Blake Griffin to intern at “Funny or Die”
Young 22 year old NBA dunk specialist Blake Griffin has just landed an internship at “Funny or Die”, a comedy website co-founded by comedian Will Ferrell and Adam Mckay. Griffin arrived at the LA offices on Tuesday to start a three days of work in video production. He will help write, shoot, edit, and edit in several videos for the site. He will not receive special treatment for his b-ball celeb status. As Rookie of the Year last year with the LA Clippers, he dominated the dunk contest with a curtain call dunk over a Kia Optima, had many highlight reel dunks throughout the year, and averaged 22.5 ppg and 12.1 rpg. He has a knack for comedy, and loves Will Farrell, so he should be a perfect fit at Funny or Die. Check it out!
”Just to get an inside look at how things are run here is exciting to me,” Griffin said by phone Tuesday. ”I don’t know what interns at Funny Or Die are like, but I’m about to find out, I guess.”
Griffin counts ”Old School,” ”Wedding Crashers” and ”Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” among his favorite movies. On Funny Or Die, he likes Zach Galifianakis’ mock interview series ”Between Two Ferns.”
”I’ll go see a bad comedy over a good action movie any day,” Griffin said.
”We’re going to put him to work,” said Mike Farah, president of production. ”He’s shooting a series of videos, and he’s also coming to meetings. He’s basically doing everything that an intern does.”
”I don’t mind doing stuff like that,” said Griffin. ”It’s not a problem for me.” – foxsports
