Mass Interactive: Funny Or Die


Funny Or Die is a comedy video site containing both professional content from big name talent and user-generated content (think YouTube for funny). Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are behind what could be considered a farm system for discovering talent for their company, Gary Sanchez Productions.

Trendcentral notes that although the site is still in beta, "it has already become one of the fastest growing content-based websites in history so far (faster than YouTube)".

The first video, The Landlord, has already garned over 2 million views (to date) in only a few days of going live.

*"IN BETA" IS RIGHT...half the embeddable links don't work, and it don't xfer to my Vod:Pod...hope IT at Funny or Die works it out. Fast. Cuz tech glitches just ain't funny.

Snap. My buddy just sent me a link to a video on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQ9bPBwfE-Y. Copy and pasted to see what happens. Or I'll just tell you: "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Funny or Die, Inc." Now I don't know what he sent. Double Not Funny.
