Ok, this has got to be the funniest thing I have seen in a long time and so apropos!  Who else but a gaggle of daytime soap veterans can make this commentary on a dying soap opera so irreverant and side-splitting funny? No one.  From creators, Scott Bryce ( Ex-Craig, ATWT) and Michael O’Leary (Ex-Rick, GL) Steamboat is their new web soap spoof that is just what the doctor ordered in soaps ailing times. The  duo are touting the series as a mix of The Office and All My Children in the desperate but dying days of a daytime soap opera.

Filled with some of your favorites from GL including Kim Zimmer, Justin Deas, Kurt McKinney, Orlagh Cassidy and Beth Chamberlin, and ATWT’s Michael Park, you must watch the video teaser below. We won’t spoilt the surprise who each of these soap vets plays in the parody!  Enjoy!
