5. Policy and Politics from the Vlogbrother's John Green
4. Whedon on Romney
Avengers director Joss Whedon explains why many people might consider supporting Mitt Romney. This video has fun at Romney's expense, obviously, highlighting the potentially bad effects Romney's tax plan may have on our currently weak economy. Joss Whedon is just very funny. I heart him.
3. Barack Obama Sings "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen
If you've been reading my site long enough, you might recall my feelings about this particular song, but I couldn't help but bust out laughing at the very well done editing needed to create this masterpiece. I only wish they'd autotuned it like they did with Bob Ross and Mister Rogers. Then it would have been amazing.
2. Mitt Romney Style
I love "Gangnam Style." I want to be 100% up front with that. Not ironically. Not "ha ha, those crazy foreigners." I loved it from the first moment I saw it. I seemed to find it just about a week before it exploded into the mainstream. But, unforunately, it has not only been played nearly to death, but it's spawned 1000 godawful parodies. If you can stomach trying out one more, College Humor's "Mitt Romney" style does a legitimately good job at spoofing both the original song, the original video, as well as skewering both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. (They actually make him about 20 times more likable than the actual Mitt Romney, which is sort of ironic given the content of the video.)
1. Epic Rap Battles of History: Mitt Romney vs. Barack Obama
The Epic Rap Battles of History are fantastic. They have steadily improved from their first video, and there really isn't a video that I can't recommend. Not only are the videos good from a hip-hop persepctive, they're also very cleverly written to satire/honor both participants with some great burns from both sides. They've done Doc Brown vs. Doctor Who, Cleopatra vs. Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley vs. Michael Jackson, and many more.
Their Romney/Obama video is no different. They fantastically spoof both men, revealing the flaws that both men suffer from. Also, this video features a certain bearded special guest. It is truly a work of art.
