(CBS) Will Ferrell has brought out his George W. Bush impression once again, this time to respond to the death of Osama bin Laden.

In a video posted Wednesday on Funny or Die, Ferrell, as the former president, sends solemn remarks from a Sizzler steak house in Texas.

He tells viewers that he has "personally overseen a strategic and covert operation" - killing a gopher that had been tearing up his backyard and ruining wife Laura Bush's fruit trees.

He then gets word from an aide that bin Laden has been killed.

"They got bin Laden? Well, that's two good things," he declares.

The video has already been viewed more than 275,000 times as of Wednesday afternoon.
