Jesus. The kid's 2. Unlike Dakota Fanning and her brand new rape movie, little Pearl will not remember a thing.

Yeah, for a video that looks like it took all of 40 minutes and 10 dollars to, um, "write", "direct", "shoot", and "edit"(oh, can't forget the labor for uploading), I hardly think that the child exploitation ethics of Hollywood apply.  I think the actress playing Pearl will be more than appropriately compensated for this appearance, seeing as she's the producer's daughter, who will reap the benefits of his evil hollywood comedy empire for the rest of her life.  Obviously Kim Masters hasn't heard the intro to Ghostface's "Whip You With A Strap", or else her panties would be in such a serious bunch you'd have to call her Carol Brady.

Though the two-year old is troubling, sure, it's the complete lack of humor in general which caught my attention--which has never failed to catch my attention and horrify me when I'm made to sit through yet another horrible Will Ferrel bit, regardless of if it's a movie, SNL, or now this...  I remember having abandoned SNL in the early 90's or so, and later watching in disbelief friends who's senses of humor I respect shamelessly howl at the Spartan Cheerleader stuff in 96' or so...  To each his own--and I went into Ricky Bobby ready to cast aside --ready to look anew, mainly a result of knowing that Tom Scharpling's a proponent of Ferrel...but I've got to say, I don't get it.

The Spartan Cheerleader stuff always sucked, but I always blame that on Cheri O'Terry or however you spell her name.  I like Will Ferrell but he definitely benefited from being the one nominally funny guy in a desert of talent.
