Taking a page out of Matt Damon's book for combining humor with advocacy, Robert Redford and Will Ferrell have just released a very funny PSA urging people to help reconnect the Colorado River with the Gulf of Mexico.
In a twist, both men have very different plans for making this happen. Whereas Redford's approach is to raise the water level of the Colorado via his RaiseTheRiver.org campaign, Ferrell instead wants to move the ocean to where the Colorado currently dries up.
"Do we really need more river?" Ferrell ponders in front of some terrible blue screen imagery. "Let's move it. Let's reconnect this thing the old fashioned way. The American way. The way to fix this thing is to send money so that myself and some other scientists can begin the process of moving a small portion of the ocean back toward the wet part of the river. From there to there. No go to MoveTheOcean.org and send me money."
Things get decidedly more heated from there with hilarious jabs between the two actors.
