A little over a year ago, Don Cheadle took on the role of Captain Planet in a hilariously ridiculous Funny or Die video. The spoof came hot on the heels of the news that a live-action adaptation of the Captain Planet animated series was in the works, and skillfully pointed out how horribly wrong that idea can go. Cheadle has once again donned the tights for a sequel Captain Planet video, but this time the character has grown into an environmentally conscious dictator with a penchant for turning everyone into trees. I actually think this one’s even funnier than the first video, and it features a nice return cameo from Efren Ramirez as the last remaining Planeteer.
Hit the jump to see Captain Planet take humanity down to zero.
