It's a "Saturday Night Live" Presidential reunion.
A slew of "SNL" players who have impersonated U.S. presidents joined up for a Ron Howard-directed video to support Americans for Financial Reform. Jim Carrey also gets in the act.
In the Funny or Die video, former presidents come to the White House bedroom to meet up with President Obama (Fred Armisen) and First Lady Michelle Obama (Maya Rudolph):
– Will Ferrell as George Bush
– Darrell Hammond as Bill Clinton
– Dan Aykroyd as Jimmy Carter
– Dana Carvey as George H. W. Bush
– Chevy Chase as Gerald Ford
– Jim Carrey as Ronald Reagan
The website also has a “Making of …” video.
The video ends with a message urging viewers to call their senators to support legislation pushing financial reform.
"The banks have millions of dollars to get their message out," the message says. "But Your speech is free. Contact your senators about the CFPA. Nothing annoys them more than having to do their jobs."
The video comes as Congress prepares to consider whether to create an independent Consumer Financial Protection Agency.
Americans for Financial Reform is a coalition of more than 200 national, state and local consumer, labor, investor, civil rights, community, small business and senior citizen organizations, pushing Congress to act now on financial reform.
