Ladies and gentlemen, can I please have your attention. I've just been handed an urgent and horrifying news story. I need all of you, to stop what you're doing and listen. 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.

According to a press release, "Good Cop Baby Cop" will mark the end of Pearl's career. Yes, the star of "The Landlord" which has more than 35 million views on Funny or Die is calling it quits. The two year old released the following statement regarding her retirement:

"My ventures as an actor on the internet have been rewarding and spiritually fulfilling, but now I must look to broader challenges as I approach my 26th month,” says Pearl. “I shall always reflect upon these days with much fondness, and also, I have no idea what I just said, and I want banana-nana and the upside down show"

Its a shame to see such a gifted comedic thespian calling it quits at such a young age. At least her retirement will give her more time to "get her drink on".
