I kept waiting for it to stop sucking. I gave up around minute three when the wizard was asking us to say "U.S.A" to Obama.

Did it somehow get better in the last minute?

No, the last minute was as crappy as the first three.

I'll take Manhattan in a garbage bag. With Latin written on it that says "It's hard to give a shit these days"

I found it really confusing: On one hand, its 'patriotic' message is too badly made to take it seriously, but if it was an attempt at satire, then it should have made the wizard less pathetic: Rooting against him felt a bit like rooting for Kasparov in a chess match against a three year old.

So I wonder: One can't really fail so bad at regular comedy, or at satire. Therefore, the video must have a deeper meaning, but I guess I am not worthy of figuring it out.

I actually thought it was pretty entertaining. Of course, I found myself rooting for Freedom Wizard, and thought the best part was when Freedom Wizard blew Noam Chomsky's head off*.



*Note - in truth, I do agree with some of Chomsky's positions (especially regarding the bullshit "war on drugs"), but in the main, I find his political views tedious and annoying. and often propped up by his fast and loose play with facts. He is, however, a great linguist.

Specious arguments are not proof of trollish intent.

Anybody that failed to see that the car was the hero of the piece just missed the point entirely. When it ran over that flag dropped by the wizard??? Classic cinema. I give this an A+ for amusement, an A+ for execution, and a D- for Chomsky's wig.
