By now you've probably watched a video or two over at the Funny or Die website (our own Patrick Walsh has a gem up there as we speak). The site, created by Adam McKay and Will Ferrell, specializes in promoting comedic shorts, uploaded by users, who then try to spread the word and get their short as many votes as possible. The highest rated shorts -- or the shorts with the most buzz -- have a special section reserved on the site, and a fraction of those often wind up in Will Ferrell or Adam McKay's own top picks of the week. For the casual internet surfer, there's a ton of funny stuff on there -- stuff that's sometimes created by Ferrell and McKay themselves (see: The Landlord series) -- and now that successful duo has added a new partner to their team: Judd Apatow.

Apatow has already used the site to promote his viral marketing videos for Knocked Up and Superbad, and now it looks like he'll be coming onboard as another creative head -- a comedic mastermind, if you will. The three have already shot and uploaded a short of their own, announcing Apatow's involvement, which you can view here (or after the jump). In it, Apatow insists that he wants to add more hardcore porn to the website, while McKay and Ferrell argue against the idea. It's a little long, but pretty damn funny. I assume this means we'll be seeing shorts exclusively created by Apatow and his clan arrive on the site soon, some of which I'm sure will feature Ferrell and/or Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill ... you name em'. I think it's great that the current leaders in big-screen comedy have banded together in an attempt to produce the funniest stuff out there. Can't wait to see what they have in store for us down the line ...
