So which Senator got served? With a subpoena?

The face-synching was actually pretty good considering.

Sarah Palin's head looked kind of small in proportion to her body in the last cut. Face-synching--kind of creepy looking.

...DAYAMN!

Finally I understand US politics.

(That was truly dope. Thanks!)

This is truly impressive -- the amount of patience involved in frame-by-frame mapping this is beyond me.

It's funny how the watermarks on the video present a kind of digital age provenance. Maybe not that funny.

Cool vid, though.

This made my idiot phone meeting almost bearable this afternoon, thank you.

The process is called match moving, & it's not necessarily an entirely manual process (which would be horrific).

I love McCain's expressions for their goofiness.

In an alternate reality, someone is linking to a video of aging MCs B-Bomber and J-Mac's latest battle rap digitially superimposed over footage of the second Wahlburg-Timberlake debate.

Senator, I have seen krumping: I know krumping; krumping is a friend of mine. Senator, you're not krumping. You're, like, flying through the air and shit.

Ahh, that was pretty funny. Made me laugh on a dreary afternoon.
Thanks for the post.

I'm sorry, but it completely fails to be on.

ON!!, not on. It's ON!!

To be fair, while Obama is the better beatboxer, Senator McCain has more experience being beaten while in a box.

This election has been the most entertaining for people like me who don't find american elections entertaining.

Cool, but those last comments about Palin just kill it.

Brandon Blatcher: Cool, but those last comments about Palin just kill it.

Agreed. But the look on McCain's face two or three times was what saved it for me. Milk spurt out my nose at one point, and I hadn't drank any milk for days.

After much late-night goofing on YouTube, some Obama love from Japan. They seem to have some awesome electric guitars out there; the dude playing it didn't even connect it to an amp!
