According to Us magazine, the trio appear as stars in a Hollywood flick and there’s a kissing scene with Jack and Cloris! Hell yeah.

Prop 8 musical starring a bunch of comedians

Those opposed to Proposition 8 in California and anyone who likes sanctimonious comedy might want to check out this Funny or Die! exclusive video of a mini-musical starring Jack Black, Andy Richter, Alison Janney, Margaret Cho, Maya Rudolph, John C. Reilly, and actual gay person Neil Patrick Harris.

It’s only a few minutes long and says all the same things we’ve heard a million times before, but it means well. Linger a moment at the end and you can hear the sound of a dozen backs being patted.

Like, metaphorically.
