NEW YORK (AP) - Will Ferrell has returned to his President George W. Bush impression, this time to respond to the death of Osama bin Laden.

In a Web video posted Wednesday on Funny Or Die, Ferrell’s Bush sends his remarks from a Sizzler steak house in Texas. His message? He has personally overseen a “strategic and covert operation,” killing a gopher that had been terrorizing his backyard.

The parody ends with the Bush character getting the news that bin Laden has been killed. That makes “two good things,” he says.

Ferrell’s impression of Bush was popular on “Saturday Night Live.” He resurrected it in a 2009 Broadway show, as well as in sporadic videos.

Watched by more than 110,000 by Wednesday afternoon, the video was rapidly gaining viewers.
