Soledad Joins In On High Five Inauguartion Video

On the lighter side of the Inauguration...



Two cousins worked the Presidential Inauguration trying to give/get as many high-fives as possible for a video that has plenty of hits on Will Ferrell's Funnyordie.com comedy video site.

The "High-Five" clip shows the cousins in Washington, D.C., amid the inauguration celebration for the 44th president of the United States. Between scenes of landmarks around the nation's capital, high fives were shared with a variety of famous faces.

According the the cousins' MySpace page, they are "cousins born 10...no 11...wait more like 14 days apart. We've literally been making each other laugh since we were born."

Working from a wishlist of 50 people they wanted to get in on the joke, they captured politico cameos from House majority leader Steny Hoyer, incoming White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, former New Hampshire and DNC chair Howard Dean, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, former presidential candidate Gen. Wesley Clarke, author Peggy Noonan, Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., and Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin, D-Ma.

They also grabbed cameos from media folks including CNN's Larry King and Soledad O'Brien (you can jump to 1:40 for her) CBS Early Show Saturday co-anchor Erica Hill, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, Courtney Hazlett and Tucker Carlson, Huffington Post's own Arianna Huffington and commentators Pat Buchanan and Paul Begala.

Celebrities John Legend, Sarah Silverman, Raven-Simone, Jack Black and Web "Obama Girl" Amber Lee Ettinger.

Jake Szymanski and Bob Turton did the video for FunnyOrDie.com and Szymanski had already done the Paris Hilton's response to a John McCain campaign ad and Ron Howard's pro-Obama "call to action" video, (which reunited Howard with Andy Griffith and Henry "Fonz" Winkler).
