Cute, Funny and Horrible

The Landlord is a 2007 short comedy film starring Will Ferrell, Pearl McKay, and featuring Adam McKay.

In the film, Ferrell’s character is harassed by his landlord for overdue rent money. The landlord is a two-year-old girl (played by McKay’s daughter, Pearl) who dresses as a princess, swears at her tenant.

The film was directed by Adam McKay and Drew Antzis and written by Ferrell and McKay.

The film premiered on April 17, 2007 on Ferrell and McKay’s video website, Funny or Die. Since its debut, the video has been viewed more than 80 million times, and is a “Chosen One” meaning it was never rated by Funny or Die members. Shortly after, a short film featuring outtakes from the movie premiered.

In 2007 the Guy’s Choice Awards, presented by Spike TV, voted The Landlord “Most Viral Video.” Entertainment Weekly put it on its end-of-the-decade, “best-of” list.
