As promised, Taylor Lautner's new Funny or Die video premiered on Wednesday, and it was totally worth the wait. The clip shows the 19-year-old in an NFL-inspired parody of the classic sports movie 'Field of Dreams.'

The video is a trailer for a new movie called 'Field of Dreams 2: NFL Lockout,' in which Taylor plays the main character. The clip spoofs the iconic line from the original baseball-themed flick in which a mysterious voice says: "If you build it, they will come."
Taylor decides "it" means a football field, which he creates by making bleachers, goal posts and a 100-yard space in his corn field. Sure enough, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, Atlanta Falcon tight end Tony Gonzalez and many more show up to play in the "National Corn League."

Earlier this year, an NFL labor dispute led team owners to lock out players, jeopardizing the 2011-2012 football season. Lawyers for the league and the players' association are currently negotiating the terms of a collective bargaining agreement that could end the lockout.

Check out the full Funny or Die video and let us know what you think of it in the comments. Oh, you can also take a look at how it all came together in the behind-the-scenes clip below.
