Funny Or Die’s Take On A Throwback Tombstone Pizza Commercial Is HILARIOUS

You guys remember those campy Tombstone Pizza commercials back in the ’90s? You know, the one where someone’s about to bite the dust and then gets asked the famous line:

What do you want on your TOMBSTONE?

To which the hero would spout the toppings to the popular frozen pizza brand.

Funny Or Die released a throwback trailer that recaptures the spirit of the originals, and we have to admit, it’s pretty awesome. The video stars actor Oliver Muirhead as he narrowly escapes death while requesting his favorite pizza.

Check it out above.

The throwback promotes Tombstone’s new Roadhouse line of pizzas, which comes in four varieties. These are: Bring on the Meat (pepperoni, Italian sausage, Genoa salami), Double Down Deluxe (pepperoni, Italian sausage, red and green peppers, caramelized onions), Piled High Pepperoni (lots of pepperoni), and Two Meat Matchup (pepperoni and Italian sausage).

Roadhouse pizzas are now available at grocery retailers nationwide for about $7.99. Each pizza takes about 25 minutes to bake.

The LGBT Empire Strikes Back: ‘Best Gay Bar in the World’ Releases the ‘Chick-For-Gay’ Sandwich

That’s it. The gloves are comin’ off.

Adding to the already massive pro-vs.-anti-gay outcry inspired by Chick-fil-A COO Dan Cathy’s controversial Baptist Press interview, West Hollywood California’s Abbey Food & Bar has just released its new chicken sandwich, cutely dubbed the “Chick-for-Gay”.

Named the “Best Gay Bar in the World” by MTV two years running, The Abbey promises that 100% of the proceeds made from the sandwich’s sales will go to the American Foundation for Equal Rights, according to the press release.

The $5, eight ounce sandwich features a breaded boneless chicken breast, served with pickles on a toasted buttered bun, and is set to be available through presidential elections this November.

The Abbey’s founder David Cooley explains:

With the upcoming election, even our lunch choices are a political statement. If corporations have the right to spend unlimited amounts of money on an agenda of hate, we as an LGBT business community have to spend money supporting Marriage Equality,” he said. “If corporations have the same free speech rights as people, the people have to exercise their First Amendment right at the cash register by patronizing businesses that support our agenda and stop giving money to those that oppose equality.

On the event page for today’s Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee made a similar point by asking attendees to come out to their local franchise to “support free speech.”

The Chick-fil-A Company thus far hasn’t thrown itself for or against either side of the most recent flame wars, except to say that it is not responsible for their promotions. In fact, it has been suggested that since the beginning of the PR firestorm, the company has been trying to save face and lie low, but it seems like not everyone is so willing to let them off the hook.

Since the infamous interview was released about two weeks ago, consumer approval for the chicken chain has gone down, according to information released by polling site YouGov.

The business world has seen what happens when an organization supports the LGBT community — which is that the LGBT community and its allies will support it,” Director of News and Field Media at GLAAD Aaron McQuade said. “Now we have empirical proof of what happens when a company rejects the LGBT community. The LGBT community and its allies will reject it.

Looking back to two weeks ago, it seems a bit hard now to swallow the fact that so much political outrage and gravity can be attributed to eating a measly chicken sandwich, but as long as this whole affair is still going strong, might as well enjoy the show.

A recent video parody by Funny or Die features actor John Goodman dressed as KFC’s Colonel Sanders jumping at the chance to promote his own chicken chain as gay-friendly—or at the very least, purely and unapologetically capitalistic:

“Hell I don’t actually give a shit,” Goodman/Sanders slyly admits near the clip’s end, “Gay or not, you’re just a bunch of big old money mounds…” As we rightly should be.

God Bless America.

Funny or Die: Drive-Thru [VIDEO]

Funny or Die showcases a pretty funny take on the Ryan Gosling movie “Drive.” This “trailer” is more or less a shot for shot reinterpretation of the movie with a delicious twist. I recommending re-watching the original trailer first in order to better appreciate this —

“Charlie Sheen’s Winning Recipes” Cooking Show Debuts Its First Episode

Can’t get enough of Charlie Sheen? As much as we think his antics, “winning” phrases and media coverage is starting to become a bit stale, he catches off guard with his own cooking show, aptly titled, “Winning Recipes”.

The show debuted earlier today, proclaiming that this episode “shows you how to cook using all of the power of a warlock.” The video was constructed, hosted and publicized through FunnyOrDie.com, because we’re guessing that Food Network wasn’t to keen on giving him a 30-minute slot of his own.

Owen Wilson Talks ‘Pie’

First of all let’s get one thing straight, Owen Wilson is the man. I can’t recall any role I don’t like him in. So when you put Owen on Funny or Die, and have him talk about ‘Pie’ it’s bound to be good. Blueberry pie, Chocolate cake, Angel food cake, Apple pie; doesn’t matter what flavor, they are all good. (Thx Wallychamp)
