ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
This is utterly convincing. [via Robert Popper.]
Dude puts the loco in locomotive.
The Obama campaign should buy ad space and run this on national television.
My Muslim co worker saw this and wished he had a stiff drink to down.
Rhyming “derailed” and “will” was a brave move.
in case anyone didn’t notice, he’s the same little nut that posted this gem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOQsvOkkLq4&list=SP27ACD40F311C1A7B&index=4&feature=plpp_video
Wow! I’m having a Poe’s Law moment. This would be excellent as dry parody, but I’m 70% sure it’s not.
I don’t think his brain is connected to the rest of his body correctly.
Maybe the dude just has a totally weird boner.
You mean like one that simultaneously resembles a nametag, a rearing horse, and an airport?
‘Co-prophet of the end times’. Dude doesn’t even get top billing in his own fantasy.
They’ve set up an LLC apocalypse just in case things don’t go as planned.
In Kansas, it is tax free.
I’m wondering if that makes him equal partners with St John the Divine? That would be pretty darn close to top billing.
It must be hard seeing penises everywhere.
I see what you did there.
At least he found something meaningful to do with his life after the priesthood.
I just came out of the rabbit hole that is the conspiracy theories about the Denver Airport.
Wow. I think every artist can only aspire to that level of intense discourse about their work. That it’s done by nutters is only a minor detail.
Now I understand that demographic’s aversion to math. If rectangles (such as the Great Auk’s label) are phallic, then of course math is the devil.
Oh good grief. Where’s Tom Lehrer when you need him?
Congrats to Tim and Eric on another successful find!
This guy can be the new Richard Dunn.
In all seriousness, how did gayness become so important in politics?
When you don’t have anything else to run on vilification of the “other” is always a good way to get people riled up.
It’s the American way.
When he says, “gay” he really means “black”.
He got really excited for a second there about Obama’s Dark Tunnel.
My first impression of this guy before hearing any of the song was Log Cabin Republican.
I was getting a lot of shades of that.
I wonder if he actually Wants Obama to be gay??
It’d make his slash fic more plausible.
The video was fine until the latter half when it got just plain insulting. The video is good for the base, but it turns off independents. Don’t people know this?
Holy crap I hope this guys joking… because otherwise he’s certifiable…. look -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiwCNnbelZg
Hey, kids! How many turkeys can you count in this video? ONE…
I feel like this is JTT all over again. If Satan really is gay, there are going to be a lot of disappointed ladies out there.
Needs more cowbell.
Funny that he chose this whole train theme given that Romney/Ryan want to defund Amtrak and gut all railroad worker’s benefits. Of course he’s also a bit crazy…..
My thought exactly. Republicans hate trains (Atlas Shrugged notwithstanding).
Somehow I thought the “R” train would be carrying toxic waste…
It’s hauling tanks of Santorum.
Thank goodness we don’t have to rely on republicans for art, music, science or anything else that requires thought.
I doubt he was influenced by Chic.
Also, how any conservative can look at liberalism and think, “I’m having so much more fun.” is beyond me.
“Paid for by President Barack Obama”
Oh, BTW, interesting viewing of this guy’s other videos. Don’tcha know, he’s called the Third Eagle of the Apocalypse? Totally stable guy whose endorsement any candidate would want.
It’s third league apocalypse at best.
May I suggest this guy be the warm-up at Romney campaign stops? I’d like to see this get more widespread coverage.
Better than a dude talking to a chair
Not sure if trolling, exercising extreme irony or being serious. Brace yourselfs, one does not simply watch stupid people on youtube… without over-interpreting how they could be so stupid they come out right the other end as being utterly brilliant.
Red state arts and culture at its finest.
He’s hanging out in the ‘dark’ end of the tunnel, waiting to mug you..
The R Train only gets 2 stars on Yelp. Stay away! http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-r-train-new-york-2
Up to 1:43 I was having a laugh. Then the gay sex conspiracy verse started, and it became uncomfortable and confusing.
Needs a big floppy bow on his head and a Martin ukulele. (See where I’m going?)
I’d love to see that duet.
I don’t get the impression that Ms. Jackson likes to share the spotlight.
I don’t think he does much either. Not when you’re the Third Eagle of the Apocalypse.
“Skip that despair train.”
“But when I was on tour with the Fiasco band it was a DEMON hellride.”
More trenchant political analysis from one of Mitt Romney’s supporters.
Aw… It thinks it’s people!
OMG, is that for real? My brain is exploding. Fer real.
Who the fuck IS that ijit??
I’m grateful he included subtitles since I don’t speak redneck.
Actually, that was French.
I thought trains were for commies.
This song made me heterophobic.
That dude is totally not hetero!
Is there anyone here claiming to have gaydar who thinks otherwise?
What we have here is another clear case of a victim of communal childhood indoctrination, overcompensating for his perceived shortcomings.
He KNOWS how strong Satan’s temptation is.
His life is hell, he cracked under the pressure.
I was expecting something more like:
♫ Come to the Romney campaign, old chum! ♫
♫ Come to the Romney campaign! ♫
Next line: “Life is full of San-to-rum!”
I’m all for therapeutic recreational activities for the mentally ill. Keep it in the cuckoo’s nest though. Publishing the subject’s achievements on YouTube may cause some minor patient doctor confidentiality issues.
Anyone else hoping for a different, more dramatic ending at 2:40?
The tragedy our age: Every doofus with a computer can do lame green screen effects.
That wasn’t real?
I was so hoping the train would take him out …
Ohh… I was hoping it would end with an Oh Long Johnson train related death…
Appropriate use of comic sans.
Viral marketing for a new season of the “Tim & Eric Awesome Show: Great Job!” ? I AM SUSPICIOUS.
This fellow is a few tick-tocks short of a cuckoo clock!
This is sad. What is even more pathetic is that the only thing the Romney supporters have to go on are lies.
Gees, chill. Some old guy is having some fun with video, keyboard, a song and politics and everyone is getting all herniated over it.
Crap people, give hom a break, the video is funny, definitely not ROFL funny but still funny enough.
As for embarrassing American politics, Paul Ryan the pseudo Catholic with his publicly declared love for the atheist “Greed is God” Ayn Rand, nothing does more to embarrass American politics than that pathological liar does.
Finally! Some music the Republicans can play at their events that the artist won’t insist they stop playing!
Too bad the train wasn’t a little bit to the right.
its about the only thing in the video which wasn’t
Too bad they used a green screen.
