Can we just let this song die already? Umpteen million parodies are NOT funny.
The butler wipes Romney's ass. Now that's Romney's arrogance as he truly is.
I love the Ann with the riding crop.
I wonder if she uses it on Mitt in real life.
Matt Walton is brilliant.
I have never seen the original just the parody and this one is funny.
I saw Matt Walton do Hair several years ago and play Berger....very nice naked.
I read a really interesting article about the meaning behind original video and song. The whole thing is actually a political satire about the meaningless wealth in a depressed economy.
The artist is making fun of the faux-elite who rack up their credit card with enormous debt, eat Ramen home to save and buy a 5$ cup of Starbucks out in public and strive for nothing more than to appear wealthy while their own economy ais crumbling around them.
In other words- many of the Romney voters.
Thanks for that, R15. I somehow missed this whole Gangnam style thing and when I watched the video on youtube yesterday, I was clueless.
But I just watched the Romney parody and it was really funny. I probably should have watched it first. There is just such a "fuck you" tone to it.

Makes the parody all that more hilarious really.
I keep rewatching this thing and seeing more in it. That's a Chris Christie clone in the elevator.
In some shots, the Mitt Romney character looks more like John Huntsman.
Paul Ryan, eat your heart out!
Sunday morning talk show bump
pre-second debate bump
I'd love it if they played this at the beginning of the debate, just to identify some of the issues.
bump just because I had to watch it again.
That was a great idea with a brilliant execution. I loved that!
But I agree that they missed an opportunity with Ryan -- they hit Mitt so accurately, but missed completely with Ryan, who is just as easy a target, I would think.

Heeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyy, wealthy ladies!
