[Video Link] Special effects are used here in an attempt to artificially enhance the credibility of candidate Mitt Romney. I hope the public isn't fooled into taking him more seriously because of this video.
because nothing says “serious” like looking like Max Headroom.
Ah.. Max Headroom. At the time a damning indictment of corporate television being broadcast on corporate television. Well, the BBC. Anyway, it contributed deeply to my paranoid conspiracist side that it was never released on VHS for rental. I figured there would be more rioting on the streets if it had. Finally released on DVD in late 2010, we got Occupy in 2011. Coincidence? I think not!
Looks a lot like Dennis Hopper in the preview frame.
…but I’m still not going to light my hair on fire! My precious, precious hair.
I’ll see your ho-hum Romney beatboxing vid, and raise you a brilliant and too-short Dan Bull Republican rap battle vid.
This is friggin’ nicely executed. With all the easy (and hilarious) criticism, not to mention the sacred underwear, I’ll be quite surprised if Mittens Romney even gets close to Obama in the election.
From someone outside the US, I had wondered what “Mitt” was short for. I thank you; the Internet thanks you.
“President Romney”… get used to saying it.
That is quite the derp expression the video references for a thumbnail…
