Excellent, especially the use of Oscar in the trash can.

This reminds me of how the southpark guys got discovered. I mean, with all the quality home-brew stuff out there these days I don't think the southpark skit would ever have even been noticed. And it would have been a good thing, because southpark sucks now.

PROTIP- If one quarter of the running time of your feature is closing credits, consider a faster scroll.

This is instantly better than all of that Kermit the Frog stuff people have been putting together.

Going on what The Deej said, can we refer all further complaints about one link youtube posts to this one?

Except that South Park was original. I'm not saying this isn't amusing, but find me something on YouTube that's both good and not based in its entirety on someone else's copyrighted work, and then maybe I'll start to believe that I am a citizen journalist and the person of the year and so forth.

There are a lot of bar bands that can sound pretty good covering Beatles or Zeppelin songs, especially if you've had a few beers. There are significantly less Beatles and Zeppelins.

not to derail, but for the record I have seen exactly one thing ever on youtube that was both funny and not based on someone else's copyrighted work.

this is it.
