Over on one of our favorite sites FunnyOrDie.com, famous humanitarian actor Sean Penn appeared on an episode of Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis to discuss Haiti…well kinda.
If you haven’t yet seen the brilliant series, Between Two Ferns is an unscripted public access style show where Galifianakis asks today’s big celebrities inappropriate questions and basically just makes everyone feel uncomfortable. In short, it’s hysterical. On the most recent episode, Sean Penn was asked to talk about his work in Haiti. The exchange went something like this:
Galifanakis: I’m real interested in the work you’ve been doing down in Haiti. Tell us a little about that?
Penn: Well, after the…
Galifanakis: Is there a Six Flags down there?
Penn: There’s not. No.
Galifanakis: OK, we can move on.
Although Zach may not have let Penn speak, the actor has done much to help rebuild Haiti. In an article on The Huffington Post, Sean writes, “I and those I work with have operated 24-7 throughout the city of Port Au Prince and the country at large for all these months, distributing thousands of water filters, food, medicine, medical supplies and volunteers throughout the days and nights from the back of pick-up trucks and helicopters. We have directly been responsible for hiring and supervising rubble removal crews, heavy equipment, and coordinating multiple NGO actions from Cash for Work and food/water distribution.”
