Amid escalating tensions of disease and terror around the world, the national media has focused on yet another Hollywood scandal: is pop singer Janna Hospice really a mass of voles? The social media storm has raged on both sides of the debate, but in a recently released video interview The Onion gets to the bottom of the mystery.

This immediately became pretty much my favorite thing The Onion has done. God, it's do good.

Vincent Adultman was unavailable to comment due to "a work-business meeting".

That first clip at the beginning, where she falls apart in the street, is right out of BrassEye/The Day Today and is just amazing. Awesome.

(This is one of my favourite Onion clips)

I've been saying for years that owls need to be brought into every celebrity interview but until now I was unsure of why I felt this was necessary.

This reminded me an awful a lot of the Everything Is Animals bit on Improv4Humans (45:03 in this episode). I prefer the blissful delight of discovery in the improv bit to the manufactured nature of the Onion video.

Had to check that there wasn't actually a pop star named Janna Hayspice.

Oh, and did codacorolla's autocorrect make a boo-boo?

Ugh, celebrity gossip? So what? A forgettable pop star is a sentient mass of voles; big damn deal. When did MeFi become TMZ?

Wasn't this a Far Side?

Yessssss, I totally agree, turbid dahlia. That interviewer really went in there, like a ferret with a tape.

Nicely done. I also like the next video "Audience Tricked Into Being Scared Of Pretend Monsters".

Heh -- I was trying to find a transcript for Janna's dialogue and came across the Onion's original (anonymized) audition page for the role (archive in case it disappears).
