Funny or Die Launches YouTube channel5 Nov, 2009 By: Jordan Harrison
Funny or Die (funnyordie.com) CEO Dick Glover has announced the launch of the Web site’s very own YouTube-branded channel. Known for comedy-driven and topical viral hits, and created by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, Funny or Die will provide a selection of its videos from funnyordie.com.
“We are very excited to distribute a subset of our videos through YouTube,” said Dick Glover. “As one of the premier names in comedy, it seemed like the right time to launch a Funny or Die branded channel,” he added.
All Funny or Die produced videos will continue to be premiered on its proprietary Web site and will then be made available on Funny or Die’s YouTube channel for a limited time.
To kick off the channel, co-founders Ferrell and McKay will appear in a special video and be guest editors for YouTube’s Home Page “Spotlight” section.
