Funny Or Die

Funny Or Die is a comedy video website that combines user generated content with original, exclusive content. Celebrities, up-and-coming comedians and regular users alike can all put up stuff they think is funny. At the same time, the site hopes to eliminate all the junk that people have to pick through to find good videos. Users vote on what videos are funny and what videos deserve to die.

The site uses a proprietary player that can be embedded on other sites.
