“White House West”

Will Ferrell’s new video for liberal advocacy group Americans Coming Together, entitled “A Message From White House West“, is simply hilarious. I’ve seen a lot of these Web movies, and this is one of the very few whose production values and entertainment value strike me as being good enough to have been worth the investment required to make it in the first place.

It remains to be seen how it will do for them as a list-builder, though, considering that the sign-up appeal that’s attached to it is for a pretty ridiculous petition asking the FCC to require proof of factual accuracy before allowing a political commercial to air — a proposal that would be pretty patently unconstitutional. Come on, guys, you can do better than that.

Still, the video is a must-see.
