I like the idea of that video, but it would be funnier if it were, y'know, funny.

I find it entirely plausible that these are actual TSA employees.

This pretty much captures the essence of airport security.

It's great that someone can add frustrating non-humor to the frustratingly humorless experience of airport security in the States. I'm with A. Shanks- I could actually see this being a real attempt by TSA employees to be funny.

Apparently that starred Zack Selwyn from G4's Attack of the Show. As far as I know, he does not work for the TSA. DEbunked!

I don't know... there were some quite funny deliberately strained rhymes in there. 'Easter/Barrista' works for me. The whole thing feels a bit try-hard, though. That's the problem with doing parody songs or raps - they've got to be good on their own terms before you add the parody element. And if you don't alter the chorus each time, it's like having a stand-up repeat the same joke every ninety seconds. And the chorus to this isn't even good or funny. So.

Wow, long long time since I've been offended by something on the internet... I supposed actual humour might have helped.

anything that can rhyme "pre-9/11 mentality" gets my vote ;)

Not exactly related but look at the view count. Guess it means something?? ;]

The production quality of this was surprisingly high. Doesn't make up for the lack of humor, but I guess you can't have everything.

On the low the funniest thing in this video is the that black girl in the back and the faces she makes its positively ridiculous. I also liked "let me squeeze them titties or the terrorists have already won" . The trouble is who ever wrote this doesn't understand slang so he over uses and misuses it.

TSA! LoL!!!

TSA jokes are 21st century answer to the hack airplane jokes of the 80's. "They're looking for the black box? Why don't they just make the whole airplane out of the black box! HA! Women are bad drivers, and men hog the remote!"

Die.

The chorus, if not surrounded by all the unfunny, would actually be a decent way to remind the public of verboten items. "Belt buckle money clip" could be the McDonald's Menu Song or Roy G. Biv of the Post-9/11 world.

Yep. I assumed that was part of the joke. There was one expression they misused so much it almost started making me mad so I went the other way and decided they did it deliberately, to enhance the funny. Meh.

My other thought I just wonder how them missed "throw some keys on it". Its like der.

"Put some Ds on it, run it through." It's a reference from this hip hop song.

Maybe they couldn't get permission to use the line as a parody. I don't know why they bothered at all because the way they used the expression is dumb and doesn't make any sense even within the context of the joke. (For the hip hop terminology-impaired, here is what "throw some D's" means.)

Good point-- I guess there are rap jokes less funny than this TSA thing.
