How to Search on Funny or Die

Another way to look for something is by browsing. Click Browse in the top header and take a look at the drop down menu.

Rating a Funny or Die Video
When you watch to watch a video, simply click the thumbnail picture of it, and you’ll be redirected to the video’s page. The video will begin playing immediately.
At the bottom of the video is the rating system – Funny or Die. Watch the video to see if you like or dislike it. If it made you laugh, click the yellow Funny button. If it didn't tickle your funny bone, click the red Die button.
When you’ve rated it, your rating will take over the bottom of the screen.
Starring a Video on Funny or Die
Let’s say you’re looking for a specific video. But you run across an article about how to have the best Halloween ever. It’s not the video you’re looking for, and you really want to keep looking for the video, but you really want to read the article. Or maybe you watched something and want to save it so you can watch it again later.You can star a video or article to save it for later viewing (or reading).
To star a video or article, simply move your mouse cursor over the thumbnail, and a small star will appear in the top right. Click it to put it into your favourites to view later.
To view the content you’ve starred, click your user name in the top-right corner of the page, and a drop down menu will appear. Click the star with the number next to it to show your starred content. Click on a video to watch it, or click on an article to read it.
And that's a quick tour of how to use Funny or Die!
