Video: Prop 8 — The Musical

Funny or Die has found another gear of late, not just incorporating celebrities into funny and informative short online videos, but stretching the form to include original short films and this new effort by award-winning composer (and person you should thank for the songs in both the South Park movie and Hairspray) Marc Shaiman, "Prop 8 — The Musical." Would it have made more of a difference if it had debuted before Election Day? Who's to say. But watch it now. Jack Black is Jesus Christ, superstar. So to speak.
