Sarah’s Happy voice in cartoon short

Posted by Gator on October 23rd, 2014

Sarah voices one of the lead characters in The Unbelievably Sweet Alpacas, a cartoon short that addresses the social concern: Is economic inequality growing? 

In addition to Sarah in the role of Happy, the film features Amy Poehler (Sunshine), Maya Rudolph (Giggles), Sarah Silverman (Happy), Billy Eichner (Lollipop) and Andy Richter (Dough Vanshaw). The cartoon runs a little under six minutes, and is directed by Adam McKay.

Shalomlife reported that the 46 year old director–after spending most of his 20s clueless about the government decisions on trade policy, wages, pollution and war–became interested in economics and finance. “Once anyone starts looking at the underlying economic reasons behind these bizarre choices they make a lot more sense. It doesn’t mean it’s any less frustrating or infuriating but at least I started seeing the dog isn’t chasing his tail just to chase his tail, there’s a liver treat tied to it,” McKay explained.

The Unbelievably Sweet Alpacas is part of a new film series titled We the Economy: 20 Short Films You Can’t Afford to Miss. The series features films that pair comedians with directors, as well as economic advisors, and presents them in an array of different styles and lengths.

Video: Sarah protests V-tax with sex change

Posted by Gator on October 8th, 2014

Don’t miss Sarah’s new public service announcement concerning the gender gap!

And to learn more about the cause…

Equal Payback Project

 

Go here to see full credits for the PSA video.

UPDATE: This is what Sarah tweeted in response to the extensive online backlash about the video from the trans-gender community who accused Sarah of being  insensitive to their plight:

If I literally got a sex change I would indeed find the work force far less friendly. The video wasn’t transphobic it was transignorant – never crossed my mind. But to my *unintentional* credit- people are talking about it & so begins awareness. Please don’t punish this cause because of my video. I certainly don’t only fight for causes that concern or benefit me and I expect the same of the vital trans community.
