Donald Trump’s Art of the Deal: The Movie features Johnny Depp as the titular businessman Funny or Die is no stranger to satire, with series such as Between Two Ferns featuring Zach Galafianakis and Drunk History on Comedy Central. The film and TV production company, founded by comedian Will Ferrell and writer Adam McKay, most recently released a full, feature-length parody film based on Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal. Starring Johnny Depp as the titular business mogul and also an ensemble cast of comedians, the film’s setting harkens back to the glory days of the 80s. Funny or Die: Johnny Depp as Donald Trump With lo-fi VHS quality picture and audio, cheesy new-wave synth pop, and a time when Trump actually did have hair, The Art of the Deal: The Movie will remind viewers of his arduous rags to riches story, with highlights including: his humble beginnings as a young urban professional with nothing but the shirt on his back and an earnest loan of $1,000,000, his great affinity towards races of all colors, and a very subtle “Trump for President” plug, foreshadowing his imminent victory. You can watch The Art of the Deal: The Movie exclusively at Funny or Die.   By Kenneth Vu
