In their new movie "The Campaign," Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis play congressional candidates Cam Brady and Marty Huggins, respectively, facing off in a heated and hilarious election. Like all political candidates, Brady and Huggins duke it out in a debate.

So did the stars learn anything about the art of argumentation while filming the movie? This new video from Funny Or Die shows that the answer is clearly... no.

Ferrell and Galifianakis appear on the fake public access show "The Debate-thletes" and compete against children in a series of questions about movies. You would think there wasn't a better subject for these stars to tackle, yet their young opponents answer questions about Academy Award-nominated films and Pixar movies with ease, but Ferrell and Galifianakis have some trouble coming up with the right responses. The problem is, they just can't focus, opting to take part in such non-kid-friendly activities as spitting, drinking and drawing a picture of a certain body part.

Here's hoping their "Campaign" characters provide a livelier debate... and these kids aren't scarred for life.
