LOS ANGELES, Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Funny Or Die, the top destination for comedy on the web and mobile, today launched a free weather app. Funny Or Die Weather — featuring real, accurate weather and original comedy — can be downloaded here.
"Smart, accurate weather has always been the number one goal of Funny Or Die, despite what you might have thought," says Funny Or Die CEO Dick Glover. "Funny Or Die cofounders Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are meteorologists first and businessmen second. As California residents, they know all too well the unpredictability of mother nature — when you can swing wildly from a 78° degree sunny day to a 77° or 81° without reason it can be unsettling. Safe, reliable weather forecasting can add some stability to the uncertain world," he added.
"One time I went outside my front door and three guys attacked me. Does that count as weather?" added McKay.
Powered by Weather Underground, the Funny Or Die Weather app provides detailed weather forecasts with funny commentary, jokes, and animations. Users can also share jokes and weather with friends via text, email, or social media.
The Funny Or Die Weather app is the first in a series of apps Funny Or Die plans to release in 2015.
