Today I present to you the next huge viral video, a star-studded fake trailer for the upcoming film Field of Dreams 2: NFL Lockout.
“If you build it, they will come” says the mysterious voice to Iowa farmer Taylor Lautner. Soon he is erecting goalposts and a makeshift set of bleachers to house his own football game in the middle of a cornfield. When Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez steps out of the corn, you know you have something special.
The clip is loaded with NFL stars and without ruining the video for you, I can tell you that the James Earl Jones role is filled beautifully. And you’ll never guess who plays NFL commish Roger Goodell. Plus, there’s an extra special treat after the credits run.
If only something this glorious could really come out of the NFL Lockout. Instead it brings nothing but misery and the possibility of a bleak, apocalyptic world where I don’t get the opportunity to beat all of my friends in our fantasy football league. Sigh.

Funny or Die is promoting the video through Twitter, as they ask you to tweet about it using the hashtag #FootballOrDie. Some of the actors in the viral vid have discussed it via the social media site –
Now, this is pretty great. It might even surpass last month’s wonderful fake TV series Football Cops starring the Manning bros.
