Just days after releasing a video that rails against what she calls a "vagina tax," Jewish comedian Sarah Silverman teamed up with Chelsea Handler to re-create the feminist film duo from "Thelma & Louise."

The pair dressed up as the characters from the film – originally portrayed by Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon – for People magazine's 40th anniversary issue.

In the video, Silverman and Handler sit in a '66 Thunderbird like the one in the original 1991 film and chat about road trips and whether they would take the plunge Thelma and Louise do.

Other of the magazine's photo re-creations include Jewish jokesters Seth Meyers and Andy Samberg in 1982's "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial."
