Brilliant
20 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This video takes political satire, Subgenuis-esquire humor and sampling to a whole new level.

Songs are composed, with the visuals from their sample source often "sung" by prominent politicians, lobotomized homemakers, army grunts and preening French actors.

This is a brilliant piece in it's own right and has the power to delight digital musicians, Negativland people, Mariah Carey haters, politically dubious or drug-addled teens alike.

Undoubtedly clever, absurdly hilarious and damn catchy.

If you like the idea of George Bush furrowing his brow and stoically singing "We Will Rock You", this video may make you giggle like a schoolgirl.

Unique and recommended.
