These days more and more celebs are jumping on the comedy web video boat with Funny Or Die, from Katie Couric to Tara Reid and everyone in between. In their latest hit, Funny Or Die brings together Billy Crystal and Helen Mirren in When Harry Met Sally 2. When Harry Met Sally 2 takes place years after the original, when Sally is dead and gone and Harry meets his second soul mate, who just so happens to be…a vampire!
In addition to Billy Crystal and Helen Mirren, a boatload of other stars jumped onboard for this parody, including Rob Reiner, Mike Tyson, Maya Rudolph, Adam Scott, Rob Riggle and Mike O’Malley. The concept of the video is that Billy Crystal and Rob Reiner pitch the idea for the sequel to a Hollywood studio. They go for it…saying it’s genius. But they’ve just got one little tweak…that Harry fall in love with a Vampiress. There’s nothing funnier than vampires in a retirement home. Except maybe…zombies in a retirement home!
Billy Crystal joined Twitter on Tuesday to coincide with the launch of the Funny Or Die Video, garnering over 13,000 followers so far. Yesterday he tweeted to let the world know that the video was up. Check it out below and let us know what you think. How does the sequel compare to the original When Harry Met Sally? Oh, how I wish this was a real full-length film.
