As a promotion for the upcoming two-hour episode of “The Following,” someone at Fox decided to make the video above, in which Dean Winters (“30 Rock’s” Dennis Duffy and Mayhem in those insurance commercials) and Kevin Bacon have lunch and then get Followed by folks including Michael C. Hall and Kyra Sedgwick… It all makes perfect sense if you watch the show. The point is, Dean Winters re-enacts World War II with toys in his bathtub. Important.
The video, directed by showrunner Marcos Siega, is titled “Funny And Die” because it’s meant to be funny and because (spoiler!) people die — but this definitely wasn’t made by Funny Or Die.
