SERJ TANKIAN And PERRY FARRELL Show Up In New 'Funny Or Die' Clip

According to The Pulse Of Radio, SYSTEM OF A DOWN singer Serj Tankian and JANE'S ADDICTION frontman Perry Farrell both make appearances in a new video from the team at Funny Or Die. The clip is a fake commercial for a fictional reality show called "U B Da Judge", where celebrities compete to be the next judge on a reality singing competition. In addition to Tankian and Farrell "trying out" for the show, the skit features auditions from Meat Loaf, Rebecca Black, Debbie Gibson, Warren G and others.

Farrell tries hard to sell himself as the "rocker" component of the show, saying, "You always need the rocker. I don't see why I couldn't do what Steven Tyler's doing," before doing his best Tyler impersonation.

Meanwhile, Tankian is much aggressive and makes fun of his own public persona as an activist and social commentator, saying, "The true light beings, past life, do not judge. They ask you for your experience, and they say, 'Where do you want to go next?' And you judge! What the fuck?"

JANE'S ADDICTION is wrapping up its Theatre Of The Escapiststour and plays Thursday night (May 31) in Tucson, Arizona.

The group has been touring in support of its first all-new album in more than eight years, "The Great Escape Artist".

Tankian will release his third solo outing, "Harakiri", on July 10 and will re-team with SYSTEM OF A DOWN later this summer for an East Coast run with DEFTONES.

Funny or Die is a comedy video web site founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's production company, Gary Sanchez Productions. The site contains exclusive material from famous contributors such as Judd Apatow and James Franco, and also has its own team which creates original material for the site. Many clips on the site feature well-known actors like Charlie Sheen, Ryan Gosling, Patrick Stewart, Daniel Radcliffe and Charlize Theron.
