It's Barack Obama, along with the last six presidents - at least in the image of former SNL stars Will Ferrell, Jim Carrey, Dana Carvey, Darrell Hammond, Chevy Chase, and Dan Aykroyd. They're all urging the prez to push hard for a Consumer Financial Protection Agency. Ron Howard directed this 6-minute skit for the online comedy site Funny or Die. It was shot in Van Nuys on Sunday. From the Wash Post:
The site is partnered with Americans for Financial Reform, "a coalition of more than 200 national, state and local consumer, labor, investor, civil rights, community, small business, and senior citizen organizations." And that group is partnered with Americans for Fairness in Lending, which has been conducting a call-in campaign since March 1 around the proposed agency.
