A series of montages that parodies the introductory title sequences of generic 70s, 80s and 90s TV shows of various genres slowly turns into an absurdist meta slasher and then the parody becomes even weirder.
This is a great series of short video news that I first watched as a podcast. I came across it by chance when I was looking for news. What a discovery!
There are many episodes and a website (http://theonion.com) that has been in existence since the 70s. Yeah right!
The episode about Obama lip syncing had me falling over in laughter while the episode of sluts causing a major environmental disaster was a killer. Other episodes include how to put the spark back into your relationship with a cat, the end of the newspaper industry and what will you put on your garage floor when painting, and the abortion procedure episode were priceless.
To top it all, the individuals with upcoming bachelor parties subject to internet attack episode and the latest car that Ford suggest to everyone for 2010, the 1993 Taurus for $680 round up a great list.
And as each episode says, "since 1896, in 811 countries, this the news show everyone depends on!" Great!
