A new video starring Will Ferrell and Pearl, who we all remember as "The Landlord" will be available tomorrow on Funny or Die at 5pm PST.

In the new video, titled "Good Cop Baby Cop," Ferrell plays "Angel" a criminal who will not cooperate with the police forcing them to turn to the toughest cop, a baby cop they call "The Confession Machine" played by Pearl.
