“What We Call the News”
The Spiridellis Brothers are at it again. Gregg and Evan Spiridillis,, the creaters of Jibjab.com had their latest satiricial cartoon "What We Call the News" shown on The Tonight Show last night (for all the insomniacs or recovering insomniacs such as myself that are just get ting started at 11:30 Eastern).
Done in the style made famous by South Park’s Terence-and Phillip show (you know what I mean, the heads split open from the mouth up), and sung to the Battle Hymn of the Republic paradies the evolution of the ole’ time 6:00 pm television news anchors to our current world of cable news and Fox-style "reporting." Fans of the ongoing sitcom Rosie and the Donald (and even pet lovers) will appreciate the clip of the poor innocent cat.
In you aren’t sure of the clever words sung by the singing heads, they are shown ticker-style at the bottom of the screen.
