Would you believe that the William J. Clinton Foundation’s next big project is a “global breathing initiative,” an effort to cut down on carbon emissions by encouraging people to hold their breath for one minute every day?
What about an “international bake sale, changing the world one cookie at a time”?
Such are the ideas playfully proposed by Kristen Wiig, the comedic actress, who appears with other A-list actors in a new Funny or Die video spoofing the Clinton fund as part of its 10th anniversary celebration.
With a deadline looming, Ms. Wiig and other members of the Clinton philanthropy’s “celebrity division” are frantically brainstorming new ideas to help the foundation “do even more good over the next 10 years.”
Matt Damon thinks the celebrity division can strengthen its cohesion by starting a softball team. Jack Black composes a theme song. A slacker Ted Danson proposes an impressive-sounding “urban entrepreneur program” to provide 72,500 hours of free consulting to businesspeople—but it turns out he’s ripped the idea from the Clinton fund’s press materials.
