OK this is just funny
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, October 11, 2006

In case you haven't seen it here's the David Zucker ad which will never make it to TV. Zucker is the producer and director of such comedies as "The Naked Gun", "Scary Movie 4" and "Airplane":


Reaction?
One GOP strategist said "jaws dropped" when the ad was first viewed. "Nobody could believe Zucker thought any political organization could use this ad. It makes a point, but it's way over the top."
Well yeah, but it is funny. More ads, on both sides, like this, and I may take the time to watch one or two. Sarcasm and satire, in my view, sometimes get the message across better than the serious stuff. Case in point, "The Daily Show". Be honest, you remember the points made by Jon Stewart much better than those made by some crew doing a point-by-point about how bad so-and-so is, don't you?

I didn’t realize Kim Jong Il had such a great vertical leap! I mean, I was aware of his exploits the first time he took up golf, but he could feed all of NoKo with what he could make on an NBA contract.

It looked like Kim had a traveling problem, but I guess it would be hard to find a referee willing to call him on it.

That was a crack-up. But was it really intended as something that might actually be used on TV? It was definitely parodying attack ads in general, and I found it hard to tell whether he was serious about the ad’s message or was actually mocking it. It certainly wouldn’t be very effective.

I think it would certainly work on the internet, where it’s much more "anything-goes" than on TV. In fact, it looks like it’s already getting internet circulation...

I don’t know about most families, but I know ours relies less and less on TV for video entertainment and more and more on YouTube. There may be a future for ads like these!

Well it’s not banned but it has been flagged and thus you have to sign in with a youtube account (free I think) to view it. Read the message
This video may contain content that is inappropriate for some users, as flagged by YouTube’s user community.
So it appears a bunch of people flagged it to try to censor it and prevent people from viewing it. This being the internet, I doubt it will work.

But seriously, if you get a letter from a guy in Nigeria........

It is funny. It’s a parody. Lighten up and get over yourself Davebo ... there’s a reason it was catagorized as "humor".

I agree the ad is hilarious McQ.

I just don’t buy that it was ever intended to be used as a political ad.

Sorry if I misunderstood.

I remember watching the Daily Show constantly during the 2000 election issues. Was a heck of alot more interesting then the MSM.

I think just about everyone in the Blogosphere has seen this commercial, but, it still needs to get out just a couple times onto regular tv.

It’s comedy... the reactions to this kind of stuff is almost as funny as the piece itself.

It’s an inkblot, everyone thinks it’s funny, but I think it’s funny because it mocks the people claiming everything is Clinton’s fault, others think it’s funny because it highlights in a humorous way that everything WAS Clinton’s fault.

I read that Zucker was a Democrat and is now a Republican, but when I see this, I can’t help but wonder if he is a Republican like Stephen Colbert is a Republican.

Still, great comedy whatever his politics are... course I am not one of those people that don’t watch an artist because I disagree with their politics... for a liberal libertarian (I don’t care, I’m using it) that’s pretty easy, most people I disagree with aren’t very talented anyway.
