best. I chuckled a couple of times — usually at Ferrell’s Bush impression — but not much more than that. The video is more of a comical approach at political action, and that shows in the lacking amount of laughter; but even so, it’s worth watching just to see all of these guys together!
