Just one month ago, California voters passed Prop 8 which banned same-sex marriages. Protesters including disenfranchised gays and lesbians, many already married, flooded the streets of L.A., picketing and denouncing the state’s vote. Yesterday though, Hollywood heavyweights joined hands in song to show their feelings about the ordeal.
The geniuses at Funny or Die released a viral video that promises to drum up a lot of talk this week. The cast of the video includes Jack Black (who plays Jesus), Neil Patrick Harris, John C. Reilly, Andy Richter, Maya Rudolph, Margaret Cho, Rashida Jones and others. The hilarious short was thought up and written by Hairspray composer Marc Shaiman and directed by Adam Shenkman, also of Hairspray. To see if Jack Black was able to unite all in his holy turn as Jesus, head on over to www.funnyordie.com.
