We can be summed up in one word Absolutely the most amazing movie I have ever seen, beyond my expectations (WARNING this is a movie link .mov file with sound, size 6.91MB but it's worth it) Whoever did this, did an excellent job ! Bravo !

Interesting little culture jam. Humorous, though perhaps a bit of an obvious fantasy.

Can't view .mov files, but if it's what I think it is, other formats are available here. [NB: URL NSFW, though the content seems to be OK.]

Bush's state of the union? It seems like a double, and yet I can't find it.

I can't make that link work, but if it's Brian Boyce's State of the Union then it is available at the illegal art website.

I would definitely recommend Brian Springer's Spin, available from the same site - big files there, though.

I applaud the crafting of this piece. Very well done.

Technology is what is seperating us from the activists of the 60s.

the best way to view .mov files is to use quicktime software
free to download mac or pc

Must be a damn long word--most words can be encoded in a handful of bytes.

It's not brian boyce's state of the union, it's an updated thing featuring cut clips and sound making it look like bush is giving congress an "honest" state of the union. I have to say it is hilarious and well done.

Actually, this link mentioned above is a mirror of it.

This is great. Good production & I applaud anything that makes the president look like a jackass. :)

Huh? Was this any different from the core message of Bush's original State of the Union address?

Summary:
Iraq & terrorist = evil. Us = good.
Those with us = good. Those against us = evil.
Either your with us or against us.
Evil will be punnished, blah, blah, blah....
We don't care who we have to kill, Let's Roll!

This is great. Good production & I applaud anything that makes the president look like a jackass. :)

I think most would agree he does a good job without any help. Great statesmanship inspires great satire.

hmmm - having now seen it thanks to the mirror i can say i much prefer chris morris's audio bush speech cut-up. the sentences are much more elaborate, the messages and humour more subtle (at first) but as syllables are spliced towards the end it becomes ridiculous, amusing and pretty offensive.

Absolutely the most amazing movie I have ever seen

I thought this was going to be something really amazing with an intro like that. But no. Just more crap.

Direct download to realplayer version (4.6MB).

One of the reason this works so well is the time it takes for them pesky wurds to travel from GW's brain to his mouth. The only train of thought he seems to have is the one you could drive through the pauses when he speaks.

Huh? I didn't think the State of the Union address was going to be given until next Tuesday.

Mark Gunderson of the Evolution Control Committee did this several years ago to Bush Sr. Excerpt (RA file) here.

I'm pretty sure it's not real.

Yeah but only if the fiction is better than the reality.
