Following a demand from Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) for a live feed of the BP oil spill to be made publicly available on the web, BP said they would release the feed. It is now shown on the website of Markey’s Select Committee on Energy Independent and Global Warming.
“This may be BP’s footage, but it’s America’s ocean. Now anyone will be able to see the real-time effects the BP spill is having on our ocean,” said Rep. Markey, who conducted a briefing today with independent scientists where he reiterated the call for a video feed. “This footage will aid analysis by independent scientists blocked by BP from coming to see the spill.”
THE BANNEN WAY is the highly-anticipated, sexy, fast-paced series starring Mark Gantt (“Ocean’s Eleven”); Vanessa Marcil ("Lipstick Jungle," "Las Vegas"); Gabriel Tigerman (“Supernatural”); Michael Ironside ("Terminator Salvation,” Total Recall," “Smallville”); Academy-Award® nominee Robert Forster (“Jackie Brown,” “Heroes”); and special guest star, Academy-Award® nominee Michael Lerner (“Entourage,” "Elf," “Barton Fink”).
Will Ferrell and his 2 year-old co-star Pearl from FunnyorDie.com's award-winning video "The Landlord," will reunite once again in "Good Cop, Baby Cop," an exclusive new video premiering Monday, June 25 at (8:00 PM) on Funny or Die
, the funniest place on the web. In the video, Ferrell portrays "Angel," a hard-nosed criminal who refuses to cooperate with the police, leaving them no choice but to call in their toughest lieutenant -- a baby cop, known in the precinct as "The Confession Machine."
Funny or Die is a new video website that launched in April of 2007 and is already one of the most visited comedy sites on the web. A key ingredient of the site's success is its focus on a new genre of content: the raw and experimental look and feel of user-generated video, turbocharged with celebrity talent. "The Landlord," a video featuring Funny or Die founders Will Ferrell and Adam McKay has been viewed over 35 million times.
"Good Cop, Baby Cop" marks Pearl's farewell performance. The 2 year-old, who rose to stardom following "The Landlord's" debut on Funny or Die this past April, is retiring.
"My ventures as an actor on the internet have been rewarding and spiritually fulfilling, but now I must look to broader challenges as I approach my 26th month," says Pearl. "I shall always reflect upon these days with much fondness, and also, I have no idea what I just said, and I want banana-nana and the upside down show."
The full 4 minute 3 second video "Good Cop Baby Cop" can only be seen at Funny or Die.
