Will Ferrell and Adam McKay launch 11-episode retrospective on 10 years of Funny or Die

“It was 2007, and at this point, the Internet was basically just a place for perverts to talk dirty to each other,” says writer/director Adam McKay.

“It was rubble,” added comedy star Will Ferrell. “It was just a vast field of rubble.”

Enter Saturday Night Live alums McKay and Ferrell, and their idea to make some funny videos, starting with McKay’s 2-year-old daughter, Pearl, portraying Ferrell’s nasty landlord.

It’s now the 10th anniversary of Funny or Die, and McKay and Ferrell are reminiscing with stories and looks at highlights from the past decade of the online comedy platform. They’ll release 11 episodes, one new one each week. Here’s the debut. Roll it!
